Las Vegas BikeFest® 2017 Rally Recap

2018 LAS VEGAS BIKEFEST LOGOLAS VEGAS: More than 30,000 bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts from nearly all 50 states and 12 other countries cruised into town for the 17th Annual Las Vegas BikeFest, October 5-8. The rally was four action-packed days filled with entertainment, contests, bike shows, MMA fights, Uncle Kracker performing live, and demo rides from Indian Motorcycles. With the addition of Rally West, located on 3rd and Fremont Street, attendees had even more options for shopping for the latest in motorcycle parts and accessories, apparel, and more.

1“Our goal every year is to continue to keep the rally growing and the activities and entertainment “fresh”. With the new locations we chose for our poker runs, bringing the Tuff-N-Uff Amateur MMA fight, expanding our vendor area to Rally West, giving away $5,000 in shopping sprees and more bike shows, we feel we accomplished that”, states Mindi Cherry, Event Manager.

2Music filled the rally all four days with over 30 live bands playing- everything from hard rock, blues, punk, country and more. Continue reading Las Vegas BikeFest® 2017 Rally Recap

Tim Dixon’s Gas Axe Custom Takes Top Honors

Next stop: Germany

There’s nothing easy about competing at the Championship of the America’s (COTA) show during AIMExpo. Maybe that’s what makes winning it so sweet!

COTA is arguably North America’s premier custom bike competition, serving as the ultimate showcase of the country’s finest builders. Adding to the prestige is the show’s distinction as an automatic qualifier for the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building, which takes place at the Intermot Bike Fair in Cologne, Germany, every other year.

This year a total of 31 bikes entered COTA during AIMExpo in Columbus, Ohio, 9/21-24. Winners were determined by peer judging in four different classes; Free Style, Performance Custom, Retro Custom, and Street Custom. AIMExpo attendees voted for a People’s Choice winner.IMG_6212

Taking first in Free Style was Tim Dixon of Gas Axe Chop Shop in Ten Mile, Tennessee, with his 1959 Panhead custom called “Pennie Lane.” Innovations include Halibrand Magnesium dragster wheels, a handbuilt leaf spring-style suspension made from Ford Model A components, copper oil tank and intake, and dozens of hand-fabricated brass and copper pieces. A master welder and fabricator, Dixon’s ability is apparent. The award is much deserved; Dixon will travel to Intermot 2018 in pursuit of the world championship.IMG_6215

The People’s Choice winner was the BMW Alpha built by Salt Lake City machinist Mark Atkinson, and inspired by a concept created by Turkish designer Mehmet Doruk Erdem.

Images & Article by Jack McIntyreINDIAN LARRY BLOCKPARTY 2017-5-3September 16, 2017: So what did we do today? Took off from Philly at 05:00 and arrived in Brooklyn NY bright and early for the set up of the Indian Larry Motorcycle Grease Monkey Block Party, 2017. This is an example of one of the greatest dedications of fans of the brand Indian Larry, and the generosity of all involved to continually donate to the Aidan Jack Seeger Foundation. INDIAN LARRY BLOCKPARTY 2017-3I walked the event shooting pics & talking with friends & visitors, and the event , as always, provided entertainment from one end to the other as seen in my images below. Motorcycles lined the surrounding streets, with a mix of custom cars, FXR stunt shows, music all day / night, and more. Enjoy the images, visit the Aidan has a Posse website if you can to donate & learn, and come to the party on 2018!
