Jardine Dyno Shootout, Iron & Lace Calendar Bike Builders Seminars & Saturday Night Party, America’s Premier Bike Contest is AMD World Championship Qualifier, A Great Weekend of Live Music, Purrfect Angelz and Calendar Girls Gone Wild and more!

Long Beach, CA, July 16-17th
-The Los Angeles Calendar Motorcycle Show Weekend presented by Performance Machine continued to grow again this year as the most popular consumer street bike show in America. Always the 3rd weekend of July at the Queen Mary Event Park in Long Beach, CA,, the Show offers a huge weekend of activities with sold out participation from 195 major motorcycle and product companies, up 30 more from last year in an expanded event layout. The Show again featured leading custom bike builders from across America and around the world, and hotested a 2-day capacity crowd up another 20% over last year.

The Show is produced by Jim Gianatsis of Gianatsis Design Associates, also producer of the renown Motorcycle Pinup Calendars and Website for which the Calendar Bike Show marked the 2006 Calendars’ World Premier.

A new addition to the Show this year was its affiliation as an Official Qualifying Round of the American Motorcycle Dealer World Championship of Custom Bike Building, with the top placing bikes in the Performance Machine Bike Show Contest receiving a confirmed invitation to the AMD World Championship Final at Big Twin West in Las Vegas the weekend of November 18-20th.

The LA Calendar Show has become 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 Larry Nagel and Paul Yang of Dreamcraft Studios with their radical new $250,000 billet bike “Rapture” featuring a 1-piece frame which was CNC machined over 2-days from a 900 lb.s solid chunk of aluminum. Among Rapture's many other unique features were the scratch built quad tube front forks, a through the swingarm exhaust system, and dual raised windscreen fuel tanks. Whew!

Stage activities were hosted throughout the weekend by Calendar Angel, Miss Texas and Miss Harley-Davidson “Rockin’ Robin" Cunningham. Robin was assisted for the trophy presentation on Sunday by Performance Machine marketing director Ted Sands and’s Keith “Bandit” Ball. Both Ted and Keith all served as Bike contest judges earlier in the day, together with Iron Works editor Dain Gingerelli and Calendar photographer and Show producer Jim Gianatsis.

Pro Builder Class winner John Franco and "Lethal" Strike" from Wicked Brothers.

Taking top Pro Builder Class honors was John Franco’s “Lethal Strike” named for the rattlesnake skin down the top of the gas tank. Built by Wicked Brothers, the judges liked Franco’s bike for its simplicity with clean flowing lines which all worked together, the stealth grey paint job accented by all the chrome which had been brushed to a unique dull finish. The Show’s title sponsor Performance Machine bolstered the already huge $60,000 Bike Show awards purse with an additional $5,000 cash award for the Best Performance Machine Equipped Bike at the Show going to Mark Daley of Thunderstruck Custom Cycles with his silver and polished chopper featuring all Performance Machine components.

The Show weekend offered an incredible lineup of activities including the Jardine Performance West Coast Horsepower Dyno Shootout - an exclusive feature attraction at the Show. The dyno was hosted by Jardine Marketing Director John Gunter, together with Kerry Bryant and Cycle News editor Scott Rousseau. The dyno ran some 80 bikes non-stop thoughout the 2-day weekend to a standing room only crowd of spectators. The strongest running Harley was East Side Performance’s Turbo Nitrous Harley 107 ci with 283.7 hp. World Record holder John Noonan returned to try and breakhis record of 545 hp, but could only manage this year to get his Turbo Nitrous Suzuki Hyabusa up to 339.0 hp to win the unlimited sportbike class.

Fans got to meet many Discovery Channel and Speed TV featured celebrity custom builders from the programs American Thunder, Great Biker Buildoff, and Build or Bust including Russell Mitchell, Jesse Rooke, Roland Sands, Mitch Bergeron, Mike Stafford, and Harold Pontarelli. The builders were featured in Iron & Lace Calendar Bike Builder's Seminars held hourly throughout the weekend in the midway tent located in the center of the Show Park. Each builder explained their own personal style for building world class custom bikes, then they answered questions from enthusiastic fans. The Iron & Lace Calendar Bike Builder Seminars were a big hit among fans and are a regular feature of the Calendar Show.

The LA Calendar Bike Bike show featured 2 days of incredible live music and entertainment. Both days featured classic rock with the hugely popular Unauthorized Rolling Stones out of San Francisco, together with the Janis Joplin style rock/blues vocals of the beautiful Boudeeka. Alternating with the Stones on Saturday was beautiful blues rock singer Jessie Payo from Jessie and the Rain Dogs, On Sunday it was sexy Pat Benatar stylings of Heather of the band Balentine who traded sets with the Stones.

And really bringing down the house in 2 different performances each day to showcase the PinUp Model calendar theme of the Calendar Show were the the beautiful Purrfect Angelz with their sizzlin'’ Las Vegas style stage performances. Along with a Calendar Girl Model Search Pageant each day with $70 0 in prize money that revealed beautiful bikini girls Holly Webber, Natalie Green and Candice Curtis as the winners. Candice’s beautiful attributes also earned her a paid calendar shoot the following day with photographer Jim Gianatsis for the next Iron & Lace Calendar. Bikes selected from the Show for the Calendar shoot included a retro hot rod from Zero Engineering of Japan, and a just completed pop stylized bar hopper built by Bob Phillips of Wizard Creations for actor Brad Pitt.

And what would the Calendar Bike Show be without world the premier of the 2006 Calendars with beautiful SBK World Superbike girl Calendar Angels Calendar Angel Andra Cobb, along with newest Angels Christina Linderman and Dominique Lafayette. Plus a plethora of beautiful girls where ever you looked from Hooters, Feelin’ Lucky, Archie’s Ice Cream, and dozens of other Show exhibitors and venders.

On Saturday night Show producer and calendar photographer Jim Gianatsis hosted the Iron & Lace Calendar Builders Night Party to another capacity crowd 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 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 rock blues music was provided at the party by the Shari Puorto Band.

Incredibly, despite the Show’s continued growth, past years’ problems with parking and long food lines were now fully resolved. Spectators’ motorcycles were parked on site in a secured check-in and fenced lot. While spectators in automobiles were routed, when necessary, quickly into nearby downtown Long Beach parking structures then shuttled in a 5 minute bus ride to the Show.

A wide array of food venders including the Queen Mary BBQ, Hooters Restaurants, Big Mamma’s Hot Dogs, Barnett's Lemonade, Archie's Ice cream and mexican food in 2 different Show locations. This included the new Metric Roadhouse in the Show’s expanded Paved Lot assured spectators were taken care of quickly with great food choices. The Roadhouse also featured live music both days by beautiful DJ Samantha Lee to make sure exhibitors and fans weren't left out of the action.

Thanks for a
Great 2005 Show from...

7/21/05 - Hey Jim, I want to thank you and your staff for such a wonderful expeirience. the amount of media exposure could not have been better. One of my bikes will be featured in "Iron works" and again in "Hot Bike" of Japan and europe. this same bike was photographed by Tom Zimberoff in April for his up coming book "The art of the chopper vol.II" - David Anthony, Empty Tomb Choppers

Jim, Congratulations on a successful show! Hope it met all your expectations. I thought it was a better display than BikeWeek in Daytona. Looking forward to next year!- Jeff Higginbotham, Ducati Monster List.

Hi Jim -- Your show was a complete success for us; it's been a wonderfully crazy week here with customer visits and orders, media interest, and so on.

Your assistant Craig was an especially good resource for us at the show, and we appreciated him asking Joe to speak twice at the Builder's Seminars.

Now that we have been a vendor, will I get next year's information and forms sent automatically? Or will I have to go on your web site in February to get the information myself? Just wanted to plan ahead..... Thanks, - Pam Takai
Mercury Customs
