The third annual Chop Meet in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. This year the event left the backyard and ventured out into the streets to play host to an estimated 400 chopper and vintage bike enthusiasts. The chop Meet kept peoples attention throughout the day with a morning swap meet, followed by an afternoon vintage cycle "show and grime", and was capped off by a ridiculous block party put on by Bernie's Machine Works. Folks from across Canada (Kimberley BC, Drayton Valley AB, Edmonton AB, Calgary AB, Prince Albert SK, Regina SK, Winnipeg MB, and even a crazy cat passing through from Toronto ON) met in our little prairie town of Saskatoon to talk trash, make trash and ride trash. Amazing time. Thanks to everyone who made it out young and old. Come back next year for more choppah mayhem.

I'm struggling to find words to describe how amazing this past weekend was for me. The chop meet was a HUGE success. So many amazing people. Old friends, new friends, I can't fathom how many hugs and high fives were thrown down. So much love. The Swap meet was a full house both for vendors and buyers. Tons of cool parts, old and new. The turnout for the Show was beyond what we expected. So many amazing bikes of all years, makes and models. And Bernie's after Party was out of hand. Beers were crushed in an ungodly fashion and the vibe was nothing but positive all night. The bands played till 2 am and people were literally dancing in the street. An impromptu "king of the street" leg wrestling tournament happened out of no where and got completely out of hand with winners bein hoisted on shoulders and cheers galore. It was unbelievable. From kids to grey beards everyone had such a good time. It was a ton Of work but I don't regret any of it and cannot wait to start planning for next year. I was blown away with how many people rode from all over the country to come hang in little ol Saskatoon for the weekend. I want to thank Jordan Epp for all the help with organizing, all the sponsors who graciously donated, everyone the helped out in any way and most importantly everyone for coming out and making it such a great day. We have an unbelievable scene out here. Jordan took this picture and tons more and ill start posting some shots of the day soon See you at Chop Meet 4.
