Today Sunday March 20th, 2011 for the fist time ever, the famous Custom Chrome Dealer Show opened its doors to the public. Not only to visit 75 of the V-Twin industry’s leading manufacturers, but also to admire world class custom bikes from top builders and customizers competing in the Custom Chrome International Bike Show Series, North American Championship. Championship is judged by the event’s competitors and a panel of invited VIP guests. Each competitor and VIP judge reviews all the bikes in the competition and ranks their favorites in order. All votes are calculated to decide the North American Champion and each individual class winner. Bikes had to be entered by the builder. At 4 pm winners were called on stage by CCI CEO and President Holger Mohr. And the winners are:
1- Championship Class, Powered by BDL. The Championship Class is the premier class at all Custom Chrome International Bike Show Series events. This class features one off custom bikes, with no strings or rules of design attached. There are no limitations or structure of the entries in this class.
