    Wow! A great source of inspiration for my next project.

    The champion bike Dirty Boot is opening a new style for new builds. Will the Dirt Racer look be the next craze for custom builders?

  6. 6 Joseph talbot Mar 20th, 2011 at 9:56 pm

    Mine would be the Yolo Choppers red bike called Panic. Beautiful.

  7. 7 hddave Mar 20th, 2011 at 10:08 pm

    Some really awesome machines!. Love the bobbers.Cole Foster and the Salinas Boys kill it every time.

  8. 8 Eric Maurer Mar 20th, 2011 at 10:55 pm

    Kemper…. dirt influence is huge on the west coast already and has been for soem time now. Lots of use of Pro Taper bars, dirt tires, and Pro Circuit pipes….. my Softail has a heavily modded 2 into 1 with a shortened FMF Race Can from a CRF450F.

    Love the bikes, nice work!

    ….The Dirty Boot! That was a great show today really glad we went…rainy day and all saw a couple of unique bikes. The one I voted for even won first place today! “Dirty Boot” is really a very unique piece of eye candy! Awesome job Kirk Taylor.

  11. 11 Roberto Mar 21st, 2011 at 8:28 am

    The Dirty Boot (great name) is a very interesting bike. Would like to know more about frame and gas tank used.on this bike.

  12. 12 Larry R Mar 21st, 2011 at 8:33 am

    With such bikes, must have been a great show. What about a east coast show? Working on something pretty cool…

  14. 14 John Gibby Mar 21st, 2011 at 9:28 am

  15. 15 Johny Mar 21st, 2011 at 9:30 am

    Thanks Cyril for this information,…. once again keeping bike people informed about shows and showbikes. I would not know about these events otherwise. I appreciate the pictures of the show bikes placing in their class!

  20. 20 Ken Mar 21st, 2011 at 3:42 pm

    Congrats to Chris McGee and Brian Marion for putting on what I heard was a world class event, I’ll have to make it there next year. All awesome bikes…special congrats to Kirk and Lisa Taylor of Custom Design Studios…two great people who totally deserved to win!

  21. 21 Rob Campbell Mar 21st, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    Congrats to all the builders. Amazing bunch of workmanship and vision, and a wide spectrum of machine expression. I dig your basic old school chopppers, but I can sure appreciate the way these bikes are crafted and developed. Art on wheels.

  22. 22 Neo Dutch Mar 21st, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    Dirty Boot tank is much like the TY series Yamaha’s at the front. The “dirt” look has bee around for a while. Bling’s Cycles are a good proponent of it. Surprised to see the Blue Bobber here. It’s quite an old bike in the custom sense, but very very stylish none the less.

  23. 23 Roadside Marty Mar 21st, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    Evey one of those bikes is a winner!!! Kirk Taylor, Satya Kraus and Chris Richardson are hands down some of the most talented guys out there on the scene today as well as being personable and down to earth..GREAT JOB GUYS!!!! Not taking a thing away from any of the other builders because their work speaks for itself, that Lady Luck Knuckle from L.A. Speed Shop also won the AMD class it was in at Daytona a few weeks ago as I said TALENTED!!!! Roadside Marty

  24. 24 Moore Mar 22nd, 2011 at 8:18 am

    Hats off to all the bikes dirty boots looks like a Bill Dodge knock off sweet tho

  25. 25 Doodah Mar 22nd, 2011 at 8:25 am

    Props to the Dirty Boot bike!!! Very clean!!!! Bill Dodge from would be happy to see that his style has influenced other builders in the industry!!! look outside the norm and open your eyes to a whole new world of custom bikes!!!

  26. 26 nuno maroco Mar 22nd, 2011 at 2:06 pm

    Those bikes are simple incredible, back suspension system of Kraus is bike amazing.

  27. 27 Joey C. Mar 22nd, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    As a dealer, enjoyed very much the event. Had the opportunity to talk and ask questions to manufacturers and most of the customs in the show were great. Saturday evening at the party it was nice to mix with the big guys of the industry. With an extra token, Cyril bought me a glass of red wine and teached me how to sip it slowly. Still preferring beer!

  28. 28 Bobber babe Mar 24th, 2011 at 7:47 am

    Cool bike Kirk .Glad to see Bill Dodge inspirations are still creating the best . I bet he will be stoked when he hears about your win

  29. 29 Flannery Mar 24th, 2011 at 11:08 am

    Nice bikes. Too bad there wasn’t a Bill Dodge aka Bling’s Cycles bike in the running. They may have California style but it’s all Kentucky attitude. The original “dirt” bike style is now Kentucky proud!!!

  30. 30 Dodson Mar 24th, 2011 at 8:43 pm

    I see Bill Dodge all over the Dirty Sneeker bike, I believe Bill Dodge’s was called the Nickeled Knuckle.

  31. 31 Si. Apr 19th, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    The 2nd & 6th, fantastic !!

  32. 32 John K Jul 18th, 2011 at 2:36 pm

    I am bobbin around looking for inspiration for my evo motor and tranny in a rigid frame and ran across these bikes. I love the Blue Bobber it is very clean and functional looking.

    Regarding the “Dirt Bike” I think it pushed me in the direction I have been going all long now. I have decided to finish my rigid out to look like a modern interpretation of the old WLA/WLC military Liberator bikes of WW2. Stay tuned… 🙂
