The inaugural AIMExpo Championship of the America’s featured a slew of radically designed, hand built bikes by North America's top custom builders.

Among the winners was Bill Dodge from Bling Cycles who won the Retro Custom Class, Jim “Preacher” Goodrich from Preachers Hot Rod Cycles won the Performance Custom Class and Dell Battle from Dangerous Dezigns won the Street Custom Class. The Free Style winner who was selected by his peers and AIMExpo judges alike was Jeremy Cupp from LC Fabrications.

Congratulations to Jeremy and good luck in Cologne!
