It’s always a buzz to catch up with our readers and reveal the latest custom builds from deep within the skunk-works that is S.H.A.M.E. (Sewickley Home for Aged Motorcycle Engines, by the way.) We’ll be doing just that when the Progressive International Motorcycle Show rolls into the Walter Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. come January 6, 7 and 8. Our stalwart staffers will be on hand to answer your questions, queries and yes, talk turkey about nuts, bolts and all things shiny, two-wheeled and fast ¬†for all three days. Plus, you’ll get first glimpse of our nearly-completed Middleweight Mash-Up Honda CB500F custom straight from the pages of CRM. Our long-term Yamaha SR400, fresh back from its record, 100.3 MPH top-speed run will also be on display, proving small displacement and high velocity needn’t be strangers. There’s new T-shirts including one for the girls plus a chance to sign up to win a free year’s subscription along with a new set of Stomp Grip tank pads and a roll of Design Engineering exhaust heat wrap, just for stopping by.
