Donnie Smith Invitational
March 28-29, St Paul, Minnesota
This year's 28th annual Donnie Smith Invitational Custom Bike Show (now with added cars) is being staged at the Saint Paul River Center, St Paul, Minneapolis, on Saturday March 28th and Sunday March 29th.
Sponsored by mail order parts and accessory retailer Dennis Kirk, the show is said to have the largest attendance of any custom bike industry event in the Midwest, and will see a host of big name guests in attendance with top-class custom bikes competing for a total cash prize fund in excess of $7,500.00.
The show has grown tremendously from its beginnings, and weathered the downturn well - the organizer, Neil Ryan, says that this year it will again comprise over 200,000 square feet of expo center grade indoor show space, with competition classes set to include Custom Baggers, Choppers, retro bobbers and custom cruisers.
