As you maybe know Zack and Scott, the producers and directors of Choppertown have another movie project going on. Iam Zozo is a Horror movie, not a biker film.
But Halloween is coming soon and this is the right time for some thrills.
There is a free promotional screening on that scary night in the web. Please use this link and enjoy.
And if you like it : the boys are still trying to raise the funds to bring this movie into the theaters. If you have some savings and want to become part of this, get in contact on facebook or the Choppertown/One World Studios sites.

Wannabe Choppers pre alert

You all know Ricky of Wannabe Choppers. He became an important part of our event because of his personality, his builds and his support. And of course this includes his wife Maria too.
His Honda "Flotter Otto" was at the Sideshow. Now Custombike Magazin did send out Volker Rost to Rickys shop for a feature about this bike. Watch out for it.
And see Rickys site too: www.wannabe-choppers.de

Best Chopper, the story behind

The trophy for the best Chopper at the Sideshow was given to Christian Stadler for his 53 Panhead.
I was asked to write a feature about this bike for Custombike Magazin and last week I went to the "Ruhrpott" area to meet him again. We had a nice afternoon, shooting some pics. You will see all this in the mag soon. A surprise for me was the story about the man himselfs. He is a speed maniac. On the road, the water and in the sky. Find out more about Christian here:
