The Detroit Autorama at Cobo Center in downtown Detroit is one of the most prestigious custom car and hot rod shows in the country, but it also includes a competition for custom and customized bicycles, sponsored by Al Petri & Sons Bicycles in Lincoln Park and Woodhaven.
At this year's show, Feb. 25-27, MHPVA member Dave Moeller's Dragonwood won the first place trophy for "most creative" and second place in the "long and low" category.
Dave, who lives in Linden, estimates about 70 pedal-powered creations were entered at this year's show, This year's Autorama was the 59th annual.
