Join renowned U.S. and international custom builders and industry luminaries for a Meet and Greet breakfast to benefit Tech Ed scholarships. Builders whose work is displayed in the Buffalo Chip’s 2016 Motorcycles As Art Exhibition, curated by Michael Lichter, will gather with other invited top-name builders to shake hands, sign autographs and pose for pictures with fans and friends.

Ticket holders also enjoy a catered breakfast and a silent auction of selected items autographed by the builders—plus the chance to meet the Chip’s own Rod “Woody” Woodruff, Photographer Michael Lichter, and special surprise guests, too.


Visit with the likes of Bill Dodge, Eddie Trotta, Paul Cox, Roland Sands, Kevin Baas, Aki Sakamoto, Jeff Cochran, and many more to get the inside scoop on their one-off customs in this year’s exhibition. Cycle Source Editor Chris Callen and Hot Bike Editor Jeff Holt have bikes in the exhibit and will be on hand.

The event, organized by The Flying Piston and sponsored by Jekill & Hyde Exhaust, Kuryakyn, Misfit Industries and Yelvington USA, takes place Sunday, August 7 on the upper deck of the Big Engine Bar in the free-access CrossRoads at the Buffalo Chip.

The theme of Motorcycles As Art this year is, “Skin and Bones.” This invitation-only event once again showcases the most cutting-edge designers, fabricators and builders of today’s custom scene. Presented in a gallery-like setting at the Chip’s Russ Brown Event Center, the motorcycles are surrounded by artwork from both known and emerging artists in the genre, including a special tribute this year to Richie Pan Panarra. Motorcycles As Art is open August 6–12 from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

A limited number of builder breakfast tickets are on sale now at All proceeds benefit the Buffalo Chip’s Tech Ed Scholarship Fund established to help high school graduates and U.S. military veterans pursue motorcycling as a career. Silent auction items are provided by Harley-Davidson Footwear, Revere Seats, Artist Darren McKeag, Low Brow, Artist Atomic Bob, Aeromach, Cycle Source, Jekill & Hyde, Misfit Industries, Kuryakyn and more.
