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 KirkJerry 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.

Please consider subscribing to American Iron Magazine (for less than $2 per issue vs $7 on the newsstand) to get a great read and support events like this: IN PRINT or IN DIGITAL

Daytona Beach Bike Week Classic Harley Art by David Uhl

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.

Classic Motorcycle Ride To Milwaukee For Harley 110th Birthday Party

OK, I think I have my travel plans to Sturgis pretty close to wrapped up. So now I need to figure out what I am riding to Harley’s 110th birthday party. We at American Iron Magazine, Motorcycle Bagger and RoadBike are putting together a free ride for our readers to go to Milwaukee the end of August. One group of motorcycle riders from the west and one from the east meeting in the middle and heading north to Milwaukee.

Full details to follow shortly, but we do have planned stops at Harley dealers along the way where you can join up with us for a visit or a short ride, or to ride the entire distance. The more the better!

Motorcycle Bagger editor Dain Gingerelli will be leading the ride in from the west, and AIM editor Chris Maida will lead one ride from the East.

I (Buzz Kanter) will be leading a slower paced ride from the east for classic bikes and anyone wanting a more casual pace. Now I have to figure out what old Harley to ride.

I am considering a dirty old 1948 Harley Panhead we did a series of articles on in American Iron Magazine a few years ago called the Crustoration.

Everyone should have such problems!
