DescriptionThis will be the third year of Waterford Motorcycle Festival and the Freewheelers MC have planned another extravaganza of Music, Motorcycles, Chrome and Leather and it will all happen on the weekend of July 11th &12th 2014.
This years event will be similar to last years in that The Main stage will be in John Roberts Square where the main band “The Unusual suspects” will perform from 2.30pm to 4.30 pm on July 12th. The Boobs & Balls charity Run in aid of Waterford’s “Solas Centre” will arrive at JRS at 2pm with 400 Motorcycles in tow which adds huge excitement to the event.
This year we will have 2 specially built replica choppers on display the”Captain America” and “Billy Bike” choppers from the Movie “Easyrider” owned by two Waterford Freewheeler members John and Martin O’Shea. These bikes are very special and the movie Easyrider (1969) was the first Hollywood movie to bring the whole custom sub culture to light to an unexpectant world and has had great influence on biker culture and indeed the Freewheelers MC.
