Coming Event: 8th Annual David Mann Chopperfest


If you live in California and you can still throw a leg over your hand-built death trap after last month's Thanksgiving feast, cruise to the Ventura County Fairgrounds this Sunday for the eighth annual David Mann Chopperfest. One of America's premier motorcycle shows and swap meets manages to outdo itself every year, and this weekend's event is sure to deliver on that tradition.

For anyone unfamiliar with the amazing life and untimely death of artist and biker David Mann, here's a history of this philanthropic event we culled from the website:

The history of Chopperfest in Ventura California is really a snapshot of America at its finest. Real people who think outside the box and who can translate those thoughts into visual beauty both functional and artistic. Originally the brainchild of David "Huggie" Hansen, Chopperfest became much more than a showcase for futuristic motorcycle design when famed artist David Mann died September, 2004.

The grief felt by the entire two-wheeled world found expression as those who loved and respected David lined the stage with Dave's widow at the first Chopperfest just three months after his death. The love for both the "artist" and the "lifestyle" he envisioned blended perfectly through a huge showing of his original art and an equally huge showcase of custom motorcycles.

Bike builders from across the nation came to both honor David Mann at his passing and welcome the birth of his signature event. Chopperfest is forever dedicated to the design, function and art of the motorcycle through those talented enough to create and those creative enough to appreciate talent.

If you come to Chopperfest this weekend, please visit us at the ChopCult booth directly across from the bike show area. There will be free stickers and sodas while supplies last.

Here are some photos from the 7th Annual David Mann Chopperfest in 2010:
