The Bike Shed – London
An unmissable date for anyone vaguely interested in motorbikes is the forthcoming Bike Shed event in London.
These good peeps are following up there successful early summer do – where they showcased a lovely edit of some of the best pro and amateur custom builds out there. The October event will be a season closer – and will feature a delectable selection of bikes – from maestros like Shinya Kamura and Untitled (see above) – to new kids on the block like Cornwall’s CMBL.
We’ve been noticing this summer that custom bikes are becoming a real presence on the streets of London. It hasn’t quite reached the levels of San Francisco yet – but we reckon the underground will be overground and leather jockeys will be wombling free all over the shop. We’re all for it. Get creative with your daily ride.
Don’t just settle for what the corporations spoon feed you!
