Join the release party of "The Next Issue" of THIS IS NOW! CHPRS MGZN on February the 15th at Short Cut Choppers in Hoorn. BARN FRESH is proud to be one of the new sponsors for THIS IS NOW! CHPRS MGZN.

 "It's gonna happen.....again!! Another magazine, another party!
February the 15th we'll all be at Short Cut Choppers in Ede, the Netherlands. Cross+eyed and Banished will perform their loud rock and roll, we'll be having a beer, and the next issue will be available for €5,-! How about that? You're al welcome from 8 PM and we'll party all night! And for all the hardcore chopper riders, you can park your bike right in front of da band! Well, Sort of!
Hope to see ya'll there!!"



The vintage chopper scene is very active these days. The Dutch Sik overheard a guy looking at some vintage chopper pics saying, "Man, I was surely born in the wrong time!" This kept Sik thinking. Why born in the wrong time? Here we are in the middle of it all, parties, shows and great friends building great choppers. I think he was born excactly at the right time! Forget the old days, This is Now! So he started his own chopper magazine.

The first issue came out in September 20013 and the new issue is almost going to the printer.
Here's a small photo impression of the first issue of this nice magazine.

THIS IS NOW! CHPRS MGZN is a new sponsor on Bubble Visor. Welcome on board.

Chopper Addict - part 2

much more here

Brittney Olsen wants your vote

"Hi, I am Brittney Olsen, 24 year old antique motorcycle racer and activist.

This last year I have had the pleasure of racing my 1923 Harley-Davidson J model in the Board Track Class in America and I will be racing this upcoming year as well!

Currently, I am among hundreds of motorsport racers competing in the Search for a Champion contest for a top sponsorship of $50,000 be awarded by Champion Spark Plug. Every person in the contest submitted a short video describing the type of racing that they do and why they deserve the sponsorship.  Below is the link to view and vote for our video entry's:

Brittney Olsen for Champion

People can vote once everyday until this upcoming Sunday, FEB 2!!!
Winning the grand prize or one of the runner up prizes would allow me to take my racing to the next level as well as sponsor other young riders interested in riding antique bikes. The 20th Century Racing Team has provided a 14 year old girl from Ohio with a 1948 Hummer to race in the 165cc Lightweight class at the Vintage and Antique Motorcycle Races for the 2014 season.
I could really use your help!

Best wishes,
Brittney Olsen20TH CENTURY RACINGAntique Motorcycle Racer & Activist"
