'Shop Builders Invitational' Custom Bike Contest
In partnership with S&S Cycle, AIMExpo Presented by Nationwide has announced the 2019 'Shop Builders' Invitational' - "a custom bike contest open to all bike builders, from the weekend warrior to the seasoned pro."
Slated for the 'Shop Neighborhood Hangout' at AIMExpo, one of three sector focussed specialty exhibition zones (September 26-29, 2019 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio), "builders of all levels and styles are welcome to apply for the contest, highlighting the world of custom motorcycles at North America's most important industry gathering.
"Custom builders are a big part of the current motorcycle market and truly represent a community built on passion. As we work to bring the industry together, it's important that we recognize the custom community and the artistry and craftsmanship they contribute to the Powersports Industry. We're proud to be able to work with some of the best builders in the country and provide a platform that allows them to showcase their work and connect them to the industry," said Andre Albert, Marketing Director, MIC Events.
S&S Cycle is putting up a T111 Black Edition Long Block motorcycle engine as the grand prize.
"The Shop, a new neighborhood hangout and feature on the show floor at AIMExpo presented by Nationwide, celebrates the lifestyle of the V-twin/Cruiser/custom community and the passion that fuels this culture. In addition to The Shop Builders Invitational, it will also feature 'Shop Talks' - an area for engaging discussions, new product showcases, great music and specialty concessions including local craft beers and artisan coffee."
