Ron Finch has been building choppers since 1965, when he opened Finch’s Custom Styled Cycles, and has established himself as one of the premier builders of our time. A fusion of function and whimsy, Finch’s innovative motorcycles are truly “art in motion.” His bikes have been appreciated by art lovers in several museums and art galleries and in shows throughout the United States and Europe.

According to Milwaukee Art Museum, the Bikes by a Discovery Channel 2004 Biker Build-Off champion will roll into downtown for the presentation during Harley Davidson’s 105th Anniversary Celebration.
Coupled with the archival photographs of Detroit biker Jim “Flash” Miteff, the exhibition celebrates the customized motorcycle as an American icon of 1960s counter-culture and a pinnacle of artistic design. Visitors can park their bikes beneath the wings to see it during extended hours Thursday–Saturday, August 28–30, when the Museum is open 10 a.m.–8 p.m.
