Cory Ness of Arlen Ness Enterprises designed and created this year’s sweepstakes bike utilizing a 2014 Victory Gunner. The one-of-a-kind low-profile, hot rod features a solid pro-stock rear section, a stout front end, loads of rock ‘n’ roll gold accents and is chock-full of distinctive custom Ness parts.
“I really wanted to give the sweepstakes bike a distinctive look,” says Cory Ness. “Since this is such a special year; the bike had to be awesome.”
“The fans of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip embody our love for music and motorcycles,” said Reid Wilson, Victory Motorcycles Marketing Director. “We want to give them a ride and guitar that embodies engineered perfection and elegant styling and speaks the language of Rock n’ Roll. It’s an honor to award one fan with this ultimate Buffalo Chip keepsake.”
The matching top-of-the-line Epiphone Sheraton II guitar combines perfect semi-hollow body tone with impeccable classic Epiphone styling. Blues legend John Lee Hooker once described the stock model Sheraton II as “an out-did 335,” which makes the beautiful binding, gold hardware, and mother of pearl and abalone inlay on this mahogany and rosewood custom guitar all the more impressive.
Those interested in winning this special prize package can register both at BuffaloChip.com and at participating Rider Friendly Businesses. The Sturgis Buffalo Chip will randomly select eight finalists to appear on its main stage during Victory Motorcycles Night on Wednesday, Aug, 5 where one will be awarded the coveted bike and guitar in front of the thousands of Sturgis Buffalo Chip concert-goers.
