TRM MO/So. IL 2022-March - Page 6


By Dennis Martin It ’ s been a little over two years since the last Cycle Showcase STL event . I would assume with the strangle hold the mandates had over motorcycle events in the area , it made perfect sense to postpone the next event . As you can see , this event didn ’ t lose its mojo in having cycles to impress the audience . Randy Noldge had plenty of extra time to search for even more extreme builds across the country and he certainly accomplished his goals . The collection of 50 cycles this year is from a huge area covering the Great White North ( Canada ) to Miami and Nevada to New York . Cool is cool no matter where they ’ re from .
As you may know , Randy chooses different locations to host Cycle Showcase . This year the space was located within the City Foundry STL development which had a great selection of restaurants and adult beverages to choose from . The cycles were displayed in the western two units of this century old manufacturing building . This place certainly has a raw character and was perfect for this event . The natural lighting coming from the wall of industrial windows added to the raw nostalgia of the chopper era while making the paint of the newer cycles glisten in the sun .
Artistry is an important part of the motorcycle world . This would include motorcycle paint , tattooing , and photography . Every Cycle Showcase has incorporated a look into these three aspects . The showcase area included a few of the talented painters as well as some of the brilliant tattoo artists in the area . The photo gallery featured the renowned photographer , Michael Lichter . This event has something for everyone that walks through the doors .
