Mark the dates of September 13th and 14th, 2013. Buddy's Bike Show will be part of the annual Belton MO, Fall Festival. Buddy Bronson started this tradition last year and as with all thing of this sort that he so quickly created, it was a smashing success. A group of his friends wanted to make sure that the tradition continued and that it would be done in Buddy's honor in a way that would have his stamp of approval.
The bike show is open to all who love their bicycles, whether it is an antique pennyfarthing, a classic Schwinn, an unusual tandem, a kustom, a rat rod, or whatever else you would like to show us.

We will be posting more information as the plans come together over the next few weeks.

And here are a few pics from last years show.

Thanks for putting this on. I had a great time. I'm honored to have won the Kustom class and hope to do some more work to the bike this winter. Next up is a bike for my wife. I hope to hear of some upcoming pub crawls in the future.
