Roland Sands cooked up another event for the record books. We caught wind of the success of the first ever Moto Beach Classic and knew we had to jump in on the action! With the announcement of the 2018 Moto Beach Classic dates, we made sure to mark it on our calendars. Old Bike Barn sent their lead photographer Mike Vandegriff out to sunny California to document this legendary event and we couldn't be happier with the results! If you enjoy motorcycles, racing, live music, and festival environments, then this is the event for you! Check out our image gallery below and make sure to mark those calendars for Oct. 26-27th for this year's event!
“The inaugural Moto Beach Classic started out as a wild idea from the mind of Roland Sands and crew and developed into a Southern California motorcycle cultural explosion.” (www.MotoClassicEvents.com) And this year’s MBC, in partnership with the Surf City Blitz, took that wild, original idea and turned it into a stellar success that rocked the worlds of both motorcycles and music. This year's sold out, two-day festival was the perfect blend of California culture including: Super Hooligan National Championship presented by Indian Motorcycles, BMW Salty Sprint Races, the ultimate punk-rock lineup (The Offspring, Social Distortion, Pennywise, Rancid, Suicidal Tendencies, Bad Religion, FEAR, TSOL, etc), West Coast Board Rider surf competitions, Dunlop’s Stacyc Kids course, Bell Helmets Stunt Show, Moto Classic Bike Show by Vance & Hines, Architects of Inspiration Art Show presented by Husqvarna, an epic vendor village, and every other rad SoCal platform you could possibly imagine. And let's not forget about the reveal of the RSD Hooligan + Indian Motorcycle FTR 1200; a beast of a bike that had everyone drooling.
