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.
