Two motorcycles built by Mitchell Technical Institute students earned second place in their respective classes at the Midwest's largest bike show.

Cory Schulte - a 35-year-old, second-year Power Sports Program student at Mitchell Technical Institute - built a touring bike that was awarded second place in the shovelhead class at the Donnie Smith Bike and Car Show over the weekend in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Other Power Sports students, guided by instructor Chris Degen, built a lightweight motorcycle that earned second place in the sportster class.

Degen said about 20 motorcycles were entered into each division, and about 200 motorcycles were brought to the event, which featured both professional and casual bike builders.

"We were going to be happy if we brought anything home, but to bring second home, that's quite an honor," Degen said.

MTI students have entered the Donnie Smith Bike and Car Show every year since 2008, and Degen said he plans to help his students continue the tradition next year, when the show plans on expanding from two days to four.

The MTI students will enter their sportster into the Moses Bike Show and Benefit on April 8 and 9 at the Ramada Inn Convention Center in Mitchell, Degen said. Schulte's bike may be entered as well.
