Custom Culture powered by BMW Motorcycles Ambassador
For the third year, AIMExpo presented by Nationwide will host the Championship of the Americas (COTA) bike build-off, an AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building qualifying event. With each year the bikes continue to impress the crowds that flood the aisles of the show, and last year’s entries were no exception. In addition to the established Freestyle, Street Custom, Retro Custom and Performance Custom classes, new awards will be given to best bobber, café, chopper and tracker that “Trended” across social media. With the new location of this year’s show within 500 miles of 50% of the United States population, the quality and quantity of builds showcased in the 2017 Championship of the Americas competition will be the best-of-the-best from North America.
In addition to the COTA bike build-off, Custom Culture powered by BMW Motorcycles will feature exhibitors that have embraced the custom lifestyle. Skidmark Garage, a 10,000 sq. ft. community motorcycle garage in Cleveland, will host the Skidmark Garage Showcase & Lounge, a marquee showcase in the pavilion that will provide an engaging area for attendees and builders to mingle, take photos and share dreams. The “Artisans Row” will showcase talent of industry craftsmen and craftswomen in a variety of fields including photography, tattooing, leather work, pinstriping, metal work and even kids face painting.
