Konawerks Grumpy's Bike Show 2013 - Part 1

The 3rd Annual Konawerks Grumpy's Bike Show (KGB III) was held earlier this week at Grumpy's Bar & Grill in Minneapolis.  The show is a fundraiser for the Minnesota Prostate Cancer Coalition so I gladly entered my Sportster in the show for $5 and bought some extra raffle tickets.  This was the first time I had attended this event.  I got there early so I headed inside to grab some food and a beer while the crowd built up.  When I came back out the crowd was much bigger than before.

Walking around the parking lot, I noticed a pair of shaft-driven chops. 

I don't recall seeing a shaft-driven hardtail before but here one was.

I liked the helmet stickers.

Here you can see a creative use for an old metal lunchbox but I'd love to know what was on the lunchbox before it was spray painted.

Nice graphic on this dual-sport Honda:

Lots of welded accents on this hardtailed Honda:

And another Honda.  This one is Jon's:

I mentioned buying raffle tickets.  There were some good prizes up for grabs.  I put all my tickets in the jar for the Lowbrow Package (I didn't win).

In that same room, you could check out the trophies (spoiler alert: I didn't win one of those either):

Lots more photos from the show are up next.

That black shaft driven bike is one of my other bikes.

Nice! I'm assuming you're talking about the hardtail? So you just ride a bike to the show, hitch a ride home, ride another bike to show, and repeat until your garage is empty? That sounds like too much work.

Yeah the black hardtail Suzuki. No my girlfriend just got her license and is riding that bike now. This was her first time riding to a bike show and was pretty excited about it.
