and nothing is cooler than custom motorcycles! That’s why Epiphone and
Gibson USA were sponsors of the Music
City Bike Show January 8th and 9th at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds in
The all-indoor custom bike show featured customized bikes,
hand-built bikes and radical choppers from all over the United States from
some of the country’s most famous builders. The show was literally packed
both days with motorcycle enthusiasts and one lucky attendee took away an
