‘Bout that time again, fellow vintage bike people. If you’re in Indy, or in riding distance, we’ll see you at the 6th Annual Indianapolis Rockers Reunion on May 19th, 2012. This year, we showed our support by designing the event logo and website graphics…you oughta see how the patches turned out (rad). Adam Ratcliff and his cohorts of Ton-Up Indy have put together a top-notch event this year complete with a bike run before the bike show. The gathering of vintage and custom bikes outside Melody Inn is a good time, then the fellas head out for the afterparty, where custom awards are handed out. Here are some more details:
