Each year we celebrate the birthday of our King. King Willem Alexander. A few years ago he visited, so to speak, our clubhouse…. Well, anyway, here’s a picture of our King upstairs in our clubhouse. Here’s to you, Willem, happy birthday!
In memory of Ed 1971-2019. Today it’s three years ago Ed passed away. And yes, time flies. Today a small clip where we can see Ed in the prime of his life. This film I made in 1998, on the 16th of May, when we were busy removing our first clubhouse. Our second clubhouse was far from ready, but good enough for replacing the old one. We also see Stud, Platje, Maup and Brembo.
Nothing sporty today but a real Sportster. This one is a very nice example of what they were already able to make of it at the time in 1971. This Harley and the lady stood model in Street Chopper Magazine at the time.
This magazine appeared for the first time in January 1969. It became a monthly distributed magazine till 2007. In 2008 they decided to make two issues a year ‘to add more value to the magazine’. A few years after their 40th anniversary it ceased to exist in a paper version in the news stands. Just as Easyriders Magazines, these are history now.
Everyone was in such a good mood. And it showed. The commitment clubs have shown in making their booth has been phenomenal. All participants who have come from far and wide to selflessly set up their motorbikes at the show are also indescribable. The artists who showed their best and the exhibitors who always want to be there to complete the show. The people who have taken the trouble to set up stalls full of second-hand parts, etc. In short, all show participants.
We, Rogues MC Opmeer and Almere would like to thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for your effort.
It shows two percenters rule and the Rogue brotherhood and biker scene in general is still alive and kicking…
Today a few examples of what was put on display at our 29th Chopper show. And as always it’s a matter of taste which one you or I do find the nicest bike. But that doesn’t alter the fact that most of the presented bikes on our 29th chopper show had something to offer for most of you visitors.
One of two creations from Willem Zoomer. A high-neck chopper with a custom-made hardtail frame from VG.
Bubu is from northern France and is a member of the Chopper Freakers Band. He builds several choppers a year. Sometimes for friends, often for himself. He built this golden chopper with its rare Knucklehead engine several years ago and we were happy to have this beautiful piece of art at our 29th choppershow.
Easter Sunday we held our 29th RMC Choppershow. Yesterday I posted some pictures of our show-winner Sven ‘El Cheapo’. Today a small clip about this event. Due to the 2mb upload limit I’m forced to compress the clips quite a bit.
