From December 5th to 7th, 2014, almost 1,000 refined machines will be on display in the four exhibition halls and more than 300 companies will be presenting everything related to customizing motorcycles on the 28,000 square meter exhibition area.
The finale of the International German Championship in Custom Bike Building will be spectacular, with around 300 participants competing with their unique bikes for titles and trophies in 18 categories.
The supporting program guarantees the best entertainment: Henny Kroeze and his team will race along the steep face with breakneck maneuvers. Miss CUSTOMBIKE election , motorcycle world premieres , the Build-Da-Fukker contest , numerous custom bike presentations and much more, round off the varied show program.
The European Biker Build-Off is one of the highlights of the CUSTOMBIKE SHOW.
Since 2007, two teams from different nations have been competing against each other, each with a show bike. This time Sergio Bayarri (Sbay Motor Company/Spain) and Bill Dodge (Bling Cycles/USA) were supposed to face each other and build their bikes live in front of the audience during the three days of the trade fair.
Ten days before the start of the trade fair, the bad news came: the parts for Bill's Panhead were stuck at customs in Orlando - with no chance of being released in time. However, an adequate replacement was found within a very short time: The North German Harley specialist Arno Kruth from Toxic-Bikes stepped into the breach and will start building a custom Harley with his crew just in time for the start of the trade fair.
Respect, because his opponent from Spain has already won some well-known prizes at European level and had several months to prepare for the Biker Build-Off. You can be excited…
It will not only be exciting for the motorcycle builders, but also for the visitors. Exclusive prizes with a total value of over 25,000 euros will be raffled off on the three days of the trade fair. The prizes include a nine-day motorcycle trip to the USA on Friday, a Yamaha XV950R on Saturday and a Harley-Davidson Sportster XL883N Iron on Sunday.
The big anniversary after-show party will take place on Saturday, December 6th in the Kurhaus Bad Salzuflen: CUSTOMBIKE visitors will be really warmed up with numerous live acts and strip shows! But if you would like to celebrate with us on Friday, you are cordially invited to toast the 10th anniversary of the successful TATTOO-EROTICA magazine with the TATTOO-EROTICA models.
