This weekend folks - Gears and Grit at The Carlise Bike Fest




Come one, come all to Carlisle to enjoy something very unique, an area specific to fans of homebuilt bikes, Café racers, choppers, bobbers, rockers, mods, rat bikes and more. There will be onsite vending catered to the homebuilt crowd, including vintage, new and custom parts. You'll be able to move your parts too within the Bike Fest swap meet. In addition, don't miss out on the great array of live music including country, rockabilly, blues and rock.

Bike Fest wraps Sunday with a Rat Rod Revival and Cruise-In, plus there is a Pinup Girl contest with cash prizes awarded for the top three ladies. All of this fun takes place at Carlisle Bike Fest in 2013. Call 717-243-7855 for more information on swap meet spaces and pricing.
Be there!



CARLISLE, PA – Summer is here and that means your bike has been taken out of the garage and you are actively on the open road. Open air enthusiasts will want to be sure to mark Carlisle Bike Fest on the calendar in 2013. The event runs July 19-21 at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds and offers entertainment and fun for everyone. Bike Fest features live bands, stunt shows, test rides, bike-related vendors and a special ride-in bike show for anyone wishing to have their machine judged.

With the U.S. Army War College close by and the Gettysburg battlefield just down the road, everyone at Carlisle understands, admires and respects the sacrifices every veteran has made for our country. In honor of those who served and those who are still serving, Bike Fest is proud to offer a display of some of the finest military-related bikes around. Onsite enthusiasts can expect an array of vintage military and military tribute bikes in one of Carlisle’s special display buildings. Anyone with interest in entering a bike for display is encouraged to visit www.CarlisleEvents.com or call 717-243-7855. Whether a bike is being shown or admired, everyone is invited to join in a celebration to honor those who put their lives on the line for our nation.

Another unique feature to this year’s Bike Fest is the live build of a café racer by J&B Moto Co. Located in Wrightsville, Pennsylvania, J&B is quickly becoming a well-known name in the café world. Patrons can watch as the J&B crew turns a bin of parts into a café racer right before their eyes! This is a great display for the café fans as well as the gearheads who attend Bike Fest. J&B will also have a vendor booth on the Manufacturers Midway and will be unveiling their finished product Sunday, July 21.

Speaking of the Manufacturers Midway, this is a great location to see some of the top names in the motorcycle hobby. Shop for seats, apparel, parts, accessories and more, often times with vendors offering show specials. Major brands will be represented onsite too as well as custom builders and suppliers for V-Twin and sport bikes. Shopping continues with the Appalachian Harley-Davidson Dealer Mall. The mall is for more than just Harley-Davidson gear and apparel. It also offers a huge selection of pre-owned motorcycles as part of the third annual Bike Fest consignment sale. Bike Fest is also a regular stop on the national circuit for many national and regional vendors providing the opportunity to get you or your bike fitted for parts, supplies and motorcycle-related products. Demo rides will also be a popular hotspot as the top names in the industry bring their two- and three-wheeled best to Carlisle. All demo rides are free with a paid admission; however, anyone riding must possess a proper riding license, wear proper attire and have a helmet.

Sunday wraps the event with the ever-popular Rat Rod Revival, complete with live music. These works of drivable art are an interpretative restoration of bikes or cars, using whatever tools and materials the builder can find. These unique rides will be on display all morning with awards at 2 p.m.

Gabe's Birthday Run to the Wayfarer, Costa Mesa, CA.

The End .... Cheapo Chopoff 2015 (10/10) ... or is it?


The sweet goodbyes from the Cheapo Chopoff...

Until next year happy campers.








Huge thanks again to all the raffle sponsors and Dirty Mikey Radley who donated a case of Moonshine to the mix!!! It was well enjoyed by all (if not remembered).



Puff Little Clouds by Lady Alizon on her very first mini-burnout...



Bigfoot crashes the Cheapo Chopoff! (9/10) BIGFOOT IS REAL!!!


These are the Scientists who were to prove that Bigfoot was real...


Listen close to the audio tapes, not human. You know he's real.



Couldn't be a man in a Gorilla suit, no fucking way~ 







Kicking out the Jams!




Yes, things got slightly stoopid in the woods and we wouldn't have it any other way. You can't fake a Bigfoot can you? No way! This guy is real... 


Cheapo Chopoff Raffle, Dinner, & Swimming Hole'n (8/10)


You know it's a party when you're winning Ghettotooth Tori halter tops and walking the runway!















Good times, without a doubt, one of the best campouts the PNW has ever seen... of course it's the only one I've ever attended (in the PNW), but I'll go ahead and stake that claim. Feel free to disagree, but you've only got yourself to blame if you miss next years CHEAPO CHOPOFF!



The Moto Collective 4th Friday - August 2015 - Part 2

Here are some photos of The Moto Collective's shop.  I love their setup.

The building is broken into stalls specific to each person in the group.  They include a lift and a workbench.  There are also a lot of tools shared by the group.

Here you can see CB Builds' space where he is building copper mufflers for sale here.  This guy ripped it up at Moto Mania and it was really fun to watch.

Outside there is ample parking for people to show up and hang out.  There was a small fire pit too.

Inside a DJ was playing music and a keg (donations accepted) kept everyone hydrated.

The moonrise over the shop was beautiful but photos don't do it justice.

If you missed it, I highly recommend checking out The Moto Collective next 4th Friday bike night on 9/25.

On the way home, I snapped a few photos in front of the Lowry Avenue Bridge.  You can even see the ferris wheel at Betty Danger's in the background.
