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.

Art's TACO MOTO TUESDSAY Memorial at the V Room, Long Beach










We'll always remember you Art!
{insert the biggest heart emoji in the world here}
So great to see so many people ride out this week in honor of Arturo's memory. We overfilled the bar (thanks to the V Room in Long Beach for allowing us to host this there) and the taco stand across the street! I'll never forget you Art. You were one special dude, and as often as you thanked us for helping you, it was you who was truly our most amazing friend! I'm gonna miss you.

2016 Show Class People's Champ Party at Cook's Corner



A great way to ease into what has become the greatest custom motorcycle show in the country is to spend Friday night at Cook's Corner. Show Class magazine hosts this getdown every year and the six final People's Champ bikes are proudly displayed. Everyone at the party gets to cast a vote for their favorite bike and that builder gets to put his machine on display with the rest of the Invited Builders at Born Free the next day. Chopper democracy, hell yeah! We've been proud sponsors of this since day one and it is always a good time. This year was no slouch and Cook's was packed with neat bikes and rowdy folks. The People's Champ entries were all top notch, the beer was cold, the girls were hot and in the end, Daril Borba made Central California proud with the win.

Drag has also worked closely with S&S, Lowbrow Customs, Baker Drivetrain and others on Biltwell's #MileMuncher project bike making its way to Born-Free. From Bill Bryant at Biltwell;"Drag Specialties is our exclusive distributor in the USA. That means that shops all over the country stock their shelves with our parts and gear that they buy from our friends at Drag. They have a massive catalog, actually several of them, and my favorite is the Old Book that came in real handy on this build. Big things like the BDL clutch system all the way to small commodities like throttle cables, wiring bits and gaskets and seals, Drag had it and ordering was easy."

Taco Moto Tuesday at the V Room tonight in Long Beach, CA.


June 28th 2016 7:00 PM

Tonights TACO MOTO TUESDAY will be held at the V Room in Long Beach (note: the V Room is cash only). Share your stories and memories of Capt. Art with good friends and you can bring in $1 tacos from across the street (La Frida Mexican Grill). There will be a group meeting at PCH and 2nd Street riding to the Bar, otherwise meet us there.

Here's some random pics of Art from the past few years I'll share with you... obviously, he was very special to us, and it just breaks my heart he's gone. To know we lost a great person to a careless truck driver making a left hand turn and not paying attention; please watch out for motorcycles and when you ride, WATCH OUT for cages!

Thank you!


The dust has finally cleared and I would like to give thanks to everyone that visited the booth during Born-Free. Born-Free has created a tug of war within the industry as some dislike it and others love it. I'm with the latter. Born-Free has given me a home to meet fellow members and get others stoked on what ChopCult has to offer.

I was pleasantly surprised to meet over 20 people the we helped through the #chopcultaaa program. Thanks to everyone that stopped what you were doing to help get a stranger back on the road. You rule!


Big thanks to my husband for helping set up, work, and break down the booth. I wouldn't of been able to do it without him. Thanks for EVERYTHING Duane.


I'm sitting on many images from the weekend and will share them here, Facebook, and Instagram. Expect a full feature from Ryan Loughridge soon!




Have a great day,

- See schedule above for things like yard games, Coctagon, Circle of Death, etc.

- Yes, we realize this weekend is Mother's Day. It's the only weekend available, so take momma to lunch the weekend before or bring her along!

- Camping will be free in Ruben's Camp and on the beach for the entire time. We will have more info on booking alternative camping in neighboring palapas and hotels later in the summer.

- We will put out the word when we are ready to talk about sponsorships. It'll be simple, cheap and grass roots like always. Please email mcgoo@biltwellinc.com if you are interested and he'll get back to you once we confirm the details

- Stay tuned to this blog for more info as it develops.

- Get that hunk of shit you call a chopper finished and ready to roll, you've got almost a year to prep!
