Binford's Awards

Binford’s Awards

Performance Custom Winner

Paul Binford of Binford Custom Cycles built a crazy street/dirt machine that is one of the tallest custom sleds that has been built. Why? Because it is designed for the street and the dirt. It looks like a Sporty SuperMoto bike. Binford calls it Captain Bad Ass. Paul is a big West Coast builder and with him atop the bike it made his 300+ frame look almost normal.

His Sporty took top honors in the Performance custom class at the 2013 Hollister AMD Qualifier Custom Bike Show. Paint and engine hop-up by Binford.

Captain Bad Ass Wins

The word Hollister has been synonymous with California motorcycle rallies for decades. It secured its place in pop culture from the 1954 film “The Wild One” with Marlon Brando, which is based on the 1947 rally. The free motorcycle and street music festival (30 bands on 4 stages) featured Yamaha demo rides, vendors, a food festival, a vintage and Cafe Racer ride-in show, poker runs, bike games, Beer Garden and the premier custom bike show.

Hollister Teems with History

Hollister teems with history. It is universally recognized that “the birth of the American biker” occurred during the infamous Gypsy Tour motorcycle event at Hollister over the Fourth of July holiday weekend in 1947. Fast forward to 2013 and the American biker is alive and well and enjoying life. The bikers, vendors and shoppe owners all had a smile on their face.
