Collaborative builds are nothing new in the world of custom bikes, but when it is a collection of students doing the build and that build is good enough to compete in the World Championship of Custom Bike Building then interest is raised.

Student Pride is a 2004 Big Dog that has been completely rebuilt as a custom Bagger by the students at the PowerSport Institute in Ohio. After stripping the bike down to a bare frame the students began a rebuild program, which included the fabrication of a one-off, custom gas tank and modification of a set of hard saddlebags originally designed for use on a H-D.

The build was finished with the help of industry supporters such as Ride Wright Wheels, SuperTrapp, S&S Cycle and Baker Drivetrain.
