    It seems at Daytona a chopper can win, at Sturgis more likely a boardtarcker.

    The Panhead bobber with the apes and springer is very good.

  3. 3 Jeff Keizer Mar 19th, 2014 at 11:17 am

    The top one. Huh. Not for me. The others are fine.

    that silver thing is another trailer queen big ass rear tired pile………how dreary this stuff has become.

    Not one Café Racer.That tells me this show is unloved and out of fashion with any rider under thirty.

    The builder of the winning bike has probably run out of skin for ink and the bike now cops all his fevered hyperactivity.

    Opinions are Ike rectums, everybody has one!

    Builders seem to be running out of ideas by looking at the selected photos.
    Would have been nice to see the top winners from the other classes.

    one question…..

    how can a 2012 Streetglide be 3rd place in the “Radical Evo” Class?

    I was there when the awards were given out, and this is simply evidence that those judging and or running the show have little to no interest in actually giving a crap about the entries.

    Just pay the money and wait till 4:00 pm for the awards then leave till next year.

    I did not have a bike in this show….just a quiet observer this time around….

    Get your shit together guys or there won’t be many entries in the years to come I can promise you that…

    Yep, agree with most comments: Utterly crap, tacky or bling, and wholly devoid of interest 🙁 …

    Hey Jeff Duval, Maybe you can explain to me the utterly crap, tacky and bling on the shovelhead, ironhead, and the knucklehead because I am a little confused. Maybe next year you can put a bike in the show and see what ” BLING” you build. By the way I built the shovelhead in the picture and I ride it.

    jack deagazio,and a good Shovel it is too.I thought it was a Panhead at first glance.

    Almost every bike entered deserved to win a trophy. Unfortunately, there were only 57 trophies.

    That “best of show” bike is a good example of the worst custom bikes. Huge non-functional rear tire, blinding chrome. lots of extra bodywork with no purpose, glittery paint that only a pre-teen girl could love, noise-making shorty exhaust…… Yecchhh!
