 During every Biketoberfest I make sure to attend Willie’s Tropical Tattoo Old School Chopper Show, or die trying...

The show has 20 classes and is sponsored by Bikernet.com, Hot Leathers, Twisted Tea, Blings Cycle, S&S, Church Of Chop, Renegade Magazine and Rue & Ziffra.

There was every kind of bike you can think of from Flatheads with patina and refurbished, to new, to gorgeous custom paint jobs on Knuckleheads, Panheads, Shovelheads, Evos and some imports.

The show runs from 11:00AM until the Awards at 4:00PM with many people showing up early.


 All the proceeds made from this event goes to support our veterans.

 Though the Bike Show was the main feature, out back Jackson Slim put out some good sounds. There was also plenty of food and beverages, including Twisted Tea.

There are numerous T-Shirts that are interesting for one reason or another. And of course, plenty of women.

 

 

Some great news was announced that The SMOKE OUT will be coming back in September 2022!

Chris Callen and the Cycle Source crew were in attendance and hard at work as were numerous other publications.

 
 
 Come show and award time part of the entertainment is MC Roadside Marty who kept the crowd laughing.

 

 While it is always good to see a lot of old friends, this year especially Bill Dodge and Willie, up and about, both still healing from serious injuries from being hit by vehicles while riding their motorcycles.

One day, I'm going to leave work and make the 1.5 mile ride up there and enter my Panhead in the show. I built it with Edward Eisler (Vintage Harley Works) 30+ years ago.

I should say that I was there and helped build it. Edward Eisler actually won one of the Panhead or chopper divisions about 3 years ago. Not sure when it was.

Great show, Great pics and great people....Thank you! Scuba Dave

What’s with the trophy girl? Fake titts way over the top .
I never could figure how people so into real steel could dig on such titt fakery .
