Mods vs. Rockers Chicago 2012

The legendary Mods vs Rockers Vintage Motorcycle & Scooter Rally is happening Friday June 15th and Saturday June 16th. Whether you’re a mulish mod, a radical rocker, or just a moto enthusiast who wants a glimpse at this eclectic british subculture, this rally is not to be missed. In fact, it is much more than just a rally. Started in 2005, this is a weekend long “experience” that has grown into the largest annual event of it’s kind, in the world.  Hundreds of deliciously diverse custom two-wheeled machines will line the streets as the event begins Friday at 6PM with the “Rumble at the Ace” ride. You might want to rest up prior to attending, as the festivities will continue well into the wee hours of the morning at the All Nighter Soul Dance Party (hosted by: Mayday Scooter Club).

Saturday begins with an English Breakfast Reception at 10 AM followed by a Mods vs. Rockers run at 12:30 PM, to nationally acclaimed Whiskey Bar Delilah’s. Once you’re there you can take in the vintage motorcycle and scooter show, where motorcycles and scooters in 16 categories from vintage to modern to custom will be featured. Next stop, the Rumble Run to The Bottom Lounge to take in the “Rockabilly Riot”…featuring a Pin-Up Contest, and a killer musical line up that includes “Stray Cat” Lee Rocker.

With an “All Access” ticket price of $25 there is no reason not to put on your leather (or suit) and polish up your Triumph (or Vespa) and kick off summer Rocker style in the windy city!
