Sturgis High School Students Build Motorcycle

April 30, 2012, 4:57 PM by Derek Olson

Sturgis High School Students Build Motorcycle
STURGIS, SD -

Sturgis is known for motorcycles.  It's only fitting that high school students there have been spending the last three months building a custom bike. That motorcycle was unveiled Monday.

Students transformed a Harley Davidson Road King into a Road Glide.

In the process of the build, these students learned skills that they'll keep forever, regardless of what they decide for a career.

"It may not be motorcycles, but it will be something and they can use all these same skills that they learned," mentor Keith Terry said.

"It's something that has widened my eyes in the career field, so it's something that I may be able to do in the future," Sturgis 12th grader Peter Schmit said.

The motorcycle will appear at area events and the magazine American Iron before being auctioned off. The money raised will benefit the Black Hills Special Olympics and the Sturgis Museum and Hall of Fame.

The bike has been valued at around $60,000.
