THE CHAIN GANG. It's hog heaven, and other makes too, at the BikeXpo Allentown (Pa.), Jan. 22-23. Custom-made bikes vie for "Best Chrome," "Best Engine," and other titles, while R.B. Gunn plays rhythm and blues and the (no joke) Texas Bikini Team struts the stage. Meet Motorcycle Hall of Fame "super builders" Dave Perewitz and Donnie Smith, pick up new gear, make a wish list at the dealer showcase and make sure to check out the pièce de résistance: "Spirit of Liberty," a bike entirely covered in copper from Lady Liberty.

Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. $13. About three hours from the Beltway at the Pennsylvania Expo Center, Allentown, Pa. 877-245-3976, www.KevMarv.com.
