When asked to build a bike that represents one of Deadwoods most historical places, you have to swing for the fence. This build was a team effort between the owners & employees of the Saloon #10, Black Hills Cycles, and some of the biggest names in the motorcycle industry. Many handmade, custom one-off parts in order to keep the cost of the bike down, and maximize the amount donated to charity. The sponsors and their generous donations made this build and charity donation a huge success. Hawg Halters donated 3 degree wide glide triple trees, fork sliders, and front and rear brakes. BDL gave one of their 2" Open Belt Drives. S&S donated a Super E Carb and Stealth Air Cleaner. NAMZ CCP provided the complete custom wiring harness.
