On the first weekend of December, the fifteenth anniversary of CUSTOMBIKE-SHOW will take place. Customizers and motorbike enthusiasts from all over the world will once again meet up from December 6 to 8 2019 in Bad Salzuflen.
Over 1000 refined bikes can be admired within the four exhibition halls and more than 300 companies will present everything related to individualizing motorcycles on the 28000 square meters of showroom.
The final of the international German custom bike building championship will be spectacular. Around 300 participants will compete with their unique bikes for titles and trophies in 18 categories.
The special exhibition called »Halbstark«, which roughly translates to adolescent and has a whole exhibition hall dedicated to it, will definitely attract attention. Kreidler, Hercules, Puch and Zündapp were the letterings that once adorned countless children’s rooms. Even today, hearing a rattling reng-deng-deng or smelling a dash of two-stroke oil in the air is enough to send one to a phantastic world of nostalgia.
Bizarre, desirable, dreamlike as well as rare, individual and unreachable exhibits will be on display there. Exhibits that are always on two wheels, always possess 50 cc and always come with a small side of wistfulness.
The supporting program will guarantee great entertainment: color will be worked into skin within the tattoo area, the Tattoo-Starlet election will take place, musical entertainment will be provided by Rocco Recycle and risky maneuvers will be showcased in the steep face. Further attractions, such as body painting demonstrations, the election of Miss CUSTOMBIKE, motorbike premiers, several custom bike presentations and many more will complement the diverse program.
One of the CUSTOMBIKE-SHOW highlights is the European Biker Build-Off. Since 2007, two teams compete each year with one show bike respectively. The framework of the Biker Build-Off is as follows: both teams have three days to complete one custom bike each in front of the fair visitors. The winners will be awarded their prize on Sunday afternoon. At this year’s CUSTOMBIKE-SHOW, the Swiss Sandra and Markus Fröhlich (MCSands Motor Shop) will compete against their German opponents Stephan and Max A. Schneiderbanger (SS Cycle/ Fred Flitzefuß Karosseriebau) for the victory of the European Biker Build-Off 2019.
Both teams are well rehearsed and have already won different awards with their modifications at renowned motorbike and custom bike fairs. Technically, they both classify as »old school« and they share a passion for old Harleys. Husband and wife versus father and son – who will build the better custom bike?
It will not only be exciting for motorcycle builders but also for the visitors. Exclusive prizes with an overall value of more than 35.000 Euros will be raffled over three fair days. A Honda monkey, a Triumph Speed Twin and a Harley-Davidson Sportster Iron 883 will be among the prizes.
