Gettysburg Bike Build Off Returns to Bike Week
Hellion Custom Cycles

This year’s Gettysburg Bike Week motorcycle rally will see the return of the bike build-off contest. Three custom builders will compete in the Gettsyburg Bike Build Off, completing their design-and-builds pre-rally, then displaying them during Gettysburg Bike Week 2015, July 9 – July 12.

“The Gettysburg bike build off is always a crowd favorite,” says event coordinator Kelly Shue. “This year it’s back in style with three top-flight bike builders.”

This year’s 2015 Gettysburg bike build off combatants:

  • Greg Carter and Scott Fisher operate Vicious Cycles, Inc., out of a 3,500-square-foot facility with four service bays and a retail showroom. Carter started the company in 1999, and Fisher joined him in 2005. Fueled by the passion of its two principals, Vicious Cycles has produced some true one-off custom machines and its designs have won various awards and been featured in many magazines.


  • Tom Keefer started Franklin Church Choppers in Dillsburg, PA, ten years ago, and it’s been growing and prospering ever since. Priding himself as an all-around motorcycle specialist, Tom says no job is too big or too small. From routine maintenance to full-on design-and-builds, Tom brings the passion, experience, and expertise of a true motorcycle master. Compelling design. Competitive pricing. Kick-ass craftsmanship. Franklin Church Choppers.


  • Hellion Custom Cycles is veteran owned and operated by Bill Raber. And what better place to run a custom-build bike shop than Mechanicsburg, PA? Custom bikes are Bill’s heart and soul: performance engines, Bagger builds, choppers, bobbers, café racers–you want it? Bill can build it. And don’t forget: all armed service veterans enjoy a ten percent discount at Hellion Custom Cycles.

All of the bike builders will be on hand at Gettysburg Bike Week, July 9 – July 12, 2015, to display their bikes. Rally goers are encouraged to ask them questions, take pictures, and get ideas for their own custom bikes.
