If you are a collector, or very interested in purchasing one of these unique bicycles please let us know in your RSVP as we will be having a special early showing for seriously interested buyers.

Last years “Hot Bike” contest was such a success that we will be throwing another one this year. We will have categories such as: Best Paint Job, Most Aero, Most Original, and Best Vintage Style. Bring your hottest bike as long as you didn’t place in last years competition. This years judging will be by attendees of the show so everyone can vote!
