Phoenix – The phase heard most often from those arriving to attend the MLB All-Star Game festivities has been:, “The 2011 MLB All-Star Game… But, it’s a dry heat.” That may be, but if the heat was a topic of discussion, it hasn’t stopped fans from turning out in large numbers for the FanFest being held at the Phoenix Convention Center.

Tens of thousands of fans poured through the doors, filtered into the lower regions of the Convention Center, and entered what can best be described as “Baseball nirvana.”

Passing through the event, it can often be a case of option overload… Where to start? The Baseball Hall of Fame Traveling Museum?... Negro Leagues display?.... Hunt Auctions and the memorabilia? Or, do I take in Rawlings, MLB Network, MLB Network Radio, and more?

But, along the way, there’s material displayed that, if not paying close attention, you might miss.

Such is the case for these images below.

This insane custom chopper designed by Bourget’s Bike Works was done for New Era Caps and is called the MLB – Stars and Stripes. The bike is being displayed around the country at key events and will donated to MLB who will auction it off with proceeds going to the “Welcome Back Veterans” program.

Specs:

Bike Design:

Bourget’s Python Super Stretch

47 degree front fork rake

Pearl white paint

Billet machined caps, bats, and baseballs. Foot pegs, hand grips, mirrors, air cleaner, lights, wheel covers, belt guard

The seat is something else… Designed to look like a baseball glove.

Logos? The red, white, and blue designs used on caps for Memorial Day and 4th of July.

Check it out.

Maury Brown will be reporting from the MLB All-Star Game festivities in Phoenix from Sat. to Tues
