Two page write up of the 2012, 9th annual NYCVMS ‘Full Tilt’ show in the current issue of The Horse Back Street Choppers magazine.
As 2012 draws to a close, we here at NYCVMS are already busy planning ahead for the 2013 events (just in case the world doesn’t end) which include the booth we share with NYC Vin Moto & VJMC at the International Motorcycle Show in January and the August block party.
This year’s show “Bored, Stroked, Ported” will be the 10th annual, and is set for Sunday, August 25th, 2013.
Last year’s contest was open to our local community of riders, and was a great success. Winner, David Byrd designed 3 variations of a logo for Full Tilt, which were used for stickers, t-shirts and the August show poster. This year is the same idea. The logo will be attached to all promotion from the Javits show in January, to the block party in August.
2013 Contest rules are:
1. Logo must be original artwork and include the following information information (in some form): 10th Annual, New York City Vintage Motorcycle Show (NYCVMS): Bored, Stroked, Ported.
2. Graphic must be motorcycle and show title themed.
3. Graphics must be G rated (it’s a family show, people)
4. Logo submissions must be received no later than midnight on December 18th. Send submissions to email@example.com
5. Compensation: your art all over this years events and some free swag.
That’s about it. Can’t wait to see what you come up with. Got questions? give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org
Big shoutout to our friends at the Rider’s Digest outta London! They sent the ever pleasant Jonathan from the Big Smoke over to document our little get together and I think it came out great!
I know this thread on Reddit has been around for a while but it’s always worth a revisit. If you’re not familiar with Reddit’s “Ask Me Anything” threads… well then you’ve been living in a hole because even the president’s done one. Anyways, the basic gist is that a person of interest opens up a thread in which anybody can ask them any question that comes to mind.
In this case it’s a former Motorcycle theif and Chop Shop owner/fence who’s coming clean and trying to help people from getting their bikes ripped off.
Thank you to everyone who came out to this years NYC Vintage Motorcycle Show. It was a resounding success and a hell of a fun day!
Ryan Handt photographed the whole day for us, and got some great shots. See his photographs as well as spectators shots on the Flickr photo pool, and even add own to the pool, HERE.
