Los Angeles Calendar Motorcycle Show Concours d' Elegance & Calendar Girl Music Festival
The 2013 LA Calendar Motorcycle Show continues its now 22-year tradition as the premier outdoor streetbike event in America
The Calendar Show is broadening its focus from the American V-Twin custom market which had so dominated bike events the past ten years, but has now been so affected by the economic down turn. The Show will still include its popular Pro Builder and Street Custom classes, Cafe Bike / Bobber, and Sportbike/Racebike Clases, and now also include the growing Collector Bike Market for European and Japanese Classics. Show Entries will be placed in a Concours d' Elegance displays on grass and patio walkways in the the Queen Mary's Seawalk Village.
Among the top name custom bike builders expected to attend are former LA Calendar Show winners and featured FastDates.com Calendar bike builders Jim Giuffra and the Spokesmodels of AFT Metric Customs, Russell Mitchell / Exile Cycles, Shinya Kimura / Chabott Engineering, Richard Lock / Mule Motorcycles, Todd Silicato / Todds Cycle, Chris Redpath / MotoGPwerks and many more.
The selected partners for the 2013 LA Calendar Motorcycle Show include Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys, Barnett's Bike Craft Magazine featuring retro and cafe bikes, and Source Media's American V-Twin Group of magazines Hot Bike, Hot Bike Baggers and Street Choppers.
Headlining the included live Calendar Girl Music Festival entertainment again this year is the all-girl Japanese Rock Band 'Nylon Pink' who will just be returning from their world music tour. Also featured are two of America's most talented and beautiful signer songwriters. Lily Elise, a native Southern Californian, recently featured on NBC TV's The Voice, Season One - as a Finalist and member of Team Christina Aguilera, will be performing with her full band.
Joining them will be University of Montana graduate, professional model, actress and signer songwriter Sara Horvath who recently shot with producer Jim Gianatsis for the next FastDates.com Calendars. She is also featured in the latest ZZ Top music video - "I Gotsta Get Paid" as a drop-dead gorgeous hot rod racer. Sara will be hosting the Calendar Show's activities and performing her own music on stage.
While the Queen Mary's own gourmet restaurant culinary chefs will be preparing an incredible BBQ lunch menu that promises to exceed expectations of what is normally served at bike events. In all, it will be a full day of incredible bikes and builder, beautiful girls, music, food and beverages that will overwhelm all five of the human senses!

AFT Customs will be premiering two new customs at this year's Calendar Show. "'Senthoh' is based on a 1975 Honda CB750 SOHC, my first streetbike in high school and the first bike I ever customized, " explains Giuffra. "The name in Japanese means 'beginning' both for me as a builder back then, and for the AFT girls today. I'm keeping the bike's specification quiet for now, but I will tell you it is a cafe racer."
"Our second bike premiering is named 'Azumati' - its a VT750 Bobber/Street tracker being built on commission for the Jackson Rancheria Indian Casino. Asumati is a Miwuk Indian word meaning grizzly bear, the monarch of the forest. In Miwuk stories the bear is a symbol of great strength and courage. This bike will be just as fierce with a Yamaha R1 front end, Race Tech Piggyback Rear Shocks, a hidden radiator, CR450 front hub and brake."

LA Calendar Motorcycle Show History
The first Mikuni Calendar actually pubished in 1990 with my photo of Playmate Teri Lynn Doss on the cover holding a Mikuni carburetor, and inside the "Mikuni Calendar" featured nude model photography from Penthuse photographer Steven Hicks.
Then the next year, 1991 we decided to produce a Mikuni promotional calendar we could sell to the public and featurd Mikuni carburetors on all the top racing bikes of the era.
In 1992 we movied to Mikuni Calendar premier party to Mikuni American and invited all of the motorcycle media and mikuni distributors to attend, along with the models and big builders.
The Mikuni Calendar Motorcycle Show remained and grew at the Sanata Monica Airport through year 1999, but at that point the 1-day Show had become too big for the Museum Facility and the available parking.
Mikuni American still remains a Associate Sponsor of the Iron & Lace Calendar, and the Calendar Bike Building Championship at the LA Calendar Motorcycle Show Weekend.
