“We are very excited to bring a high-level showcase of custom motorcycles together during the premium industry trade show,” said Kevin Dunworth, who will be one of the judges for Shop Builders Invitational at AIMExpo. “To be able to exhibit current custom trends to industry decision-makers and attendees is a honor in and of itself, and giving away a new S&S engine to one of the builders is the icing on the cake.”

With a new S&S T111 Black Edition Long Block from S&S Cycle as the grand prize, the top bikes and their owners will be invited to showcase their builds in The Shop at AIMExpo. A winner will be chosen at the show by industry icons including Rod Woodruff, CEO, Sturgis Buffalo Chip, Iron Trader News Editor Marilyn Stemp, Dave Zemla of S&S Cycle and Dunworth of Dunworth Customs. Judging will encompass everything from the overall design, aesthetics and style to the builder’s skill and ingenuity in terms of fabrication and welding, rideability, customization and engine modifications.

With the North American Powersports Industry gathering in Columbus for AIMExpo presented by Nationwide, The Shop Builders Invitational offers an unrivaled opportunity for bike builders to get their work in front of some of the most important and influential people in the industry. It’s their opportunity to represent American custom motorcycle culture.
