BIKE SHED LONDON 2017
Tobacco Quay, Wapping Ln, London E1W 2SF, United Kingdom
Fri 26th (Preview/Press), Sat 27th & Sun 28th May
Europe's best independent annual motorcycle show, on the last bank holiday weekend in May, celebrates the creativity of the new-wave and cafe-racer custom motorcycle culture, with over 200 curated custom motorcycles, plus live art, photography, and hand-made accessories, along side selected brands, retailers and exhibitors. Set in London's historic and beautiful Tobacco Docks the event is also famous for it's superb hospitality with high quality, healthy street food, barista coffee, several proper bars, cigar & whisky lounges, live music, plus multiple live tattoo artists and a multi-chair traditional barbershop. This is NOT a motorcycle trade fair, it's an exhibition in a giant pop-up member's club, where everyone is invited. You'll want to hang-out all weekend, with plenty of space to chill-out and enjoy the crowd, the entertainment and the vibe. Bring your camera, bring your mates, your better halves and the kids too.
Every element of this unique and privately-run event is hand-picked by the organisers (usually based at the Bike Shed Motorcycle Club in Shoreditch). The exhibited bikes are 'Invitational' selected from the best bike builders in the UK & Europe, with guests from the US, without ropes or barriers to obscure the view or spoil your photos. Every brand, retailer, artist, photographer and exhibitor is selected and approved by us. Every barista, bar tender, burger (or salad-box) and coffee bean is tried & tested, and the organising staff are all bike-loving volunteers and members of the BSMC. The event is extremely family friendly, safe for kids, and enjoyable for non-bike-riders, as well as the custom aficionados.
Supported by the mainstream motorcycle industry, the event is sponsored by Ohlin's suspension, Rev'It apparel, and motorcycle manufacturer's; Triumph, Indian, Ducati, Yamaha and BMW, all exhibiting along side other manufacturers, like Honda, Fantic, Mutt, Herald, CCM and Royal Enfield, plus the pro-builders, amateurs and shed-builders alike.
Expect a motorcycle show like no other.
