Motorcycles of all years, all makes, and any style are invited to participate in the 7th Annual Custom and Classics Bike Show at Iron Pony Motorsports in Columbus, Ohio. This is a FUN informal, ride-in bike show with an emphasis on the folks behind the bikes! We have revamped things this year with more activities, entertainment, and things to see / do – while you’re at the show.

Best off – we are doing more to showcase the builders and folks working on the bikes. We are inviting custom shops and riding organizations to come out and take part in the show.

ALSO – you can schedule DEMO RIDES through Iron Pony as well – and they have more than just a few lines of bikes for you to check out while your bike is on display!

PLEASE ADD THIS EVENT – and stay tuned for updates, etc.. as this is where we will post them.


As motorcyclists, bikers, or whatever you want to call yourselves – our bikes are often our pride and joy. In many cases, We spend hours after hours, and often dollars after dollars making them our own personal ride. With all that time and effort, why not bring them out and showcase what you’ve done? To that end, we present the REASONS TO RIDE Championship Bike Show Series.

The RTR Championship Bike Show Series features local, regional, and nationally recognized shows that all builders and bike owners are encouraged to participate in. Vintage, metric, v-twin, customs, restored antiques, “resto-mods”, trikes, and radicals – they are all welcome to the show. Each bike show is also a qualifier for our Championship Shows – which traditionally include OHIO BIKE WEEK and other major regional rallies or shows.

The vast majority of these shows are RIDE-IN shows, meaning that the bikes are expected to be ridden and a little bit of road dust is fine. We don’t split hairs over trailering in bikes, but we do require that all bikes must be functioning. They must start and be able to be safely ridden on the road.

Most of the shows include voting by event attendees and weighted judges scores. We use this approach to make certain we include the “people’s choice” as well as a professional eye – preventing it just being a popularity contest. Some shows, though, are Judged Shows – with the guest votes simply going towards the People’s Choice Awards.
All Thunder Roads Shows feature trophies and placards to recognize the bikes and winners, with special prizes being added in some shows in consideration of the location and hosts. The Best of Show Bikes and TOP Class Winners from the Bike Show Series are then invited to take part in the Championship Shows.


All shows this year include a CUSTOM PAINT class for bikes to be considered under. You can enter your bike in just this category – or you can add it as a second classification. There is a discounted fee for adding the second category.
