ST. PAUL, MINN., MARCH 29-30—The 27th annual Donnie Smith Bike Show took over St. Paul’s RiverCentre and brought winter-weary motorcycle fans a dose of two- and four-wheeled eye candy as they welcome in the 2014 riding season.
New this year to the usual mix of custom motorcycles, endless vendors and massive swap meet was a 22-class car show that brought hot rods, rat rods, muscle cars and clean classics from across the States to the adjoining Roy Wilkins Auditorium. Other highlights for the Midwest’s largest motorcycle show included a 35-class bike show featuring both Pro and Open classes, the annual Donnie Smith Chopper Class Challenge, unveiling of the 2014 Sturgis Legends Ride auction bike built by Sturgis Brown High School and much more. If you weren’t lucky enough to make it this year, we’ve got you covered with a 70-image photo gallery below!
**Oh, and keep an eye out for the June issues of Thunder Press for a full wrap-up of the 27th annual Donnie Smith Bike & Car Show, the Donnie Smith Chopper Class Challenge and Sturgis Brown High School’s 2014 Legends Ride auction bike build.
