Back in March, Custom Chrome held it's annual Dealer Show in San Jose, CA. It's a special day where dealers have the opportunity to meet the manufacturers and designers and bike builders from all over the world showcasing their newest innovations and technology in an ideal environment. This year they included an International Bike Show Series as part of the festivities. Chris headed to the show and brought along a few bikes to enter in the show. He was thrilled to win 1st Place in the Modified Harley Class for McPhiz and 2nd Place in the Jammer Old School Class for Lady Luck. Along with two beautiful trophies, Chris also received $3,000.00 in Custom Chrome credit! Thanks Custom Chrome! All photos by www.jerrysouthworth.com [gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="4"]
When Chris won the International Motorcycle Show's Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show this last December, he was invited to participate in the National Championship in Florida during Daytona Bike Week. When he found that out, he made it his goal to get out to Daytona for Bike Week. Right away Chris' parents, Butch & Jo Richardson, offered to drive the motorcycles in the trailer all the way across the country so Chris could participate in the competition. They're the best parents ever! Without them this trip would have never happened. Chris and Fiona, with daughters Bella and Faye in tow, caught a flight to Florida and the fun began.
LA Speed Shop set up a booth in The Limpnickie Lot at The Stone Edge Skate Park. They had a couple of bikes on display and some LA Speed Shop merchandise for sale. The skate park was by far the best place in Daytona to check out some old school bobbers and choppers. It was packed with visitors from all over the world and a great time was had by all.
The best part of the trip was when Chris found out his bike McPhiz was awarded First Place for the Modified Harley Class in the International Motorcycle Show's Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show. McPhiz was up against some stellar competition and Chris was amazed and honored to be chosen the winner. With this win, Chris got an invitation to compete in the AMD World Championship in Sturgis, South Dakota. With that, Chris' new goal is to get to Sturgis...I hope Butch & Jo are up for another road trip!
Chris sends......"A heartfelt THANKS to all the builders at The Limpnickie Lot, everyone at the International Motorcycle Show's Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show, everyone who took time to stop by the LA Speed Shop booth, and most of all my wife, kids and my Mom and Dad".[gallery columns="4"]
Back in December Chris headed to The Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, California. He entered McPhiz and Lady Luck in The Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show. The competition was stiff with many beautiful and innovative motorcycles. At the awards ceremony Chris was thrilled to be awarded 2nd Place for Lady Luck in the Freestyle Class and People's Choice. McPhiz stole the spotlight winning 1st Place in the Modified Harley Class. Chris will be bringing both bikes back to the Daytona Progressive International Motorcycle Show held during Daytona Bike Week March 9th-12th 2011.
