Kustom Kulture Artisan Show at the Cherokee Blue Ridge Run
The Kustom Kulture Artisan Show is an extreme artisan show produced by Biker Pros for the Cherokee Blue Ridge Run (blueridgerun.com) with some $23,000 of awards on offer.
The 3-day event is scheduled for September 8th -10th in the North Carolina mountains and promises “great riding, great music and plenty of cool stuff,” says custom show organizer Jeff Najar.
“The Kustom Kulture Artisan Show will be an extravaganza of sights and sounds. Enthusiasts will be able to experience what it takes to build a custom bike from metal work to leather work and try their hand at numerous disciplines including pinstriping. A hands-on skills workshop display called ‘Grease + Gears’ will add to the experience.”
Hosted at the Cherokee Fairgrounds Display Hall, where competitors are competing for the largest payout on the East Coast in three classes, with FreeStyle paying through six places. More cash and trophies will be awarded for Best Chopper, Best Bagger, Best Cafe Racer, Best FXR/Dyna and People’s Choice.
“Showcasing custom motorcycles, providing a platform for builders to show their skills and get together with other enthusiasts, is what it’s all about! It’ll be a fun weekend,” said Mark Cresswell, Rally Director.
The FreeStyle winner receives an additional $2,000 to compete in the Championship of the Americas at AIMExpo in Ohio. If they win there, the bike and owner receives a trip to Germany for the AMD World Championship.
“The Kustom Kulture Artisan Show highlights builders who create exceptional builds, from low cost “less is more” customs to one-off, multi-year “big buck” projects that can take years to complete,” explained Bob Kay, Biker Pros Partner.
