International Master Bike Builders Association Donates BIG To The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame
July 31, 2012 –Just in time for the 2012 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum is pleased to launch its brand new electronic Hall of Fame which will be available via touch screen kiosks in the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and also available online at www.sturgishof.com. The electronic Sturgis Hall of Fame has been made possible through a grant from the City of Sturgis and through a partnership with the International Master Bike Builders Association and its President Jeff Starke.
“We’re very excited to be launching this new addition to our museum just in time to have our rally visitors see it,” said Christine Paige Diers, Executive Director of the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame. “IMBBA has been a great partner in getting this project accomplished, and we appreciate all the work that Jeff has put into it – he’s done extensive research to enhance the information we already had on our Hall of Fame inductees.”
The partnership between the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and the International Master Bike Builders Association has been in the works since last year’s rally. Both organizations are confident that the partnership that began then will live far into the future as the organizations continue to grow.
Site creator, IMBBA President Jeff Starke says, “"It gives International Master Bike Builders Association (IMBBA) and its global community of builders and members great pleasure to see the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame website come to life. It is with great honor that IMBBA was selected to undertake this responsibility. I feel these efforts to create the cornerstone of our industry for all future generations to visit and learn of the lives and times of our wonderful motorcycle industry people are truly priceless. I want to thank Christine Paige Diers and Joe Distefano for their unselfish time and efforts that helped us to create this historic virtual reality for all to enjoy.” END
