2022 Legends Ride Auction Info
Custom Harley-Davidson Road Glide by Arlen Ness Motorcycles
The highlight of each year’s Legends Ride festivities in Deadwood is the special live custom motorcycle and art auction. This year’s auction features the truly unique race-inspired performance bagger by famed customizers Cory and Zach Ness. The stock Road Glide model, sponsored by Black Hills-Harley Davidson, includes a wide array of performance upgrades.
The Ness Road Glide is the first bike showcasing the new line of Performance Bagger products from Arlen Ness Motorcycles. Ness added extra horsepower to the Milwaukee-Eight powerplant in the form of a gold Ness Method air cleaner and a Vance & Hines stainless 2-into-1 Hi-Output racing exhaust.
The build features the new Pro Short fender, Legend Suspension, Ness Method fork legs with integrated fork brace and the wild gold anodized Ness Y Spoke wheels–the lightest wheels in the Arlen Ness Motorcycles collection.
Also up front, you’ll find Method billet triple trees, billet risers and gauge back. This new set up puts your gauges in the perfect position to see your screen, while the LaPera Daytona seat puts you in the perfect position for performance riding.
Eye-catching Ness gold anodized floorboards, pegs, shift lever and derby cover, along with a stunning paint job from Riff Raff Customs complete the distinctive look of the bagger.

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.
