Some of the best looking custom motorcycles in the country will be on display at J&P Cycles in Anamosa, Iowa and that’s only part of the excitement. Celebrating its 38th anniversary, the free motorcycle rally includes motocross stunt shows, live music, food, beer and opportunities to support Camp Courageous, a camp for kids and adults with disabilities.
Like the title says, the Iowa Rally will also be the site of Hot Bike Magazine’s National Garage Build-Off for custom motorcycles. The competition is expected to draw the nation’s top garage-built custom bikes competing for $3,000 and an invitation to the annual Hot Bike Tour.
