    Just to clear up the whole “first bike show in Detroit”, Petri and Sons Bike Shop has been hosting a bike show for several years at Detroit’s Autorama! It’s been mostly customs with a few vintage bikes along the way. Although Don and Deb (from Petris) won’t be having a show this year, a few FreakBikes will be joining the Rat Rodders in the basement of Cobo Hall for Autorama. Please swing by and introduce yourselves to us. We would be very interested in what you guys have going on.
    Also, I wish you guys all the luck on your upcoming show and I think a few of us FreakBikers are planning on attending.

    Hey! I got a question.
    Is there gonna be an actual bike show? By this I mean for custom bikes or is it just gonna be a day of showing the latest and greatest manufactured bikes?

    Jim, I’m not sure if the organizers will see your comments. It would be better to write on the Facebook page or send them at email at
