The Sturgis Rally can bring in a wide variety of motorcycles, but some of the top ones could be found at a custom show at the Buffalo Chip Thursday.

The Rat's Hole Custom Bike Show is known by motorcycle enthusiasts across the world. They have shows through the United States and in Europe as well, and when you show up at an event like this, you get the chance to look at some unique motorcycles.

Ted Smith from Rat's Hole Custom Bike Show says, "They put their heart and soul in some of these bikes. You'll see bikes well over $80,000 out in this lot, even today."

Krzysztof Bienkiewicz from Game Over Cycles in Poland says, "We brought with us the world's first tattooed motorcycle. The bike was built in 2014, but actually only two weeks ago, we finished the side kart to it. Both of the vehicles are fully tattooed, the side cart both inside and outside. The bike is inspired by the art of body adornment, tattooing in this case. So it's actually covered in leather, and the leather is actually tattooed by three Polish tattoo artists."

For this motorcycle, the owner says it took 3000 hours worth of work to build the bike, and it has 2500 hours in tattooing.
