J+P Cycles Iowa Rally National Garage Build-Off
The J+P Cycles' Iowa Rally celebrates its 38th anniversary with Hot Bike Magazine's National Garage Build-Off for custom motorcycles. The competition is expected to draw the nation's top custom bikes competing for $3000, and an invitation to the annual Hot Bike Tour, where their motorcycle will go up against famous builders in the Invitational Build-Off.
Located at J+P Cycles' original store, the free rally includes motocross stunt shows from Cowboy Kenny's Steel Rodeo Tour, live music throughout the weekend, food, beer and opportunities to support Camp Courageous, a camp for kids and adults with disabilities. The National Motorcycle Museum is also opening a new exhibit, Dirt Riding in America. Located near the rally in Anamosa, visitors will be among the first to experience the exhibit and will see more than 450 vintage bikes on display in the museum's permanent collection.
The Iowa Rally is a chance for riders to get up-close and personal with reps from more than 50 companies offering motorcycling products. Visitors will see the newest motorcycle accessories from companies like Vance Hines, Kuryakyn, Dunlop, Klock Werks, Metzler, Mustang Seats, Rinehart Racing and many more. Riders can even have selected parts installed on their bikes on site.
Welcoming communities and great riding are key elements to every memorable rally and the Hawkeye State offers both. The event is only ten minutes from historic Grant Wood Scenic Byway and 45 minutes from the beautiful Great River Road along the Mississippi River.
