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.

Dice Issue 59/Biltwell Limited Edition Sissy Bar Bag.










Dice issue 59, The Biltwell issue, is nearly upon us and to celebrate we asked the Biltwell boys to design and manufacture 50 items that we can sell as limited editions with this issue. Bill had been wanting to do a small-scale traditional seabag, but with a couple extra features like Molle webbing that would be easy to attach to just about any sissy bar. He sketched up the dimensions, picked up a couple full-size seabags and headed to Duane Ballard's where he built the first prototype. That bag got a little six hundred or so mile shakedown and Bill learned a few things and made some modifications. Their vest guy in Los Angeles custom-dyed a lot of 100% cotton 18 oz. duck canvas and stitched 'em up. Bill and McGoo hand tied the closures and installed the brass snap links. The finished bags were then dashed over to their screen printer where the underside of each bag's lid got a little artwork and serial number added. The volume of most bags or luggage is usually measured in litres, but we thought it would be more fitting to use cans of beer since more of our customers would probably identify with that. This bag fits 36 Coors originals perfectly, hence the name EXFIL-36. Got a little extra stuff? clip it on to the Molle straps on the side or add modular ammo pouches, etc. This bag is only available with DicE issue #59 and will go on sale in our online store on Monday morning, December 22nd at 9am PST (California time). Once we sell those 50 bags that's it, there will be no more. All successful purchases will be shipped on Monday December 29th.
