Also featured: the unveiling of the 2022 Tiny Strider Customs!

In 2018, when the Breakfast added the feature of Tiny Custom Strider Bikes built by renowned builders, it caught industry attention all the way to the prominent Mecum Auction in Las Vegas.

Plucked from a waiting list of builders who want to participate, the 2022 Class includes: Zach Ness, Cabana Dan Rognsvoog, Rodney Smith, Arlin Fatland, SPacEY, and Greg “Edge” Scheuer.

Stock Strider Bikes were sent to the Builders by Strider Sports International, manufacturer of balance bikes that inspire kids to ride. The resulting customs will be unveiled at the Flying Piston Breakfast and displayed at the Biker Belles Celebration and Sturgis Motorcycle
Museum Hall of Fame induction during rally week.
