Thank you


Thank you to everyone who came out to support this years 11th Annual David Mann Chopperfest. We strive to bring you a better show each and every year and we couldn't do that without the support of so many talented builders, amazing artists, vendors and sponsors. Last year you asked for more music so this year we brought you 3 bands, and Gilby Clarke as the headliner! You asked for more David Mann art so we teamed up with Ron Seigel Fine Art and Tracy Mann to bring you more Mann art and memorabilia. Please let me know what we can improve for next year. Its the only way for us to get better and give you the show you deserve. - From Tory and the ChopperFest team.

Sponsor Highlight: Morrow Vintage Customs


 We would like to thank Kurt Morrow with Morrow Vintage Customs for his sponsorship support. Kurt has been at every Chopperfest since it started!Morrow Vintage Customs specialize in vintage motorcycle repair/service, engine rebuilds,  and custom fabrication, all pre-1984. They have been business over 15 years in Ventura.



Be sure to visit their booth during the day and check out their bikes and new apparel.

If you're on the fence about riding out to this year's Chopper Fest, head over to the Chopper Town website and watch some of their Kustom Kulture Motorcycle Movies. Harbor Town Bobber, Chopper Town, Brittown, and Choppahead  Volumes 1-4 are highly recommended. They'll get you all fired up and raring to go."

Cold Steel Knives giveaway




Cold Steel, Incorporated was founded in 1980, a company dedicated to making the strongest, sharpest knives in the world.
Over the last three decades, Cold Steel has been at the forefront of the many innovations that have helped to define the knife industry as a whole. Progressive accomplishment, including the introduction of the checked Kraton® handles, and the tanto point blade styles have gone from curiously interesting features to industry-wide hallmarks of quality and sophistication.
New ground was also broken with the introduction of unique new blade steels like San Mai III® and Tri-Ad™ Lock& locking mechanism for folding knives. Tri-Ad™ Lock for example, has never been equaled by any of Cold Steel's competitors and nothing they have produced yet has been proven to outperform it.
Of course Cold Steel will always look to the future, constantly striving to make the world's strongest, sharpest knives. That goal as elusive and difficult to achieve as it is, has been the same for the past thirty years.
