Concours Chairman Glen Egan shared, “In celebrating our 66th year, we felt it was an ideal time to honor both the legendary cars and lifestyle that are historically associated with an icon of American automobile culture: Route 66. Guests will have an opportunity to get an up-close look at perfectly restored examples of many of the incredible vehicles that could be found traversing the country on the “Mother Road in its prime”.”

The Concours was founded back in 1956 and from the beginning, they have presented extremely rare automobiles from every genre and marque. The beautiful 18th fairway of the Crystal Springs Golf Course has housed all forms of automobiles from hot rods to muscle cars and sports cars, motorcycles to elegant classic luxury models.

Speed Read: A garage-built Ducati 996 café racer and more

custom motorcycle news 190 745x497 1

The latest café racers, flat trackers, and electric scooters.
We kick things off with a feel-good story of a botched Ducati 996 custom job, rescued by a talented garage builder. Then we look at a dazzling Yamaha SR500 flat tracker from 20-year-old Moritz Bree, a dustbin-faired Honda Dax from K-Speed, and a BMW CE 04 scooter from Deus ex Machina.

Ducati 996 café racer by Jaron Hall
Ducati 996 by Jaron Hall Most people would balk at the idea of customizing a Ducati 996, but Utah-based garage builder Jaron Hall’s work on this 996 is nothing short of noble. That’s because when Jaron got his hands on the 996, it was in dire need of saving.

The Ducati’s previous owner had tried to turn it into a scrambler, so it came to Jaron with no fairings, a hacked subframe, and a smorgasbord of sketchy parts. Working after hours (he has a marketing day job), and taking on the entire build solo, Jaron turned the mongrel 996 into a high-class Italian café racer.
