"Do you have a build that's been dragging, did life get in the way? It's time to dust it off! Once again, we are putting a focus on stalled projects and giving people support and a reason to turn out a show-quality bike they can be proud of!

First off, everyone always wants to know what they will get or how the winner is chosen. So let's clarify a few things it's not a competition all 12 selected builders get support via gift cards. There are technically 12 winners, chosen by our team with a lucky 13 winner announced the day after the first 12. The 13th is always a unique background story or someone in hardship, hence the lucky 13th!

Who can win? We focus on garage builders and small shops with two employees or less. We want to help people finish builds where life got in the way, giving them support and the camaraderie of connecting with 12 other builders via our builder group DM. You will have about six months to complete your build in time to attend the run. (Details to come about the run)

What you win is gift cards from a long list of great companies that have supported the #greasydozenbuildercollective to name a few: Old Bike Barn, Biltwell, Lowbrow Customs, Led Sled Customs, Indian Larry Motorcycles, ChopCult, and S&S Cycle. The Greasy Dozen Builder Collective has always been about giving back to the average joe that supports these companies, with support going directly to the builders from our awesome sponsors. Part of the DNA of the GD is that it's about giving back to the community, not monetizing it. The event its self, including fireside giveaways, cookout, preparty, bands, and camping, is 100% funded by We have given away over $100,000 in prizes and support this way, and while its work to put it on, its a labor of love to give something back to the motorcycle community." - The Greasy Dozen

Good Luck, everyone.

A note from Jim Dean

"I attended the Chopper Fest last year with my good friend Robert Cook and a custom three-wheeler he made. We traveled from Kansas City and had a great time. Sadly Robert passed away earlier this year. The Chopper Fest was on his bucket list for many years, and I'm fortunate to have made the trip with him. Robert and I were best friends for over 40 years, and our trip to Ventura is now one of my most treasured memories. Attached is his favorite picture from the show. Best of luck with this year's show." - Jim Dean

Rest In Peace, Robert.
