Going to Sturgis this year for the 75th?
Looking for a fun and free event specifically for Indian motorcycles and older American motorcycles?
Check out the 2015 Indian Motorcycle & Classic American Iron Black Hills Rally.
Many years ago we at American Iron Magazine put on events in Sturgis and Daytona for classic American iron riders. They were a lot of fun and very popular. After too many years of not holding these events we are resurrecting them for the 75th running of the Sturgis rally this year.
This year’s Indian Motorcycle & Classic American Iron Black Hills Rally will be held at the Buffalo Chip outside Sturgis, SD on Tuesday, August 4, 2015. This event is open to all riders of Indian motorcycles (old or new) and all pre-1984 American motorcycles. It includes a bike show and fun field events like the slow race, kickstart contest, plank ride and more.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Indian Motorcycle, American Iron Magazine, Motorcycle Rides & Cluture magazine, Dennis Kirk, Jerry Greers Engineering, Heather’s Leathers, Kiwi Indian and Sturgis Vintage Cycles, this event is free to all to participate or just to watch the fun and see some great old motorcycles.
The gates open for the 2015 Indian Motorcycle & Classic American Iron Black Hills Rally at 9 am for free registration. The field events start around noon, and trophies will be awarded at 4 pm. Rain or shine!
The bike show, which is open to all years of Indian motorcycles as well as all pre-1984 American motorcycles, is sponsored by American Iron Magazine and Dennis Kirk. Some of the bikes will be photographed and featured in the pages of American Iron Magazine.
Please help share the information on this event with your fiends who might enjoy it. Thanks and we look forward to another wonderful classic bike event.

I (Buzz Kanter) am so honored to be in the next painting by renowned artist David Uhl as part of his Daytona Beach Bike Week series.
The painting, which is not quite finished in this rendition, is of me racing my 1928 Harley JDH bobber against a guy in a 1920s Ford T hot rod on the beach with a pretty starter girl.
When finished I believe David will be selling copies of this work. I know I want one for my walls.
