Detroit (Brain)- Don and Deb VanCleave once again hosted Michigan’s premier kustom bicycle event - a show that attracts many thousands of visitors every year.  And no wonder, as the quality and variety of bikes continues to increase with every new exhibition.  On hand were a variety of styles and designs; from 3 and 4 wheeled creations to wild choppers made by Hannan Customs from Montreal Canada. Also catching on strong at the show was a trend towards hot-rod and boardtrack style vintage cruisers; and, not to be outdone were examples of classic muscle bikes, and restored balloon tire bikes from yesteryear.

A special award presentation was presented this year in memory of the late Jeff Chapp, who will be remembered as one of Michigan’s all time greatest - and innovative - kustom bicycle fabricators. 

The proud recipient of this year’s “Jeff Chapp Memorial Award” was Don Whitt,  a well known local enthusiast who specializes in kustom machines which  are noted for their unusual designs; as well as non-traditional construction materials.

A big congratulation goes out to Don for being this year’s recipient of the award.
