Al Petri and sons – Kustom Bicycle Show - Autorama 2011

8 maart 2011 -

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.

The Detroit “Autorama” and specifically the Al Petri and Sons kustom bike show leads all other shows in the Midwest - in the promotion and recognition of creative cycling.  It’s the show to see- and be seen at.
