The Wildest Rides of Laconia Bike Week

By -


Everywhere you look along Lakeside Avenue in Weirs Beach you can’t help but find something cool to stare at during Laconia Bike Week. This bike above started out as a 1978 AMF Harley-Davidson and was transformed into a Shovel/Panhead creation by a mad genius from Massachusetts.

It was by far the most intriguing motorcycle in town and crowds of onlookers could not help but stare in awe and bewilderment. The owner told me that he spent four months working on the “CHOPT” hog and spent many hours dreaming up how to put it all back together.

The red Schwinn bicycle badge behind the headlight cost $75 bucks alone and adds a nice touch to this seriously wild ride.


MALL COPS Paul Blart and his brother in blue protect and serve the 93rd running of Laconia Motorcycle Week. Be safe or be sorry if these guys catch you speeding.

You can find something old and new at the world’s oldest motorcycle rally, especially on Lakeside Avenue near the boardwalk. The t-shirt vendors nearly outnumber the bikers. Well, almost anyway.
