When MotoGP comes to town, so do leagues of motorcycle fans. Could there possibly be a better time for a motorcycle show that highlights custom creations from some of the world’s most renown builders?
Rolling with these thoughts, Revival Cycles – a custom motorcycle shop in Austin – teamed up with Moto Guzzi and Circuit of the Americas last year to host the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show.
The show was completely free, and described as a “showcase of builders and craftsmen, combining skill, knowledge and ingenuity to create one-of-a-kind handcrafted machines. These artists add fuel to a revolution in the making, one that encourages people to explore the unrivaled satisfaction and joy of creating something with one’s own hands.”
Due its success, the show will return this year for the second-annual Handbuilt Motorcycle Show, presented by Moto Guzzi. The show has expanded to three days, and is set for April 10-12 in downtown Austin. It also remains free and open to all ages.
The 2015 Handbuilt Motorcycle Show will feature customs from builders including Roland Sands Deus Ex Machina, Shinya Kimura, and others.
Moto Guzzi USA says it will display the brand new Moto Guzzi Garage Kits in “Dapper”, “Dark Rider”, “Scrambler” and “Legend” variations. Separately, Moto Guzzi will showcase pre-production models of the highly anticipated Moto Guzzi Eldorado and Audace motorcycles, as well as the limited production V7 Racer Verde Legnano Special Edition.
Besides motorcycles, on display will be carefully curated selection of art from the Oil & Ink Print Expo with motorcycle-themed prints created by artists worldwide, and a handful of work from additional artists on display.
The American Motordrome Wall of Death will be back again this year, performing death-defying stunts on vintage machines, every hour, on the hour. Austin fine food and drink staples will be available for purchase, and The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show will have surprise activities planned for those in attendance, Moto Guzzi says.
The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show will again be the off-site event to visit during the MotoGP weekend, and RSVP is encouraged to ensure entry. To RSVP and find out more about The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show, and its sponsors visit http://www.handbuiltmotorcycleshow.com
