Cleveland – Bikers, bike builders and Lincoln Electric will roll into the 71st Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Aug. 8-14, in Sturgis, S.D. During the event, bike enthusiasts will have plenty to see at Lincoln Electric’s on-site tent (Tent 11) in the Community Center Expo Lot on Lazelle Street. Highlights throughout the week will range from welding demos and discussions to meet-and-greet sessions with a variety of celebrity bike builders.

Lincoln Electric’s Mobile Demonstration Unit (MDU) truck will be used to power the company’s POWER MIG®, Precision TIG® welders and Tomahawk® plasma cutting systems units for various product demos offered all day long throughout the week.
“This is Lincoln’s first appearance at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. We are excited to participate in the most-talked-about bike event of the year and look forward to meeting bikers and fabricators from all over North America to discuss their welding projects,” said Scott Skrjanc, Lincoln Electric’s Tradeshow Events Manager. “We have a lot of fun planned for the week, including visits from some of the custom bike builders that have used Lincoln Electric equipment for years.”
On Aug. 10 from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m., Bryan Fuller, host of SPEED Channel’s “Two Guys Garage®, is having a party for the release of his new book, Full-Bore Sheet Metal, the first in a series of custom fabrication “how-to” books written by shop guys, for shop guys.
After the book release, Fuller and Lincoln Electric will co-host a premier viewing of the HD Theater network series “Café Racer TV.” Throughout four episodes, this season, Bryan will be featured as he modifies a 1969 CB 750 Honda® motorcycle, inspired by his hot rod roots. This bike, along with several other Fuller bikes, will be on site during the viewing event.
Attendees also will have access to show special pricing on Lincoln Electric equipment, VIKING™ auto-darkening welding helmets and Red Line™ welding apparel. As a bonus, Lincoln Electric is offering attendees the chance to win a POWER MIG® 140C welder and VIKING™ auto-darkening helmets to those who enter the drawing while at the viewing event.
