Sturgis Buffalo Chip Student Build Challenge 2013

In 2013 Diamond Fasteners supported the Sturgis Buffalo Chip Student Build Challenge. The Student Build Challenge program offers high school students the opportunity to customize a stock Harley-Davidson Motorcycle with a new body design and paint job. The program allows students to network with industry veterans and is designed to provide students awareness of career opportunities in the motorcycle world.


The student-built bike that Diamond helped sponsor went on to win several awards, including:

  • Top honors in the Full Bagger and Best Display classes at the 2013 Donnie Smith Bike Show in Minneapolis, Minnesota in March.
  • First place in the Full Custom Bagger class and Best Overall Paint in the 2013 Black Hills Motorcycle Show in Rapid City, South Dakota.

Diamond Fasteners’ contribution allowed 100% of the riders’ contributions from the Legends Ride to be donated directly to the Black Hills Special Olympics and Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame.
