The Scene: Rockers Reunion Indianapolis 2013
When Spring rolls around in Indianapolis, the vintage bike scene comes alive at Rockers Reunion. The 7th annual event brought out the city’s coolest customs and oldies-but-goodies, but it’s the overall scene we dig the most: the people, the music, the vibe. If you couldn’t make it, here’s a taste of what you missed and why we’re a proud sponsor of this always-entertaining motorcycle gathering.
Local photog and motorcyclist, Michelle Pemberton arrives on her ’73 CL350 Honda.

Artist Chris Sickels’ custom, hand-painted “Half-Ton” symbol for cracking 50mph on his ’65 HD Pacer. He now moves a little faster on his R60/2.
Metal, polished or with patina, is abundant. So is leather and black apparel.
Jared from Vardagen brought his Norton Commando along with some nicely designed and hand-printed shirts at their vendor tent.
Rik Tommasone’s li’l Honda won a well-deserved trophy for Best Cafe Racer this year.
Matty Bennett from National Moto+Cycle sets up an impressive row of their custom motobikes in the vendor area.

Ton Up Club members. Thanks, guys, for hosting a great event!
A handful of winners from the 2013 Rockers Reunion Indianapolis Bike Show.
This year, the weather forecast was looking terrible for the event. Hail, high winds and torrential downpours were potentially headed to Indy, but when the event rolled around there was only a few minutes of sprinkles and perfect temps for the entire bike show and afterparty. That’s Spring in the Midwest. So, if you stayed home or couldn’t make it to Rockers Reunion this year, don’t miss next year and ride on in, man! Keep it tuned to the event’s website for dates and info about 2014.
