London International Custom Show 2011 - A Review

OK this is the second custom bike show at Ally Pally - there was a change of organisers and Back Street Heroes stepped in to provide valuable support.  It was held over two days this year rather than three last year, and had shrunk down to the mediums sized hall and a sparsely filled half of the main hall.  In the end I only took one bike (Macbeth) as to be honest it is far easier to ride it there and ride it straight home with all that messing about with vans and queuing for a loading space.  As usual I failed to win anything, but I think I ended up in the top 10 which is creditable enough, given the bizarre nature of the voting system - which I wont go into here.  Nevertheless its always great to go to these places and see old friends and meet new ones like Adam and his crew from Untitled Motorcycles doing great BMW's.

Congratulations particularly to Shaw harley Davidson and Image Design for getting a 1st and 2nd placing in the Modified HD section.

Here are a few of my favourite pictures taken with 35mm Film and a beaten up old Pentax.

A Fine Day and some Press

Well the 24th of Feb has turned out to be a fine day, with temperatures nearing 20 degrees C I had to go out for a ride in the spring sunshine.  Whilst I was doing this I had the wonderful Nutty of Clean Bike Clinic giving 2 of my bikes a very nice detail clean in readiness for the International Custom Show tomorrow at Alexandra Palace.

Press wise in the post this morning came HOG magazine, which I must say is getting more interesting and diverse and far less of a sales mag for the Company - I was delighted to see a sneaky pic of Caesar Racer had crept into the advert for their new Iphone App.
In the March Issue of BSH there was a great feature on The Carole Nash Live Show at the NEC and they were kind enough to include a picture of Hamlet and Othello there too.

Next post will be about Ally Pally
