Witness this amazing collection curated by Michael Lichter and Paul d’Orleans at the Chip’s Free Motorcycles as Art Exhibit.

Built For Speed

Explore a beautiful and thought-provoking display of motorcycles and related art during the Sturgis Rally at the Buffalo Chip’s 2014 Motorcycles as Art Exhibition. This year’s theme, “Built for Speed – Race Inspired Motorcycles and Art,” marks the sixth year in a row that the annual Buffalo Chip exhibit has been curated by famed motorcycle photographer Michael Lichter, and the second year with the Vintagent’s Paul d’Orleans. Together, they will show you the connections between motorcycle racing and custom bike designs inspired by racers with this impressive display, Saturday, Aug. 2 through Friday, Aug. 9.

The purity of purpose in the “Cut-downs” of the 1920s, “Bob-jobs” of the ‘30s, Café Racers of the ‘50s, “Drag-bike” choppers of the ‘60s, and “Street Trackers” of the ‘70s has had enduring appeal with customizers today. This display will guide you through both the original racers and the beautifully crafted custom bikes taking inspiration from them.

Each custom bike in the Built for Speed Exhibition reflects a different branch of racing: Speedway, Flat Track, Drag Racing, Board Track, Grand Prix and Land Speed Record. Race-themed painting, photography and prints by artists equally inspired by competition motorcycles will adorn the walls surrounding these amazing machines, in addition to an all new “21 Helmets” display from SeeSee Motor-Coffee in Portland.
