For those who read the article I wrote last month entitled Biker Build-Off Winners at Shawnee Cycle Plaza - Shawnee, Kansas, you may recognize this beautiful Honda Fury as the winning bike from the Biker Build-Off Team Building at Shawnee Cycle Plaza.

You may also recall that back in November 2014, the management and employees at Shawnee Cycle Plaza drew names out of a hat, and divided into three groups for a fun team building exercise. Each team was given a stock motorcycle off the showroom floor, along with a budget of $2,500 (retail value) per team. The bikes were a red 2013 Honda Fury, a green and black 2014 Kawasaki Ninja ZX14, and a red and black 2015 Victory Cross Country. They had until Monday, December 22, 2014 to customize their motorcycle in an attempt to beat their competition. Along with a great sense of pride, the winning team members would each receive a paid day off. Plus, since all three bikes would be put up for sale, the team whose bike sells first will receive $50 each.

Below are the specs for this incredible bike, which was designed and customized by Key Gay, Jerry Nicholson, Mike Sarver, Nick Skillett, & Lukas Shearer. Below the stock specs, is a list of all customized specs for this bike. This one-of-a-kind motorcycle is now for sale, so make sure to hurry over to Shawnee Cycle Plaza, and ride it home today!
