Results from the Chicago edition of the J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show

The weekend started with snow and it ended with snow. You would think that bad weather would reduce the number of custom bikes in the show but the allure of $70,000 in cash and prizes delivered over 85 custom sleds.
