We thought we'd do an overnighter in August and coincide it with the Havey Bay Bike and Hot Rod Show at Fraser Lakes Golf Club.
Even though we left the shop early we still got up a little late. I get the blame for this most times but can't be "just" me surely?? Eric still managed to get Top Custom trophy, we swear the judge was one of his neighbours!!!
July 4th, plenty of sunshine and the best American Custom/Production Bikes on the Planet! Yep, top way to spend American Independence Day, not just your average Sunday. The roads of the Maleny Range, Peachester, Woodford, Mt Mee, The Samford Valley and the classic old D’aguilar and Dayboro Hotels. Just a good day had by all.
A recent trip to America in late Feb was a good one for a lot of reasons...
A mate from VIC came with me to have a look at the Big Bear Factory, meet the team there and help with the final touches on a bike that Kevin is building for him. We stayed down the mountain for the first couple of days as Kevin was still returning from a dealer party in Texas. We took this time to visit with Seth from Aggressive Designs so Russell could discuss the paint theme with him. Seth tried to sell his customized '69 Camaro while we were there. Good car but getting it registered here would have been a problem.
We headed up the mountain about Tuesday, blew me away the first time, still does this sort of country so close to LA
Ric's Diner and Garage in Palmwoods let us put some bikes on display when the Great South East came to film.
Bikes getting ready for their cameo appearance in front of Ric's Diner in Palmwoods. The big 'bikers?' often pull up for a feed, filming day was no exception. Big thanks to Ric for giving us a plug in his spot on the Great South East!
The PCYC show is just a good old local show, it's a good ride there and home.
The turn out was more than expected and sun was out all day, more of a car show than bike but there was good numbers of bikes entered. Thanks to Mike from Vic for dropping in with his Sled and Jeff for coming over with his Venom, though Jeff never needs an excuse to get out on his bike.
Five Big Bear Choppers were invited by Ultimate Choppers to join and display bikes on their stand in on the Goldcoast Bike Week.
We didn't trail them down, we rode them into the event! Chuck from Oz Bike was later telling us at the bar that we got a standing applause from the crowd as they are not used to seeing custom bikes being ridden in. They were then put the bikes on display for the afternoon.
