Speichenzentrum Niederrhein

A shop pure and simple as its name. Toni is a specalist for everything about spokes, rims and wheels. He makes the finest wheels you can imagine. Repairs and new builds.
All brands, all sizes.

If you saw the German Custombike Magazine Bike Contest winning bike, the '52 Triumph you should know that Toni did build the 23" for this too.
His shop is just over the Dutch border in Kerken/Germany.

Pangea Speed

Andy Carter is working as a professional metal masher for about 4 years now. He is a young man, so we sure have a lot to wait for rollin' out of his shop in Salt Lake City.

His bikes always get a lot of attention. And he makes the sweetest parts, as you can see on

You also should check out his blog. Always a suprise.

And of course- he is supporting us.

Tattoo Event

There is an amazing event coming. Our friend and supporter Andy is hosting the

2nd Tattoo Ink Explosion

in Mönchengladbach-Germany

The lineup of the artists is incredible.

You should not miss this convention for an other reason, also. There will be some pinstriping action by two very wellknown artists. One of the objects they will work on will be sold in a silent auction.
The proceeds will go into our FFTF !

Garage Maniacs Photo-Expo

For almost five years a group of Dutch and Belgian guys have been building traditional choppers and occasionally a custom car or Hot-rod. You've seen their bikes in the well known chopper magazines, and when you've been on the better kustom kulture meetings and shows in the Netherlands, Belgium, United Kingdom and Germany you might have seen their vehicles. When the Garage Maniacs heard about the Choppertown Meeting they thought it was fun to do something more than just come by. Among the almost 60 chopper freakz are three rather well know Photographers, so they came with the great plan for a photo exhibition. So now hear this...
16th of July; the Garage Maniacs presents;
"The Garage Maniacs Photo Shootout."

With pics from:
Sven de Wilde a.k.a. "el Cheapo"

Well known pinstriper and specialpaint artist, and of course the editor of Motorized Magazine

"Maurice van den Tillaard a.k.a. "the Flyin' Dutchman"

He was hanging around with the Sinners before anyone over here ever heard of them.
And he's responsible for some of the pics in the booklet that came with the first Choppertown DVD .

Limpe Iven

You've seen his atmospheric pictures in magazine all around the globe.

Next to the pisc from this three outstanding photographers will be pics from a very well known American Photographer. He's been on the road with his camera in one hand and the handlebar in the other for some years now, and his pics capture the lifstyle from the traditional chopper culture from the inside. More on him later!
