We were proud to be a part of Ian's build off bike!


A great builder with a wonderful opportunity to showcase his talent, Ian Staudt was chosen for  The Horse Smoke Out in Salisbury, NC. It was a good one! 
Ian did really well at the Horse Smoke Out, and took second place in the build off! First place went Fab Kevin on a HD chassis, so it was an impressive showing for a metric chop! 
Ian & Monica and family were wonderful, the bike turned out superb and we can't say enough about what a great crew Ian had giving him a hand! 
If you are in South Carolina or looking for a top notch shop, check out Ian's, he does primarly HD work but also seems to have a talent for those metrics!
Note: the blue bottle on the side of the bike, was actually the fuel cell wrapped with blue painters tape, the gas tank is a fake and houses all the electroncs, fabulous idea, great clean look!
A very informative and detailed write up on the bike and build, featured in the "Horse" magazine issue #66, March of 07'.
Congratulations Ian and crew!
