Easyriders Bike Show 2014 Anaheim

It is January and for custom bike builders and those that enjoy looking at custom bikes that means that the 2014 Easyriders Bike Show Tour is now underway. The first stop for the tour was Saturday, January 4 at the Anaheim Convention Center. I have been attending various Easyriders events as a participant or spectator since the mid-80’s and while there are definitely bikes that show up in the show year after year, it is interesting to watch the evolution of motorcycle building. Huge front wheels, etched chrome and amazing paint jobs seemed to be the theme in recent years with front wheels seemingly getting taller and fatter every year.

In addition to the motorcycle viewing and vendors providing everything from beef jerky to eternal salvation (yeah, you may have to look at the photos to get that one). For entertainment there was a dance routine performed by the Purrfect Angelz, a fashion show and live music. For the bike show, there were two classes for the judging of bikes with the People’s Choice being voted on by attendees and the Judged Class being chosen by Easyriders Magazine editors.

Next week the tour moves up north to Sacramento which will be a two day event and is usually huge in comparison to Anaheim. From Sacramento the tour moves to Charlotte, NC; followed by Nashville, TN and Columbus, OH in February. You can get full details on the Easyriders Events page. Continue reading

Photos from the Solvang Motorcycle Museum

These photos are from the Solvang Vintage Motorcycle Museum, located in Solvang, CA. Although I was aware that this museum existed, this was my first visit there. It was never convenient on prior visits. Their hours are set up around the fact that Solvang is a tourist town. As I recall the museum opened at 11 AM on Saturday and Sunday. I do not recall their weekday hours. Anyway, I am really glad I stopped by. I am pretty familiar with antique motorcycles and feel confident that I have at least heard of most makes and models, however, this collection had several models I was unfamiliar with. This includes Mars, Rudge and The James. All very cool bikes.

They say they switch the bikes out, so I guess I will have to stop by again and see what else they have picked up.
