MPLS Messaround this year was A-Okay. A good turnout of cars complimented by a bounty of rockabilly and greaser kids. Some women looked like pinup centerfolds and other women looked like men.
Jordan from Union Speed and Style built an incredible Panhead for Born Free 5 this year and despite the fact that it didn’t make it to the People’s Champ judging, it’s turned a lot of heads. I think he’ll be getting some real estate in magazines like Cycle Source and Time. Regardless, he brought it to his booth and it was nice to see because the attention to detail and fabrication skills are absolutely incredible. He said that he stopped counting labor hours into it after 2,000.
