The Best in Show at the Best of Shows: Metzeler 2005 Sturgis V-Twin Custom Bike Contest

This year there was only one place to be on Tuesday of Sturgis Bike Week: the Journey Museum in Rapid City, South Dakota where Metzeler held its third-annual Sturgis V-Twin Custom Bike Contest. Over 60 bikes competed in the five V-twin classes open to everything Metzeler-equipped with a proper waxing, to pro-built unlimited customs and choppers. The show was juried by all-star judges and featured drawings for prizes, introduction of Metzeler's newest ME880 300 tire - the 59th addition to the ME880 cruiser-tire lineup. The new ME880 300 is already the specified OE tire for bike builders Thunder Mountain Cycle and Swift. Metzeler's Sturgis V-Twin Custom Bike Contest has rapidly grown since its inception three years ago and is proving to attract the best of the best bikes from new builders to known pros. The array of Stage 1, 2, and 3, V-twin, customized, home-built bikes made picking a winner painfully difficult. But the awesome display of pro-built bikes in the Unlimited Custom and Unlimited Chopper classes made the choices nearly impossible. Each year the bar is raised and each year more builders step up to have a hand in pushing, bending, welding, and chroming the bar to ever higher heights with wild machines that reinterpret old-school or reinvent the future. Each class winner and Judge's Choice were awarded a trophy, with the top three in each class winning a set of Metzeler tires. Winner of Best in Show was awarded four sets of Metzeler tires and will be featured in Metzeler's 2006 ME880 advertising campaign. See the class winners and their bikes:
