King of Customs Motorcycle Show This Weekend!
What’s up HUB heads-
If you’re in the Pacific Northwest area this weekend, you don’t want to miss the debut of the 2008 King of Customs motorcycle show up in Calgary.
This event has all the makings of one wild weekend featuring hundreds of custom bikes, cars, tattoo artists, live music, cool vendors, custom culture “fashion shows” and plenty of cold beverages to go ‘round.
I’ll be talking with some of the top custom bike builders in the country including my so-cal compadre Jesse James of West Coast Choppers. I’ll also be making the rounds catching up with some of the people making noise and getting attention at the show.
If you make it to the show, stop me and say hey to a fellow Hub Head. Also be sure to snap some pics and post them in your garage on the Hub. If you can’t make it, be sure to stayed tuned to the Hub for my pics and video coverage from the show.
Hope to see ya there,
