Custom ‘Sturgis’ bike built by Mitchell Tech is up for auction in Las Vegas

RAPID CITY, SD (KOTA) – How much is a custom Harley-Davidson built by college students worth? At least $25,000.

That’s the winning bid for a bike built by Tech Mitchell College students at Saturday’s Mecum Las Vegas auction. Of course, having the legendary Sturgis name emblazoned on the bike didn’t hurt.

The winning bid will be split between the Horse Aid and the Sturgis Rally Endowment.

Laura Klock, founder and president of Helping with Horsepower, along with students from Mitchell Technical College’s PowerSports program customized the 2018 Harley-Davidson Road Glide.

The bike had been donated to the city by Harley-Davidson, and with the work of Klock and second-year Power Sports Technology, it was transformed into an elite machine.

The finished bike featured the City of Sturgis Motorcycle Rally logo and the number 83, to commemorate the 83rd year of the Rally, set in ’80s-style racing stripes.
