The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame is happy to announce our Youth Build Program and Lonnie's Heart Scholarship Fund. For many years the Museum watched our friends grow a youth build program elsewhere in the community, this year realizing how vital it is to our mission to bring the program in house. 

2019 Build

hIGH school SENIORS from the northern Black Hills were invited to participate in a co-ed Youth Build Program sponsored by the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame. This program was instructed under the leadership of Hall of Fame Inductees, along with local recognized experts in the field of motorcycle parts manufacturing and custom bike builds. The build was "new versus old" with a group of students building a late model motorcycle and the other group BUILDING a 1920's Harley Davidson.


students are the future of motorcycle riding, building, designing, And manufacturing. They are also our future Hall of Fame Inductees. this program allows Students to work together to create outstanding motorcycles while developing and improving their technical and mechanical skills, confidence, and self-esteem.

students are required to have passing grades and must be present at school, like athletic programs, to be eligible for the Youth Build Program. Once students are selected for the program, we will reach out to the counselors at those schools to stay on top of grades and attendance. 

Students who successfully complete the youth build program will be eligible for college scholarships to be used at the institution of their choice. ** APPLICATION DEADLINE // December 20, 2019**
