Jon Shipley Takes FreeStyle

The 2016 Kustom Kulture Artisan Show at OC Bikefest kicked off with killer custom bikes built by some of the nation’s top regional Eastern talent, combined with 3-days of a hard-charging music festival which included 3 Doors Down, Candlebox, KIX, Pop Evil and Styx.

OC Bikefest brought in celebs including Michele Smith, an actress and model and most commonly known as the hostess on the TV show American Thunder, and Mikey Teutul of OCC. He was hanging out at the Kustom Show selling his Mikey for President t-shirts and named his running mate, Evan Favaro of Speakeasy Motors, for the coveted office.

Pat Jansen, EMCEE for the Kustom Show, was interviewed by the local Rock Station about the Kustom show and specifically the 700HP trike that goes from zero to 100 in 4.5 seconds.

When asked about the amount of Jack Daniels that was required in the build, he commented,trike-2

“It’s such an outrageous, electric green trike, not only did it require Jack Daniels, but a lot of cocaine and maybe a few pharmaceuticals were needed as well. “

Drum roll please… The show had 11 winners. Jon Shipley of Hoosier Daddy Choppers took the FreeStyle Class win and is our Kustom Kulture Artisan Show representative of the Championship of Americas at the AIMExpo competition in October 2016. If he wins in Orlando, he will receive an all-expense paid trip for himself and his bike to Germany for the AMD World Championship in 2018.

The Kustom Kulture Artisan Show provides a competition class for three of the most popular and innovative custom classes including FreeStyle, Custom Retro and Custom Street classes. Freestyle is an anything-goes class, while the Retro Class features bikes that are older than 1984 and Custom Street is the stock class that requires stock engine cases and frame cradle.
