Tobacco Dock once again played host to the Bike Shed London event between Friday, 25 and Sunday, 27 May.
With a well-established reputation as Europe’s biggest independent annual show, there was a lot more on offer than just the huge selection of custom bikes.
Bike Shed also welcomed Ducati Scrambler to the show with a selection of customised bikes and 2018 models including custom versions by deBolex, Holographic Hammer and Survivor Customs.
The show was the first outing for the café racer inspired deBolex 1100, which features a fabricated fairing, tail and seat, a new top yoke, a relocated speedo and clip-ons. The Croydon based builders also brought their TT inspired 800 with full aluminium body work and revised wheels and suspension.
The show was an exhibition rather than a motorcycle trade fair, attractions included art, photography, live music, bars, great coffee and quality street-food, lounges, whisky bar, cigar lounge, barbershop, tattoos and much more.
As well as all that, the Bike Shed team (usually based at the Bike Shed MCC in Shoreditch) hand-picked over 200 custom bikes from builders in the UK, Europe and the USA, which were displayed without ropes or barriers.
The organisers said: “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.”
Dates have already been announced for Bike Shed London 2019, which will take place Friday - Sunday, May 24 - 26.
