Friday evening saw the kick off of the street festival component of Motoblot, with booths set up and more live music at Cobra Lounge / All Rise Brewing. Yet things didn’t really get into full swing until Saturday morning. Weekend baby! The gates opened and soon our section of Fulton was brimming with bikes, cars, scooters and folks there to take it all in. Given that it was also Pride weekend and the SCOTUS marriage ruling had just come down, we decided to celebrate right along. At our booth we had Dani handing out swag and sporting her pride umbrella. Then over at the Iron Moto Challenge, we had MJ in his now signature build uniform transforming a humble Triumph Bonneville T100 into a killer custom machine right on stage.
“We wanted to show people that you don’t have to be a pro builder to customize your bike, you just need the determination to do it yourself or head to your local Triumph shop to get started. The response has been great, and now our work is even featured on the website’s summer campaign along with the other Iron Moto Challenge contestants.”
Last year was the inaugural year for Motoblot (formerly Mods vs. Rockers Chicago) and along with it, the first year for the Iron Moto Challenge. Sponsored by Triumph and British Customs, the idea is for the local Triumph dealers to go head-to-head and customize a Triumph in one sitting — right out on stage for all the festival crowds to watch. , which outright thanks to killer support from all our fans on Facebook. That bike had incredible, elaborate paint work from Blue Moon Customs and the boys in the Motoworks service department even figured out how to make it breathe fire.
“It was a true honor to compete in the Iron Moto Challenge, we couldn’t be happier with how things turned out,” said Motoworks Chicago founder Johnny Scheff. “Our goal was to show people how much creativity can go into a bike in a relatively short period of time when you’re working with British Customs bolt-on parts.
