J&P Cycles say their Anamosa, Iowa location will become the largest motorcycle aftermarket store in the world during the weekend of June 24-25, 2017 as the J&P Cycles Iowa Rally celebrates its 38th anniversary by becoming the site of Hot Bike Magazine's National Garage Build-Off for custom motorcycles.
The competition is expected to draw the nation's top garage-built custom bikes competing for $3,000 and an invitation to the annual Hot Bike Tour, where their motorcycle will go up against famous builders in the Invitational Build-Off.
Located at J&P Cycles' original store, the free rally includes motocross stunt shows from Cowboy Kenny's Steel Rodeo Tour, live music throughout the weekend, food, beer and opportunities to support Camp Courageous, a camp for kids and adults with disabilities.
In conjunction with the rally, the National Motorcycle Museum is opening a new exhibit, Dirt Riding in America. Located near the rally in Anamosa, visitors will be among the first to experience the exhibit and will see more than 450 vintage bikes on display in the museum's permanent collection.
The Iowa Rally is a chance for riders to get up-close and personal with reps from more than 50 companies offering motorcycling products. It's a chance to see the newest motorcycle accessories, and ask questions to experts from companies like Vance & Hines, Kuryakyn, Dunlop, Klock Werks, Metzeler, Mustang Seats, Rinehart Racing, and many more. Riders can even have selected parts installed on their bikes on site.
