Street Chopper's surviving relic from their 1976 April issue at the Garage Co. party June 23rd, 2012.
And note, even Street Chopper was conducting "Versus" matches back in the day;
Bike Shows; California Chops Vs. New York Chops
I guess we know who, in the end (i.e. today) the winner is?
California (no matter how much you don't care "how" we do it) comes out on top. New York has it's history and claims, this is true, but for the overall "winner takes all" category of Bike Shows, where the "shit goes down" California bangs the High School Prom Queen every year!
