Art Of The Chopper Press Conference And Exhibition

mad_ratTo all those in Florida before, during and after Daytona Biketoberfest, I remind you that the Art Of The Chopper Exhibition at the Appleton Museum Of Art in Ocala, FL will debut October 10th and will last till January 10th, 2010. On Friday October 9th. I will join “Art Of The Chopper” author and exhibition curator Tom Zimberoff and my fellow Custom Builders Hank Young and Vince Doll for a press conference followed by a VIP Kick Start Party from 4 to 10 pm.

You will be able to view 30 custom motorcycles built as contemporary art and ask us all the questions you always wanted to ask… Of course it’s a biker friendly event with live rock band, food, drinks, motorcycle vendors, auction and preview tour of the exhibition. Tickets available in advance at the museum and on this Web site, and priced at $25 per person or $50 for VIP tickets that include valet, reserved bike parking and the private Kick Party VIP reception. 

I list again by alphabetical order the Builders and custom bikes featured in this exhibition.

    Wonderful exhibit!

    Will try to ride by while in the area for Biketoberfest since Ocala is only an hour west of Daytona.

    Had a chance to get a “sneak peak” at the collection waiting to be unveiled. Very impressive. The supporting photo presentation alone is worth the visit. Graffiti bike is best in show!
