7th Annual David Mann Chopper Fest
A Treat For Chopper Fans
Photos by Bart Mitchell
The inaugural show was held in 2004 just several months after the death of the artist it is named for and his influence carries throughout the show. A David Mann Art Exhibit by Ron Siegel Fine Art showcased many of the artist's works while the entire atmosphere of the show is laid-back in a style only bikers can understand.
This year's custom bike show and builder showcase was held, as always, "on the grass, under the palms, by the beach". Featured builders this year included Russell Mitchell's Exile Cycles, Chica Custom Cycles, Scott Long's Central Coast Cycles Santa Cruz, and Todd Silicato's Todd's Cycle - just to name a few. Row upon row of custom bikes were arrayed for spectators to enjoy and vote on. Accompanying all this were plentiful vendors and a swap meet area with many hard-to-find parts and funky memorabilia.
Bart Mitchell attended and really captured the essence of the day with his photos...
