One major event among all those proposed during Las Vegas BikeFest, and for me one of the most interesting, is Artistry In Iron, a bike display and competition between some of the best well known custom builders and those soon to be.
The bike show is setup inside the Cashman Center in a pleasant air conditioned setting. Following a daily schedule displayed at the show entrance, the public is able to meet, get photo opportunities, get an autograph and spend time with each of the 20 participating builders.
The 9th Annual Artistry In Iron champion will be selected by his peers. Chris Richardson from LA Speed Shop is back this year to defend his 2011 title with a new custom bike. More info with list of builders at Las Vegas Bikefest Artistry In Iron Championship.
