July 29th, 2017 REDWOOD RUMBLE

Basket Case Magazine is proud to bring the Redwood Rumble to Northern California on July 29, 2017.  As the first custom motorcycle show of this kind to grace Santa Cruz, CA, this all-day event will start with a gathering at a Ben Lomond skate park, followed by a pack ride through the redwoods and along the northern California coastline to the destination of our event. The actual event begins at 2 pm and will include a custom motorcycle show along with live music from Dusted Angel, Stellar Corpses, Fight till Death, Ground Score and Pete n repete. Our event would not be complete without our amazing vendors, food, swap meet, and a huge raffle. Did we mention that the venue has a full bar inside? All your favorite things to guarantee a good time!

Santa Cruz, California is an idyllic setting for a chopper show, with tons of great riding along the coast and in the redwoods.  Our goal is to celebrate the diverse community of builders and riders here in Northern California, who build bikes and ride the living hell out of them.  The Redwood Rumble will be held at the Santa Cruz Portuguese Hall, located at 216 Evergreen St. Santa Cruz, CA. 95060.

Curious to know if your chopper or rubbermount has what it takes to enter? Of course it does, there is a class for everything in our show. Below you will find the list of classes for the chopper and rubbermount divisions of the Redwood Rumble bike show.
