Choppershow History

The second choppershow was in the neighboring village Abbekerk. The building itself had two different spaces and one of them was about 6 feet higher. So we had to improvise to get the bikes to the elivated floor. Man power was needed…

This location turned out to be also far to small for all the visitors. So ‘Het Dorpshuis’ in Abbekerk was a one off to.

Sportster Monday

Paisano Publications Inc. featured this XLCH Sportster Chopper below in their 24th edition of Easyriders magazine from November 1974. The red color on the engine itself gives/gave it a extra dimension. It might give you some ideas for your next ‘chopper project’. And bear in mind that it’s almost fifty years ago that this neat looking chopper was created.

Two weeks from today – 30th RMC Choppershow

Yes it’s true, two weeks from today Sportscentre ‘De Weijver’ in Hoogwoud will be Chopper centre of Holland for the 30st time. It all started back in 1992 in Blokker with our first RMC Choppershow as a – sort of – try-out and counterpart of the MotorRai where only the mainstream new bikes were shown.

In those years, before we started with our 1st show, CCN Beverwijk already organised choppershows in the summer outside on the main road of the shopping district.

Anyway, now thirtytwo years later we try again to show you chopper enthusiasts what’s going on in this scene. This years theme will be ‘Swingarms’ and our special guest for this year is Dale Arenson as shown above.

We’ll hope to meet you all again oh the 31st of March in the renovated sports hall. Till then.
