That should be great! (And packed.) Will definitely check it out, and if we were driving I'd drag the Hunley down there.

I think it will be popular. The VJMC magazine has started showing more custom and modified bikes in the last year. I personally think it is boring to attend a show and see 30 show room condition Honda CB750s in a row. I'd rather see a garage build where a guy used what he had available, some skills and a good imagination.

Am I remembering correctly that way back in the day the VJMC actively shunned anything modified? It's one of the reasons DTT was launched - there wasn't much of a home for those of us willing and eager to take a grinder to a stock survivor CB550 or XS650 etc.

I dropped my membership back then. I didn't start back until the magazine started have custom/modified bike features. The same with the Antique Motorcycle Club of America (AMCA). When I was in Daytona this past March for the shows/swap there were more modified bikes in the VJMC show than stock.

DTT BOTM WINNER
I've typically avoided the VJMC stuff for this very conversation. I went to an event a few years back on my CB750 chopper and I felt like a Goth chick at a Southern Baptist wedding.

Must be some new blood in the VJMC now that are good with mods. Not everyone needs pure resto or 100% stock bikes. I like all the flavors.

Glad to see they've evolved - I can appreciate the position of purists who love a concourse restoration - I love original bikes and have restored a few.

But it was militant back in the day and that put me off.
