And the Boardwalk Makes It Two...



Shreveport bike builder Steve Culp heard his name multiple times today at the Boardwalk open show on Daytona Beach, Fla. The Boardwalk show, held on the famed Boardwalk next to the beautiful Atlantic Ocean on Daytona Beach, has played host to the best bike builders in the country for the past 25 years.










The show attracts national and international builders, who often find their unique and high-dollar creations featured in motorcycle magazines and on television.

More than 200 motorcycles, from new school choppers to extreme customs, vied for the trophies.
Steve was awarded First and Second place winner in the Vintage Custom for his Suzuki T-200 and T-500s, and for First in Stock Foreign for Liz's Suzuki T-500, which Steve has painted an original gold with metal flake.


Steve was also summonded to the stage for Third Place-Best in Show, a tremendous accomplishment considering the high caliber of motorcycles on display from award-winning bike builders and painters from around the U.S., Canada and Europe.


Perhaps the most entertaining part of the day was when Steve, wife Liz and friends Howard and Ford had to somehow get all the trophies back to the rental house. Steve made good use of his backpack...

...while Howard chose to use the 'hitch the trophy to the bicep' method. Ford favored the pirate-like belt bandolier trophy holder. Liz wisely chose to let the boyz juggle trophies while she rode behind, laughing at the looks the three were getting from other bikers and motorists along A1A.


Daytona Beach won't soon forget Shreveport, Louisiana, and Culp's beautiful Suzuki stable, and that's the way we like it.
