“Las Vegas BikeFest returned once again, showcasing the most innovative and cutting edge aspects of bike building,” said Mindi Cherry, Event Manager for Las Vegas BikeFest.  “There are only a few places where you can immerse yourself in the excitement and uniqueness of this culture.  Las Vegas BikeFest is one of them, which makes it the coolest place to be in the desert. “

Artistry in Iron, the peer-judged, invitation-only custom bike building competition, featured some of the most innovative custom bike building BikeFest has seen yet. With 18 builders gathering from all corners of the U.S., the competition was steeper than it has ever been. Yaniv Evan of Powerplant Choppers in Los Angeles, CA took home the top prize with the bike featured above.

    Mindy Cherry wasn’t lying. The “Artistry in Iron” competition brought out some jaw-dropping creations again this year. But a number of entrants in the Custom Bike Show could easily have held their own in the prestigious “Artistry in Iron” contest. And if all that industrial art wasn’t enough for you, the “Baddest Bagger” competition displayed the eye-popping handy-work of some of America’s most inventive builders. Happily for V-Twin enthusiasts in the south west The Las Vegas Bike Fest has become a Mecca for visionary builders as well as those who appreciate their artistry.

    Congrats to the winners
    this is not a contest where you see a lot of “Easterners” period
    Vegas is a universal destination but hard to get/ride a bike there
