Rock, Rumble and Rebellion - 2016
Michael's employer, Kuryakyn has partnered with The Buffalo Chip to customize a motorcycle each year that capture a different aspect of their spirit each year. The bike is used to promote their venue and highlight the newest parts from Kuryakyn.
The 2016 bike was a Road Glide. Michael developed the parts list and vision. The paint and theme were a collaboration with painting legend, Gilby. The end result was a bike with lines and an organic rhythm which mimicked the flow of the music that blasts from the Buffalo Chip each and every night.
The 2017 bike was a Street Glide. 2017 marked the first year that professional racing would be held at the Chip.
The parts list and design were focused on performance as a theme. The ID team developed a custom, highbacked seat design with Mustang. Floorboards from the new Riot line and a New Hypercharger were incorporated in the build. Gilby again painted this bike based on the artwork shown here.
2018 marked the first year that an Indian was customized to be the bike of the Buffalo Chip.
A parts list utilizing a wide range of custom Indian parts list, PM wheels, and the design were all focused on Musical Rebellion.
Several theme ideas were shared with internationally renowned painter Marcus Pfeil who performed his art in spectacular fashion.
