2013 will see the revival of The Hollister Rally, California “The Birthplace Of The American Biker.” The word Hollister has been synonymous with California motorcycle rallies for decades. It secured its place in pop culture from the 1954 film “The Wild One” with Marlon Brando, which is based on the 1947 rally. The free motorcycle and street music festival (30 bands on 4 stages) will feature demo rides, vendors, a food festival, a vintage and Cafe Racer ride-in show, poker runs, bike games, the Ace Cafe Beer Garden, etc.
Biker Pros will also produce the Hollister AMD Qualifier Custom Bike Show on Saturday July 6. Biker Pros is the North American Bureau for American Motorcycle Dealer (AMD) and produces affiliate shows across the United States. The winner of the FreeStyle class in Hollister receives an automatic bid to the AMD Invitational Custom Bike Show at the Harley-Davidson 110th Anniversary Celebration. The winner then has the opportunity to attend the AMD World Championship in Germany by winning the FreeStyle class and becoming the TEAM USA representative.
The show presents six classes including FreeStyle, MOD Harley, Radical Bagger, Performance Customs, MOD Street and Retro MOD. A total of $7,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to the class winners. Professional and amateur custom builders of choppers, cruisers, bobbers, baggers and race bikes are invited to enter their bikes into the competition and judge each other’s work.
