David Mann Chopper Fest

The goal of the Chopperfest is to bring like-minded motorcycle enthusiasts together to pay tribute to the past history, and ultimately inspire one another through the art of creation, and inspire future generations of artists and builders to push the limits of motorcycle art.

We love Choppers. And the team at Chop Cult has a great gallery of custom choppers at the David Mann Chopper Fest. Check out the Chopper Fest here.

The 13th Annual Chopper Fest - David Mann Chopper Fest

The 13th Annual Chopper Fest

Special Motorcycle Art Exhibit – A very special Motorcycle Art Exhibit, an All Brand Antique and Custom Motorcycle Show; Custom Bike Builder Displays featuring World Class Bike Builders; Hundreds of Motorcycle/Culture Vendors; a New and Used Motorcycle Parts Swap Meet; Live Rock and Blues Bands including the Shari Puorto Band, Food and Beer.

The history of Chopperfest in Ventura California is really a snapshot of America at it’s finest. Real people who think outside the box and who can translate those thoughts into visual beauty both functional and artistic.

Originally the brainchild of David “Huggie” Hansen, Chopperfest became much more than a showcase for futuristic Motorcycle design when famed artist David Mann died in Sept of 2004.

The grief felt by the entire two wheel world found expression as those who loved and respected David lined the stage with his wife to honor him just three months after his death. The love for both the “artist” and the “lifestyle” he envisioned blended perfectly through a huge showing of his original art and an equally huge showcase of custom motorcycles.

Bike Builders from across the nation came to both honor David Mann at his passing and welcome the birth of his signature event. Chopperfest is forever dedicated to the design, function and art of the motorcycle through those talented enough to create and those creative enough to appreciate talent.
