Posted on 30 Mar 2012 in Cafe Racer Motorcycles, Cruiser-Motorcycles, Harley-Davidson, Motorcycle Events, Powersports | 0 comments

As always, the Donnie Smith Show at St. Paul River Center, Minnesota was a blast! For those who have never been, The Donnie Smith Show is a real grass roots custom motorcycle show, with awesome builds showing up from all over the country. In addition to the show, the event boasts a huge swap meet area, that is almost as big as the main show arena. This year happened to be extra special for a few reasons.

The first, Dennis Kirk was proud to be title sponsor this year with a fabulous booth featuring two bikes, a decked out Harley Bagger with Kuryakyn accessories and a Cafe Racer CB 750 Super Sport Custom, bringing out the classic motorcycle era in our parts and accessory lines. Don’t forget to check out the Harley Davidson parts at Dennis Kirk when you’re working on your own project bike.

Secondly, the show celebrated its 25th year this season making it one of the longest running motorcycle shows in the country.

Lastly, to coincide with the show, Donnie Smith celebrated his 70th birthday. Happy Birthday Donnie!

The videos and photos below give you a good feel for the bike show this year. For more photos, check out the complete photo gallery on our FaceBook page. Leave your questions and comments below.

We caught up with Donnie Smith to show us his latest builds and share a little about the show.

Tattoo Bike: I like the front indicator lights on this one. They are hidden behind the tattoo and light up that section of the ink.
