Introducing the SmokeOut Legacy Invitational
The SmokeOut Legacy Invitational Is one of the new features that we will be adding to the rally for 2022. As a way to institutionalize, the builders who blazed the trail through SmokeOut history while providing them with a platform to invite the next generation in.
As SmokeOut originals the veteran builders will have bikes on display throughout the weekend, some of which may be the very bikes that they broke ground with at this very location.
Our initial class of 2022 is not yet complete but includes the likes of Billy Lane, Paul Cox, Jeff Cochran, Bill Dodge, Steve Broyles, Pat Patterson, and Donnie Loos with more being added weekly.
Each of these builders will have the responsibility of selecting a legacy builder of their choosing that they believe will carry the torch. Look for their names to be announced here as the builders complete their selections.
1. OG: Jeff Cochran. – Legacy: Clinton Wallace
Jeff Cochran was one of the pillars of SmokeOut through the years and it is an honor that he has agreed to help kick off this new chapter. He will be displaying a SpeedKing Machine in the Legends Gallery at SmokeOut along side his Legacy Invitation; Clinton Wallace.
Clinton is no slouch either with two Cycle Source covers under his belt and an appearance in the Motorcycles As Art Show at the Buffalo Chip. We will be announcing more builders in the weeks to come, but for now ya better get dem tickets!
2. OG: Billy Lane – Legacy: Xavier Muriel
Who will ever forget Billy Lane rolling Choppers Inc. builds into the gates of the SmokeOut or the Biker Build-off Shows surrounding it all? Well, if you missed it all the first time around, you will have a chance to relive those epic moments this year in Salisbury as Mr. Lane will be featured in the Legends Gallery at SmokeOut along side his Legacy Invitation; Xavier Muriel.
Muriel has been blazing a trail through the custom bike world for the past five years after leaving his tenured position as drummer for the international recording artists Buckcherry. We will be announcing more builders in the weeks to come, but for now ya better get dem tickets!
