Easyriders® V-Twin Bike Show Tour has it all.
This is no run-of-the-mill motorcycle show. When the Easyriders® V-Twin Bike Show Tour revs into Centennial Hall at Fair Park on April 21, every biker has got to get a look. This is where they all hang out: choppers, street customs, radicals, vintage, you name it!
Get in on more than 100 of the best of the BEST custom-built motorcycles in the world, plus hundreds of motorcycle-related gear and service vendors.
World class creations include:
- Radical bikes that are really out-there…some with off-the-wall sheet metal designs and outrageously long front ends.
- Street Custom bikes. These are highly customized motorcycles with wild paint jobs, constructed from a custom frame instead of a stock frame.
- Choppers. Low-to-the-ground, streamlined bikes on a cruiser-style frame with custom-designed gas tanks and wide rear tires. Often have wild paint jobs.
- Vintage or Old School. Antique bikes that are restored or new bikes replicated to look like old school. Often have high-rise handlebars and teardrop tanks.
- Specialty Class. Made for special occasion riding, like Bar Hoppers, side cars and trikes are more examples.
- Modified Stock. Factory bikes with modifications that advance them to the custom bike level. These bikes include custom baggers and custom antique.
Says Competition Coordinator and Master of Ceremonies Bruce Henderson of Easyriders Events, “This is all part of the largest bike show in the world. “It’s not only THE place to get a load of the hottest bikes you’ll ever lay your eyes on, but an amazing competition unlike anything else.”
Top custom creations and builders compete at each of 12 regional bike shows for the right to advance to the Easyriders® Invitations Bike Show in Kansas City, Missouri. Here, they vie for Best of the Best honors, along with thousands of dollars in cash and prizes. “This adds up to over 2,000 bikes that will have competed by the end of the tour,” adds Mr. Henderson.
An all-new Pro Class competition at each show holds even more vroom for master builders who compete for one of six places on the 2008 Easyriders® Centerfold Tour. “It’s not about one bike but the whole shop or builder,” says Mr. Henderson. “It’s an astounding opportunity because these builders get incredible national exposure at each show we do in 2008.” Centerfold builders include Kendall Johnson of Kendall Johnson Customers and Paul Yaffe of Paul Yaffe Originals.
