1st Annual Joe’s Minibike Reunion Re-Cap

The 1st Annual Joe’s Minibike Reunion was held this past Saturday, August 4th at CV Park in La Crescenta, CA and attracted well over 300 total spectators to this beautiful setting in the Southern California foothills! “ The event met and surpassed all of my expectations for a first time endeavor. We had a little over 60 paid minibike participants and almost double that amount when we took into account those bikes that attended, yet didn’t register. We had a large contingent of minibike owners who just wanted to “check us out first” and we are extremely excited about the fact they will be return as participants next year!” stated Joe Sebergandio, the Joe in Joe’s Minibike Renuion.

The event featured an on site minibike build up and give away, the Honda of Glendale Tech Tent, Chip Foose’s private Taco 22 and vintage Clinton powered go cart on display, Miss Minibike meet and greet, along with a Bike Corral and Swap Meet areas offering both minibikes and parts for sale.
