This is your chance to show your stuff live and in person at the greatest motorcycle rally in the world. Dennis Kirk, with the support of the Sturgis Iron Horse Saloon and American Iron Garage Build Magazine are hosting the 2nd Annual Garage Build Motorcycle Show.

This show is for amateur builders only. Yes, we like pro-built bikes as much as anyone else but they have many other shows that they can participate in to display their skills. No professionally built motorcycles will be allowed in the show.

This show is for you, the person who didn’t build it to make money but rather for the fun and self satisfaction of being able to say…I did it myself and I’m really proud of it!

It doesn’t matter if it is mild or wild, as long as you did it yourself. If you built a ground up custom in your garage, we want to see it. If you heavily modified a stock motorcycle we want to see your bike too. In fact, even if you just bolted on some cool stuff and tweaked your basic stock ride to make it your own come on over to the Iron Horse Saloon and show it off. V-Twins, Metrics, Trikes, Cafes, Rats or any other cool rides are encouraged to participate.

What do you get for being in the Garage Build Show? First and foremost the opportunity to show off your pride and joy! In addition, the Iron Horse Saloon will treat you to a free lunch, yes it is a true free lunch! You will also get a free swag bag full of goodies, a chance at trophies, gift cards and the possibility of getting your bike featured in American Iron Garage Build Magazine. That is right, this is your opportunity to finally see your bike in an industry leading magazine where it rightfully belongs! There is no entry fee whatsoever. All you have to do is show up and you’re in the show.
