2012 Donnie Smith Bike Show, 1st Place Open Class

A message from Kevin Baas:
“The bike was entered in the professional builders Open Class and took first place honors. I am proud of the students hard work and as always the show was a great way to promote the good things going on in Bloomington schools.”

2011/2012 Kennedy Chopper Class going strong

The school year started out by Mr Baas bringing in four of his Vintage Harley-Davidson motorcycles for the class to study and explore.  History was covered first so these vintage bikes were a great way for the students to see how the Harley has evolved through the years.

The new school year is under way and we are wrapping up Trimester 1 already.  This first tri was very successful as the students creativity has been put to the test as they created many cool and unique parts for the class built bikes.  Our group teams have been working hard to get the bikes ready for the Donnie Smith Invitational bike show this march at the Excel Energy Center.  Included in our normal class of guys this year was the awsome addition to four creative and talented female students!  Kelsey, Andee, Justine, and Amy are doing a great job ladies, we look forward to seeing how your bikes turn out at the show!!
