At the Chicago Progressive International Motorcycles Show (Feb 8th-10th) Paul Wideman of Bare Knuckle Choppers won the freestyle class in the J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show and scooped the Championship series win for 2013/14.
Wideman took home a cheque for $5,000 with Jon Shipley (of Hoosier Daddy Choppers) taking $3,000 and a Harley-Davidson 120R engine for his win in the Modified Harley class.
Operated by Bob Kay and Jeff Najar’s Biker Pros team, the series concluded at Seattle the following weekend where Urban Custom Cycles took the top prize for that round.
Wideman’s Championship winning bike is a 1940 EL Knucklehead in a handmade frame and front end; the 74 inch engine features shaved and resized flywheels, large port heads and Kibblewhite valves.
Second place in the Freestyle class at Chicago went to Chop Doc Choppers (Ron Harris) for their ‘ol 48’ board tracker.
