Biltwell - People's Champ 2022 Custom Bike Show
California based Biltwell has announced Clay Krick, a 22-year-old welding contractor from Lebanon, PA, as the 2022 People's Champ Bike Show winner after he topped online voting among six semi-finalists.

Staged in June at Cook's Corner, the legendary biker bar in Southern California, in addition to the ten-thousand-dollar grand prize provided by People's Champ sponsors, Krick's 1976 Honda CB750 chopper earned a coveted space among the invited builders at The Born-Free Motorcycle Show the Saturday and Sunday after the young customizer's beer-soaked victory.
Organized as always by Biltwell Inc. and presented this year by Modelo beer, The People's Champ Custom Motorcycle Build-Off shines a spotlight on younger and lesser known, but supremely talented motorcycle builders from around the world. 

Clay Krick's handcrafted Honda was a 15-foot-long tour de force and earned the greatest total number of winning votes in the contest's history.
Head-turning features of Krick's record-setting chopper included a six-foot-long rigid girder fork, a gooseneck swingarm frame, a psychedelic paint job, and enough crushed velvet to make Liberace second guess his commitment to flamboyance and excess.
