2018 Legends Ride Auction Info
The successful Discovery Channel series that brought America the father-son team of Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr. is back. And the first two “American Chopper” episodes aired earlier this year feature a Sturgis Buffalo Chip-inspired custom bike, a project Paul Jr. took to heart. After meeting with Sturgis Buffalo Chip President Rod Woodruff, Teutul accepted the challenge to create a bike that would stand out as one of the most exceptional custom motorcycles on the planet, a bike that would go down in history as a testament to his incomparable talents.
S&S Harley-Davidson Dyna Low Rider
In honor of the Legends Ride 10th anniversary, S&S has tweaked a 2017 Harley-Davidson Dyna Low Rider into a sleek club-style chopper powered by a T143 Black Edition engine packing 143 cubic inches of 165 to 170 horsepower to the wheel. Harnessing that extra horsepower required S&S to upgrade the transmission, clutch and primary work. To clothe the powerful machine, S&S replaced the fairing and lowers and added some Dyna Defender bags. The blue and white striped paint job that finishes off this muscle machine pays homage to the Shelby Cobra.
