Our Favorite Harley-Davidson Panheads From David Mann Chopperfest

Plenty of eye candy at the Ventura Fairgrounds

Every year we trek to the shores of Ventura, California in search of one thing: choppers. And the David Mann Chopperfest always delivers the goods.
Now in its 14th year, the Dave Mann Chopperfest event brings some of the most talented and creative bike builders to California from across the nation in order to honor David Mann, the talented and beloved motorcycle lifestyle artist who passed away in September 2004. Because of his love and passion for the two-wheeled lifestyle, Chopperfest carries on his legacy today. As for the show itself, we’re always blown away at the amount of creativity that goes into all of the builds on display at Chopperfest, and look forward to it every year.

There’s definitely no shortage of vintage iron as well as some of the latest and greatest works of rolling art at the Ventura Fairgrounds for Chopperfest. We sent Ryan Loughridge to grab a handful of the best Harley-Davidson Panheads that he could find at the show, and he definitely came back with the goods.
