Troy Kyne took a surprising win at the 2011 edition of the Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Chicago Feb. 10-12.
In early February, the 10th Anniversary of the V-Twin Expo in Cincinnati brought about some big news in the V-Twin industry.
One of the biggest announcements regarding customs involved Paul Teutul Jr. of Paul Jr. Designs. The custom chopper builder, and former Orange County Choppers builder, appeared at the V-Twin Expo with Renegade Wheels.
Two new models from Dirico Motorcycles will be launched at the V-Twin Expo in Cincinnati Feb. 5 – 7.
Paul Teutul Jr., owner of Paul Jr. Designs, will use the newly developed "BioKey for Bikes" on an upcoming custom-designed chopper build.
The BioKey for Bikes is a unique fingerprint security product for motorcycles, which will only allow the owner of the motorcycle to start the machine. This system was designed by Hawk Systems, Inc.
Last year some said it couldn’t be done. Others said the idea was too extreme to make it a reality. Ballistic Cycles said, "We’ll just see about that," and built the first ever motorcycle with a 30" front wheel.
International Motorcycle Show
Custom motorcycle builders of all types were out in force at the International Motorcycle Show at Long Beach, California.
The motorcycles on display ranged from a futuristic KTM sport bike to vintage Harley-Davidson’s made into 21st century customs.
One might think the connection between the late Michael Jackson and motorcycles is tenuous, at best.
But, you might have forgotten that the Jackson boys once posed in Life magazine astride a herd of Honda Mini Trail 50 minibikes. So, it’s not completely inaccurate to call the now-deceased King Of Pop a motorcyclist.
