Performance Machine presents the 16th Annual
2007 LA Calendar Motorcycle Show Weekend
and 2-Day Calendar Girl Music Festival

The Queen Mary, Long Beach, CA July 14-15th, 2007 - The 16th Annual 2007 edition Los Angeles Calendar Motorcycle Show Weekend sponsored by Performance Machine continued to entertain and excite streetbike enthusiasts and the general pubic again this year, as the premier streetbike motorcycle show in America. Produced by Gianatsis Design in partnership with the Queen Mary at the beautiful Queen Mary Event Park alongside the beautiful Pacific Ocean in Long Beach, CA, this year’s Bike Show took place on the July 14-15th as to not conflict with the Laguna Seca MotoGP the following weekend.

As always, the Show featured a huge non-stop weekend of activities for custom, cruiser, classic and sport bike enthusiasts, together with some 180 major motorcycle and product manufacturers, exhibitors and venders, and the leading custom bike from across America and around the World. This year the Calendar Bike Show also showed a noteworthy increase in spectator attendance over last year's 2006 Show with a 5% spectator increae on Saturday and 10% increase on Sunday despite a $5 increase in admission to added entertainment for the fans. This is significant in light of most major outdoor motorcycle events axcross America experiencing a 30-50% decline in attendance over the last 2 years. And it reflects the Calendar Bike Show's well known reputation as the premier custom and performance streetbike show in America.

Many of the America's and the world’s top Pro and Amateur street bike builders were in attendance to compete for an increased record purse of $86,000 in cash and awards in the Calendar Show Bike Building Championship. This year's Show Contest features 3 new classes including the Iron Works magazine Street Chopper, and Bar Hopper classes, and the new Yamaha Road Star sponsored Metric Cruiser Class located in the exciting new Road Star Metric Midway featuring Japanese Cruisers, along with classes for European and Japanese Sportbikes. There are 11 Calendar Bike Building Championship Classes including the premier Radical Pro Builder Class sponsored by Iron Works magazine.

The coveted Performance Machine Best of Show trophy and awards this year went to Greg Westbury of Westbury Hardcore out of Concord, CA. The bike was a flawless, clean and simple Panhead Bobber in colors Green, Black and Green which had scored a prior win at Artistry in Iron at Las Vegas Bikefest. The contest judges including Show producer and Calendar photographer Jim Gianatsis, builder Joe Takai of Mercury Customs, and Survivor TV Series producer and rider Adam Briles liked the Westbury bobber because its well executed simplicity stood out amid the many other detail intensive and overly busy choppers and theme bikes. Next to Best of Show and reclaiming his Pro Builder Class win from last year was Randy Hocker from Red Hill Motorcycle Werx in Loveland, Co, with a very clean, simple black painted rigid with eye catching external fuel lines along the side of the tank.The $5,000 Best Performance Machine equipped bike went to Alberico Raposo with a basketcase Harley FXST built up by Barry LaCour of Top Shelf Customs in Huntington Beach, CA.

The annual LA Calendar Motorcycle show celebrates the premier of the new seasons’ FastDates.com Motorcycle PinUp Calendars photographed by Calendar Motorcycle Show producer Jim Gianatsis, with Calendar Kitten and Playboy Playmate Tamara Witmer featured in all 3 editions of the new 2008 Iron & Lace Custom Bikes, Fast Dates Racebikes and Garage Girls pinup calendars, with Tamara serving as this year’s master of ceremonies on stage together with new Calendar Kitten Tiffany Toth.
