MAMA TRIED | THE HARDCORE & HEADSTRONG MIDWEST MOTORCYCLE SHOW IN MILWAUKEE

Milwaukee is the heart & soul of American Iron, and the builders there are often overshadowed by the big dogs on the East and West coasts. There’s a different edge to the Midwest scene. These guys don’t have the advantage of being in the lap of the media, and don’t seem to be the type to give a shit, actually. These guys are shop rats, toiling away in the dark, cold, solitude of winter with the will to out-design, out-build, and out-perform all comers. Now there’s a show to highlight the hardcore & headstrong talent of the Midwest–

“The Midwest guys, all winter they’ve been coming up with their own deal– and they’re kinda outside the loop a little bit. So that downtime that you have– it’s a chance that you can get pretty creative…You created something, and you’re riding it, and it might not be perfect– but it just really doesn’t get much better than that.”  ~Noot (Charles City, IA)

  1. Having lived in the Midwest for five years previous to moving back to CO ..I can tell you first hand … from the custom scooter crowd [ Moped Marauders ] .. to Chopper/Bobber/Cafe racer bunch … and right on down to the Rice Rocket monster crew … there’s some mighty fine rides toddling ‘ round the street of the Midwest by builders no one has ever heard of

  2. Thanks for the props!! Looking forward to meeting you in person some time, really love your blog. Weekly radness that I reference again and again. Honored to be on it.

    Thanks again- Scott
