Clark Heintz Tools & Equipment LLC recommends five questions for folks to ask when shopping for a motorcycle lift.
1. Is this motorcycle lift the ideal size for my vehicle? Whether you are riding a touring bike or a moped, it's important to fully understand not only the dimensions of your vehicle but the weight - and understand the weight capacity of the motorcycle jack, lifting stand or lift table that you are interested in purchasing. Motorcycles are known to…
|Well before we change to an all new setup I want to take the chance and tell the new guys who are checking out this blog what this is about. About 10 years ago TV shows hyped JJ, OCC, Billy Lane and many more. Choppers became a high priced industry and the builders "Rockstars". In 2005 the movie Choppertown by Zack (Coffman) and Scott (Di Lalla) was kind of re-awakening for many of us. We realized that backyard building of motorcycles is something that is still going on all over the world and that it is pretty cool too.
Take what you got and make it something nice, together with your buddies. The "Sinners" became kind of icons for this philosophy because of the film. I had the chance to meet the film makers and the performers and was involved somehow pretty fast. When Zack and Scott came to Europe I joined their trip for some time and later I presented Choppertown on events. At that time the guys from the One World Studios also founded the "Choppertown Nation" a social network for the garage builders.
The best pub in the area where I live is the "Quartier Latin" in Kaldenkirchen. Whenever I was there, common talk at the bar was about the parties and motrocycle fairs I visited for Choppertown, the last "Nation" news and of course Choppers. Mark, one of the owners asked one day if there is a chance to create an event from all this in our town too. I liked the idea to bring people I met at the "Nation" together in real life and we started to go for the first meeting in 2009.
It was heavy raining that day. About 30-40 bikes showed up and left early again, but it was good fun. Over the6 years since than the event became much bigger. We changed the name to "Choppertown Sideshow" and created an image around this name which is a well known brand for a Chopper Meeting full of heart and soul. We kept it a free event. No entrance is to be paid and no cheap commerce to be found. The venue is the streets around the pub and its right in the middle of that sleepy little town near to the German/Dutch border. It is amazing that the locals let us do this, but because we are a family event no one has bad feelings about us. With support of some very good friends I work on this event all year long. Most valuable reward for this is, that the press now is headlining that we make this small town "Choppertown" for one day.
Hope to see you there for Choppertown Sideshow#7
