Ultimate Builder heading to Sturgis

Word has it that Harley-Davidson will not be hosting a ride-in show in Sturgis, SD this year. Combined with the fact that the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building has relocated to Germany from the Harley pavilion, this leaves the downtown area off Lazalle without the benefit of a custom Bike Show.

That was until Advanstar decided to bring the Ultimate Builder Circus to town. Details are being finalized with a projected mid-week date. A street located adjacent to the downtown Harley-Davidson facility will be closed down for the day to host the event.
