I am just back from the Long Beach Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show, and I have to tell you, I truly was impressed. There were an incredible number of people thoroughly checking out the custom bikes: taking photos, studying the details and going back and forth to make sure they cast their vote for the most deserving bike. You see, at these shows there is a Mob Rules’ Choice award (aka, People’s Choice), in addition to the official World Championship award voted by the builders’ peers.
In addition, the attitude and support of the builders was second to none.
“This show gave me incredible exposure. The presentation and the way it was run were extremely professional,” stated Paul Cavallo of Spitfire Motorcycles, “and I definitely will be back again next year.”
This was the 4th of the new Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show series, and it appears the International Motorcycle Shows not only are providing great entertainment for their attendees, they are continuing to grow the passion for custom bike building.
