Long Beach, CA, July 17-18th, 2004 -The Los Angeles Calendar Motorcycle Show Weekend presented by Performance Machine at the Queen Mary Event Park in Long Beach, CA, continued to grow again this year as the most popular consumer street bike show in America catering to custom, cruiser, classic and sportbike enthusiasts. Always the 3rd weekend of July, this year’s show featured a incredible weekend of activities and our first ever sold out participation by 165 major motorcycle and product manufacturers, exhibitors and venders, leading custom bike builders from across the world, together with a 2-day jam-packed crowd of some 15,000 motorcycle enthusiasts!

For this years Show director Jim Gianatsis of Gianatsis Design Associates, also producer of the renown Motorcycle Pinup Calendars and Website for which the Calendar Bike Show marks the Calendars’ annual season premier, focused on increased visitor parking in cooperation with the City of Long Beach for continued growth in spectator attendance. People arriving by car during prime Show hours were routed off the I-710 Long Beach Freeway to the nearby Convention Center city parking structures and then were quickly given free shuttle bus rides to the Show. While spectators arriving on motorcycles were routed directly into the Queen Mary lot for immediate parking, just a short walk into the Show. At no point during the weekend did anyone have to wait more than a few minutes to park, which had been a big problem in past years when many people were turned away.

John Noonan tunes his turbo Hayabusa on the Jardine Dyno before kicking out a motorcycle world record 545hp!

The Show weekend included an incredible lineup of activities including the Jardine Performance West Coast Horsepower Dyno Shootout - now an exclusive feature attraction at the Show. In a stunning climax on Sunday afternoon to an already record-breaking weekend at the Show, JE Pistons' John Noonan on his Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa land speed bike obliterated the existing North American record for horsepower registered at a Dyno Shoot-Out on Sunday at 545hp, Noonan surpassed the current world record by 31 hp!

The LA Calendar Motorcycle Show again supported an important charity, the Iron Works Magazine Readers Ride to benefit Olive Crest Children’s Shelters - the biggest shelter for orphans, abused children and families in Southern California), as its ride-to destination. On Saturday morning riders start ed at the Olive Crest Children's main facility in Santa Ana, CA, and then rode to the Calendar Bike Show in Long Beach, just 25 miles away, where for the Ride’s charity donation, participants got to enjoy all the Show’s weekend’s activities and be treated to lunch and VIP up front parking.

Shinya Kimura from Zero Engineering, Japan, flew in just for the Show and took the coveted Performance Machine Best of Show Trophy. His bikes are back ordered 4 years! He's flanked by Roland and Ted Sands from PM, plus Calendar Cover Angels, Miss Great Britain Nicki Lane and Laura Niles.

As always the LA Calendar Show offers one of America’s premier Custom, Sportbike and Classic Bike Contests featuring many of top bike Pro and Amateur builders in America -and now from around the world vying for the prestigious Performance Machine Best of Show Trophy. Winning the coveted top spot this year was Shinya Kimura founder of Zero Engineering of Japan (now with a 2nd shop in Las Vegas) who flew to America to enter his bikes in the Contest, confirming the LA Calendar motorcycle Show as now a world caliber event. Shinya’s winning bike “Masamune” was a ‘50’s Panhead street hotrod with a sheet aluminum fabricated frame rigid frame, ‘74 springer front end, and bodywork befitting the retro style bike. Zero has a 4-year customer waiting list for their highly regard retro rods which actually use new replica components like the engines. Upon accepting the Best of Show trophy from Performance Machine’s Ted and Roland Sands, Shinya posed with Calendar Angel 2005 cover girls Miss Great Britain Nicki Lane and Laura Niles, then fired up the bike with just one kick to ride off into the sunset.

In contention for winning Best of Show for the 3rd year running was Jesse Rooke, now sponsored by Rock Star energy drink, who still took home 1st place Pro Builder in the LA Calendar Bike Show’s premier feature class against some 30 other professional builder bikes including bikes from Mitch Bergeron, Jesse James’ West Coast Choppers. Rooke’s winning bike was a development from his last year’s highly innovative Best of Show winning Kali Kruiser bicycle concept which had been rushed to completion for the ‘03 Show and hadn’t yet been wired to run, drawing complaints from some “sour grapes” competitors. As Jesse accepted this year Pro Builder trophy to become the Show’s first ever 3-time winner and confirm his status as one of the world’s best custom builders, hecklers in the audience began calling out “Start it Up!” Jesse paid them no mind for a moment and looked ready to push away another non-running bike, but then he non chalantly reached under the tank and pushed the starter button and the Rock Star Kruiser roared to life. Jesse jumped on the bike, popped the clutch and spun a 180 burnout in the grass and blasted off through the gathered crowd as the naysayers were left picking uprooted grass from their opened mouths.

The Show’s title sponsor Performance Machine bolstered the already huge $60,000 Bike Show awards purse with an additional $5,000 Award Check for the Best PM Equipped Bike at the Show which was won by Sean Gibbs of Wild West Choppers with his all new 2004 special construction chopper featuring all Performance Machine components.. Calendar Angel and Mikuni Carburetor advertising campaign model Andra Cobb with the world premier of's incredible V-Twin Chopper. Look for more pictures of the world's most inovative new chopper in The Iron & Lace Garage.

Fans got to meet many Discovery Channel and Speed TV featured builders including Mitch Bergeron, Paul Yaffe, Mike Stafford, Harold Pontarelli plus West Coast superstars Ron Simms and Mike Powers showcasing their latest rolling hardware. Also making their first ever motorcycle show appearance just on Saturday were builders Larry Nagal and Paul Yang of with their industry shattering hi-tech chopper that would have been a contender for Best of Show if it didn’t have to put in a press appearance with their bike at the Pasadena Art Center of Design on Sunday.

Exciting new attractions this year included the free Iron & Lace Calendar Bike Builder's Seminars held hourly throughout the weekend in a midway tent located in the center of the Show Park conducted by the leading custom bike builders in America as featured in the Iron & Lace calendar. Featured builders included Harold Pontarelli, Russell Mitchell, and Cyril Huze who made the 4-day drive from his shop in Florida, Jesse Rooke and Paul Yaffe, each explaining their own personal style for building world class custom bikes, and then they answered questions from enthusiastic fans. This was probably the first ever opportunity for fans to discuss bike building techniques with top celebrity builders in an open forum. The Iron & Lace Calendar Bike Builder Seminars was a big hit among fans and will remain a regular feature at future Shows.

On Saturday night Show producer and calendar photographer Jim Gianatsis hosted the Iron & Lace Calendar Builders Night Party from 9pm to 1am aboard the historic Queen Mary ocean liner in the ship’s Observation Room Bar. Many of the top Iron & Lace Calendar bike builders were there to party with the Show staff, exhibitors, venders and fans And what would the Iron & Lace calendar builders party be without the beautiful Calendar Angels who were also in attendance with the Purrfect Angelez. Live musical entertainment was provided at the party by the beautiful country rock band featuring sisters Allison, Ashley and Lauren Lawry backed up by their dad Jon on a wicked lead rock guitar.

This year’s the LA Calendar Bike Bike show featured different musical themes each day by incredible bands that played all day long. Saturday featured an all day Mini Blues Festival headlined by 2000 lbs of Blues, one of Los Angeles’ most popular blues bands, together with special guests Lynwood Slim on hermonica and beautiful vocalist Taryn Donath. Other acts scheduled to appear throughout the afternoon and into the evening to fit the beautiful pinup calendar girl theme of the Show included Francesa of Francesca & the Flames, Huston Orkide, Mama's Boys with Lisa Cee, and Jessie Payo from Jessie and the Raindogs. Then on Sunday the Show shifted to a Classic Rock ‘n’ Roll Festival with the hugely popular Unauthorized Rolling Stones out of San Francisco ("I've seen the Rolling Stones in concert," said one Show goer, "and these guys are better!"), together with the Janis Joplin style rock/blues vocals of the beautiful Boudeeka.

But really bringing down the house both days and jamming fans to the park's main Stage were the the beautiful Purrfect Angelz with their sizzlin'’ Las Vegas style stage shows. One of the Angelz' skits involved bringing builders Jesse Rooke and Russell Mitchell on on stage, seating them in chairs, and then the girls lap danced , abused, slapped and kicked them to the beat of pounding of the music and the cheering crowds. For some reason the guys still managed to smile and grin throughout the whole ordeal. And for sportbike fans the Las Vegas Extremes sportbike stunt riding team of heart throb Pauly Sherer and sexy Jolleen "JoJo" Farmer with their wild tire smookin' antics tore up the parking lot on Saturday.

Showcasing the Calendar Girls theme of the Calendar Bike Show will be the premier of the 2005 Calendars with the beautiful SBK World Superbike Calendar Angels in attendance including Miss Great Britain Nicki Lane and beautiful new Calendar Angels Andra Cobb and Laura Niles. Plus the beautiful Corona Extra and Archie’s Ice Cream Girls,
Associate Sponsorship support for the premier streetbike event weekend in America i was provided by Iron Works magazine, Jardine Performance, Corona Extra, Trader Publications, Calendars & Website, The Los Angeles Times / ReCycler / Cycle Buys, Quick Throttle and SPEED TV’s American Thunder.
