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.

BEERMUDA TRIANGLE TORRANCE 07.22.20.16

A THREE HOUR TOUR
~ Three Breweries in Three Hours ~
Beermuda Triangle Torrance

There's now enough Breweries in Torrance (and the immediate surrounding cities, and there's even more under construction right now coming...) where we can continue the ridiculously short Beermuda Triangles runs indefinitely and still keep the destinations in rotations where no one get's bored exploring new geometric triangle routes. Really just a chance to meet up with fellow riders and have some beer and conversation outside of the mega-event hustle and bustle. And then there's always that one asshole who say's "I don't like people enough to have conversations with them..." well, too bad, you're welcome too. Everyone's welcome to join Beermuda Triangles or start your own #DIY. These are NON-SEGREGATED functions (unless you're a minor, then your high and dry). I'm sure there's plenty of other beermuda virgin breweries out there just waiting to be ridden hard and put away wet [read: ridden extremely short and put away slightly intoxicated][legal disclaimer: although I'm not encouraging drunk driving, that's extactly why it's only three breweries in three hours, so you have more time to sample and less time to pound off a case of Coors and put yourself and others in danger. That's what overnight campouts are for am I right?]. 

July 22nd Breweries visited;
Scholb (Torrance) ~ Monkish (Torrance) ~ Phantom Carriage (Carson)


12 Breweries with at least 3 more under construction!









I don't know how Vinnie scored a PBR... that's Vinnie!




BMW Airhead Drag Bike by 33 member Dexter

I love when people step away from the norm and build a neat bike. Check out the BMW Airhead Drag Bike thread by Dexter. Dexter, thank you for using the site to showcase your progress! - Lisa


So far I have spent my time in the Sportster Forum on a build thread and while this has progressed I started looking for some ideas for a new project. You know the one just look won't buy anything just yet need to finish........ sound familiar ?

Anyway you already know what happened but here's the back story.... been looking a old BMW's for a while and looked at the growing scene in Europe for Cafe Racers and the like at the same time going to my local Drag Racing meets and thinking i would like to see if i could combine the 2.

Plenty of time doing homework and picked out a old plunger frame as the bike of choice so a R50 / R69 type, looks like they were going to be hard to come by so hatch a plan to buy just a frame and buy parts as they come up, found a frame in USA but missed it as organising shipping turned into a nightmare. It was all looking a bit of a lost cause when chance phone call which coincided with a planned weekend break just came together - the stars must have been aligned just right.-Dexter
 

Thanks!!!

Just wanted to say thanks so much to everyone that came out to (and helped make it happen) Strange Days 6!  Between the wild weather, rocking tunes, crazy characters, and amazing bikes, it was definitely a strange but awesome weekend.  We'll have some coverage and photos up soon.  If anyone has any to share, send em on over to:  dripshovel@gmail.com

Many of you have purchased a tire kit from Burly Brand and received a free ticket for the chance to win their So Cal Tracker. The drawing was postponed until this Saturday due to the recent loss of Burly Brand employee Jim Hogg. Jim helped Sean build the SOCAL Tracker and his untimely death has left a void for the whole Burly Brand crew. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jim's family and friends during this difficult time. RIP Jim.



The winner will be announced this Saturday at LAHD in Anaheim, CA. We'll share the winner's information on the build thread and CC's social media. Best of luck !- Lisa

Stephen "Speed-King" Edgar is one solid dude. I've had the opportunity to talk to him at events and he always seems stoked on life. Fellow contributor Ryan Loughridge penned a great article on Speed-Kings that went live today.

This weekend - Voodoo and Burnt Rubber IV

Presented by 33members Devil Chicken Design & Broken Sprocket Garage

Voodoo & Burnt Rubber is an art, bike, car & music show. As we enter our 4th year of putting on the show we will be moving VBR to SPACE in 2016. The event will be held on Saturday, July 23rd. While our time at Broken Sprocket Garage has been great, we have outgrown the garage space. Don't worry, Dave and Broken Sprocket will continue on with everything he does to make this event what it is. In fact, Dave is working on a complete custom build to be raffled off at VBR IV! One lucky attendee will be riding off on a full custom build. Keep your eyes peeled for updates on Instagram and this site.- Chris
