The Guitarbike was on display for the day. The Guitarbike was built by Mr. Nelson in 1982 and ridden from San Francisco to New York and back as a promotion for his organization. The bike was featured in Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum and was part of the 1982 County Music Award Ceremonies. Players had the opportunity to sit on top of the Guitarbike and have their photos taken.
