Bike Shows at the Big Engine Bar


Badass Builders Roll into Buffalo Chip for Week of Bike Shows

Spot the Sexiest Motorcycles on Display Daily at the Big Engine Bar!

Whether you like ‘em chopped, bobbed, stretched or souped up, the Big Engine Bar at the Buffalo Chip’s CrossRoads is the place to see the baddest bikes during the Sturgis Rally for FREE. Ride into this two (and sometimes three) wheeled wonderland to display your custom creation or walk through and ogle some of the world’s most magnificent machines during the Chip’s many distinctive custom bike shows:

Rat’s Hole Custom Bike Show - This one-day event is the grandrat of all bike shows. The Rat’s Hole brings together an impressive crew of international judges and builders—one group vying for the titles, the other looking to find a bike with personality, function and a progressive sense of motorcycle culture. The show features 16 classes and awards nearly 60 hand-sculpted trophies to its winners.
