Lets take a look at our friends at Hot Bike’s Invitational Bike Build-Off. We had a blast with our builders for the Baggers Invitational Build-Off throughout the week. Of course we had John Shope take home the trophy making him the back to back winner! Hot Bike had some great builders that churned out some stunning bikes as well. They were all great guys just happy to be involved in the Tour.

The builder Scott Kietzmann of Conquest Customs won the coveted ring day 5 in Billings, MT with his gorgeous 2005 Victory Hammer 100 named Super Bee. It is a beautiful yellow and red, but having it supercharged by Lloydz Motorworks you better look fast because its hard to get a good look as its ripping by you. This thing puts down 174hp and topped out on the 1/8th mile track at 120.10 MPH. Scott took the title, but it was definitely no cake walk for him. He had some stout competition.

Mike Rabideau, of Majik Mike’s Designs, was last years champion and it was looking as if he was on track to repeat as well. He took the votes the first night as well as night two. His build was nothing short of stunning. He brought his A game with a gorgeous deep purple Shadow Shovel Head. The paint looked black from a distance but as you walked up on it you could see the subtle pearl purple integrated perfectly. It is a 1933 Harley-Davidson VL frame with springer front end. It has a 1981 Shovel head squeezed in it. It was a gorgeous bike, but ultimately the people were heard loud and clear that they wanted Scott Kietzmann to be dubbed the new champion.
