New! – Hard Knocks Custom

We have added a long over due bike category this year.  It is a show that you do not even have to enter and the prizes are awesome.

For years I have noticed a type of bike I really enjoy seeing at the Smoke Out but there has not been a way to recognize these bikes at the event.  This bike is just a reliable daily rider that keeps you moving while you build your dream-bike-rigid chopper.  Stuff gradually wears out as time, and clicks on the odometer, go by.  The bike keeps getting upgrades when stuff wears out.  You find some good used parts that are not exactly for the year and model you have but with some fabrication you make it work.  The bike goes down once and gets different tins.  After ten, fifteen or more years you look at the bike and realize a lot of the bike has been upgraded.  It is far from stock.  This bike has stories to tell.  It eventually gets some new paint or maybe a few engraved pieces.  It is a bike that has been customized through need.  Customized as a result of hard knocks.

We plan to recognize some Hard Knocks customs at the event this year.  Here is what we are looking for:

  • Minimum of 10 years old (50,000 miles)
  • A bike that has kept up with performance upgrades, engine, brakes, etc.
  • Personality
  • Some fabrication
  • Not so much a planned custom build, as much as an evolution

Obviously, this is a difficult “show” to judge.  The judge has to be very knowledgeable about what the original bike looked like, and the problems associated with specific models, by year.  We have brought in a hired gun, a verified expert.  Biker’s Choice is sending Aaron Whitney.  Biker’s Choice has also stepped up with some great prizes including engraved knives from Benchmade.  We would like to shoot a Hard Knocks custom for a possible future article.

If you have a like we might be interested in please park it in the area roped next to the Professional Chop Off bikes on the event grounds on Saturday from 11 am to 1 pm.  If Aaron Whitney leaves a business card on your bike (regardless of where it is parked), please call him right away.
