Klock Werks Kustom Cycles asked the court to deny Clint Bowyer’s request to dismiss the lawsuit, which claims Bowyer did not pay Klock Werks for a custom motorcycle he ordered in 2008.

Bowyer claims the court has no jurisdiction over the case because none of the dealings in the case took place in South Dakota.

Klock Werks alleges Bowyer failed to pay $30,788.45 for a motorcycle customized by the Mitchell-based company in late 2008 and early 2009. Bowyer claims to have provided Klock Werks with numerous promotional services in exchange for the customized motorcycle.

Klock Werks is seeking to be fully paid for the work, plus 18 percent interest annually since the job was completed, court documents say. In addition, the company is asking Bowyer to pay its attorney fees and other court-related expenses.
