Thank you to our sponsors

This year's Love thy Chopper was the best show that we have thrown and it wouldn't have been possible without all the help of our sponsors and vendors. Landmark Tattoo and Nik Pew were a huge help and one of the main sponsors/organizers for this year's show with the design of artwork and the sale of tickets and merchandise out of their shop on 13th in Capitol Hill. Adelitas Cocina y Cantina and owner Brian Rossi were the other main sponsors/organizers providing the food and beverage along with El Guapo Lounge where we kicked off the ride up to Wilderness on Wheels. Martelli produce donated the corn and watermelon to go along with the Adelitas tacos.
LAbriola machine put in the motor and fabrication work on the Sportster we gave away and then it was over to Ernie at Full Metal Jacket Powder Coats to lay on the flawless black. 2 Wheelers mc shop off 38th helped out with parts and Biffs custom paint handled the color provided by Painters Supply. Matt and the guys at Blacktop Choppers got it all put together with the help of Randall Nelson and his crazy amount of knowledge for anything Harley. After all that it had to get down the road and Sun Harley took care of the tires for us.

Dedication Tattoo off south Broadway was generous enough to donate a gift certificate which went home with JG who won Best Sportster along with one of the trophies that Dave Barker at Speed Metal made for this year's show. 

Travis Heacock,
The Speed Merchant,
Loser Machine,
Chvrch of Choppers, FTWco,
74's Forever,
Rocky Mountain Harley Davidson,
Irish Rich/ Shamrock Fabrication, 
Lisa Ballard and Chop Cult, 
The Mighty Awful(Mike Nielson),
Super Screenprint,
ATS Screenprint,
Fortaleza Tequila and
Black Market Art all gave a tremendous amount of time and merchandise to help make this year's Love thy Chopper what it was.

30 black, Hammer and grind, Lucas Lines and Designs and JP Rodman Paintworks did an awesome job bringing their individual talents as vendors and showing off their skills to the crowd.

After the vendors showed their stuff the band's did not disappoint. Cloudcatcher killed it with their guitar driven set followed by the hard dark sounds of Khemmis. Space in Time finished it up with a set that you will hear about for awhile. If you missed these 3 bands then that's just it, you missed out, they rocked this year's show.

Love thy Chopper could not be what it has become without the support of all our sponsors, vendors and everyone that came out to help Wilderness on Wheels. Thank you all for continuing the best chopper show in Colorado. See you next year?
