Sturgis Buffalo Chip Ness-Customized Harley-Davidson Road Glide

The Ness Custom Road Glide is heading to the auction block at the 15th annual Sturgis Buffalo Chip Legends Ride to support the event’s mission of giving.

Sturgis, S.D. (February 22, 2022): The Sturgis Buffalo Chip and legendary aftermarket parts and custom bike builders Arlen Ness Motorcycles have unveiled a one-of-a-kind Harley-Davidson Road Glide built to be auctioned off at the 2022 Legends Ride charity event kickoff at Outlaw Square in historic Deadwood, SD Aug. 8, 2022.

The highlight of each year’s Legends Ride festivities in Deadwood is the special live custom motorcycle and art auction. This year’s auction features the truly unique race-inspired performance bagger by famed customizers Cory and Zach Ness. The stock Road Glide model, sponsored by Black Hills Harley-Davidson, includes a wide array of performance upgrades.

The Ness Road Glide is the first bike showcasing the new line of Performance Bagger products from Arlen Ness Motorcycles. Ness added extra horsepower to the Milwaukee-Eight powerplant in the form of a gold Ness Method air cleaner and a Vance & Hines 2-into-1 racing exhaust. The build features the new Pro Short fender, Legend Suspension, LePera seat, Ness Method fork legs and the wild gold anodized Ness Y Spoke wheels. Eye-catching Ness gold anodized floorboards, pegs, shift lever and derby cover, along with a stunning paint job from Riff Raff Customs complete the distinctive look of the bagger.
