Show Notes

Welcome back to the “because, bikers matter!” ® Podcast. I'm your host, David "Vegas" Shuman, and in this episode, we had the pleasure of speaking with the legendary Jim Lynch, the godfather and founder of Revelation 1 Concepts and Bike Show Mafia Bike Shows. Jim is not only a custom bike builder but also a pivotal figure in the motorcycle community.

Jim shared his journey with us, starting from his early days riding dirt bikes in the mountains to his close encounter with a deer at high speeds that led him to slow down and explore different avenues in biking. He talked about his transition from trucking to transporting bikes for dealerships along the East Coast and how the COVID-19 pandemic shifted his focus towards organizing bike shows.

The highlight of the episode was Jim's recount of the inception of Revelation One Concepts as a trucking company and its evolution into a hub for bike shows, especially after the success of their first event at the Beaver Bar in Daytona in 2021, which saw an impressive turnout of 237 bikes.

Jim also delved into the challenges and triumphs of hosting bike shows, including the Rally on the Levy in Charleston, West Virginia, and his plans for future events. He emphasized the importance of community and giving back, particularly through charity work and supporting veterans.

We also discussed our exciting partnership with Motorcycle Safety Lawyers as the season sponsor for Jim's bike shows, and the additional prizes and swag that participants can look forward to, including special creations from Red Glare Bullet Creations for the winners.

Listeners can reach out to Jim and his team through their social media pages on Facebook and Instagram at Revelation 1 Concepts and Bike Show Mafia, or via email for inquiries about bike builds or show participation.

As we wrapped up the episode, we touched on the upcoming Combat Heroes Bike Fest and Thunder by the Bay events, as well as the big plans for Daytona, including a trike show and audio competitions.

It was an honor to have Jim on the show, and we're thrilled about the partnership and the future of bike shows. Remember to like, share, and keep an eye on our social media for upcoming special guests and events.
