CUSTOMBIKE SHOW 2015 – The world's largest trade fair for converted motorcycles celebrates a record number of visitors

Custombike Show 2015-1-6Almost 32,000 people flocked to Bad Salzuflen on the first weekend of December 2015 - the CUSTOMBIKE-SHOW thus confirmed its position as the world's leading trade fair for motorcycle customizing. 

The CUSTOMBIKE SHOW took place for the eleventh time in Bad Salzuflen from December 4th to 6th, 2015. Three exhibition halls, 25,000 square meters, 300 exhibitors, over 800 radically converted motorcycles from all over the world and a European BikerBuild-Off champion from Belarus; The trade fair is the ultimate heart rate monitor for renovation trends. Marilyn Stemp from the American Iron Works Magazine also states: “If you want to play on an international level, you have to come here.”

The European Biker Build-Off 2015 saw the closest result in the history of the conversion contest.

With a lead of just seven votes, Yuri Shif secured what is probably the most important trophy in the custom scene. His board tracker, which was entirely handmade in the style of the 1920s, caused enthusiasm among visitors and specialists. But the creation by Fabian Müller from Germany is no less spectacular. His “Deep Throat” – a very elegant rigid frame bike with a real Shovelhead engine – is a real winner, not only in view of the close public voting.

For the participants in the International Custombike Championship Germany (ICCG), it was about fame, honor and trophies in 16 categories - with every victory being like an accolade in the Champions League of international motorcycle construction.

The supporting program was complemented by the no less spectacular show and action offering, such as the Miss CUSTOMBIKE election or the steep wall shows, where Henny Kroeze and his daughter thrilled the audience with breathtaking performances.
