NEW STURGIS EVENT Indian & Classic American Iron Black Hills Rally 2015

Are you going to Sturgis this year?

Do you own or love classic motorcycles?

Be at the legendary Buffalo Chip on August 4th. 

Here is a “Save The Date” notification for an event you won’t want to miss.

We at American Iron Magazine are pleased to announce our new event at this year’s Sturgis Rally to celebrate the 75th Black Hills motorcycle gathering. The event started out as a gathering of Indian motorcycle riders and racers when Pappy Hoel, the local Indian dealer in Sturgis, invited his customers and friends to a race and tour of the stunning Black Hills in 1938.

The Sturgis rally has grown quite a bit since then. So we thought it would be appropriate to have an Indian and classic motorcycle rally in Sturgis this year to celebrate the amazing history of this great event.

Produced by American Iron Magazine and Motorcycle Rides & Culture magazine, we invite you to join us at the first Indian & Classic American Iron Black Hills Rally on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 at the Buffalo Chip on the edge of Sturgis, SD.

While the focus will be on Indian motorcycles (old and new), we also welcome all other pre-1984 classic American motorcycles to this free rally. In addition to the bike show, sponsored by Dennis Kirk, there will be a number of free and fun field events including the slow race, plank ride, and balloon toss.

The free Indian & Classic American Iron Black Hills Rally opens at 9 am and field events begin around noon. Trophies will be awarded at 4 pm at the Buffao Chip.

There will be members of the press covering the event and looking for motocycles to photograph and feature in print and on-line. So note the date in your calendar so you won’t miss motorcycle history in the making.

2010 Indian Motorcycle Rally

The 2010 Indian Motorcycle Rally takes place July 17, 2010 10 AM – 4 PM at Hilltop Farm, 1608 Mapleton Ave., Rte 159, Suffield CT (1/2 mile south of MA line and Six Flags New England.)

See dozens of vintage Indians, plus the NEW Indians from Kings Mountain, NC, along with lots of food, vendors and entertainment.

Event Donation: Bikes $20 and Cars $25.

Hilltop Farm was built by George Hendee, co-creator of the Indian motorcycle and founder of Hendee Manufacturing Co., later renamed Indian Motorcycle Co., in nearby Springfield, Mass.

Between 1913 and 1925, George bought up 500 acres of farmland in Suffield, Conn., where he established a gentleman’s country estate including a 20,000 sq. ft. Colonial Revival dairy barn. In 1915, George retired to the farm and raised white leghorn chickens and prize-winning Guernsey cows.

A volunteer nonprofit organization formed in 2002, that is dedicated to preserving the barn, rehabilitating the property and creating a learning center where people can reconnect to the land.

The Indian Motorcycle Rally is one of the fundraisers held each year to raise money for this effort.
