Europe's biggest and best independent annual motorcycle show, always on the last bank holiday weekend in May, celebrates the creativity of the new-wave and cafe-racer custom motorcycle culture, with over 240 curated custom motorcycles, unseen in the UK, from all over the world, plus live music, art, photography, and hand-made accessories alongside 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 from 17 sole-trading vendors, barista coffee, six proper bars and a pub, lounges with dozens of sofas, and lounge spaces, plus dockside seating, live music, 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 space, where everyone is invited and will get a warm welcome, whether they ride or not. 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 half, and the kids too.
Every element of this unique and privately-run event at London's iconic Tobacco Dock is hand-picked by the organisers (usually based at the Bike Shed Motorcycle Club in Shoreditch). The exhibited bikes are 'invitational' and selected from the best bike builders in the UK & Europe, with guests from the USA, 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 custom aficionados. Here is a Video of the 2018 show.
This year we've added a 250 seat cinema area, where you can enjoy films screening all weekend, including; On Any Sunday, TT-Closer to the Edge, Greasy Hand Preachers and the brand new documentary, Oil in the Blood - all included in your ticket price.
Expect a motorcycle show like no other.
