FOR THE PEOPLE WHO LOVE MOTORCYCLES, AND THE PEOPLE WHO LOVE PEOPLE WHO LOVE MOTORCYCLES…

Custom Motorcycles, Art, Photography, Live Music, Bars, Great Coffee & Quality Street-food, Lounges, Whisky Bar, Cigar Lounge, Barbershop, Tattoos and much more. 

Europe’s biggest and best independent annual motorcycle show, on the last weekend in May, celebrates the creativity of the new-wave and cafe-racer custom motorcycle culture, with over 250 curated custom motorcycles, unseen in the UK, from all over the world, plus live music, art, photography, and hand-made accessories alongside selected brands, retailers and exhibitors.

Set in London’s historic and beautiful Tobacco Docks the event is also famous for it’s superb hospitality with high quality street-food from dozens of sole-trading vendors, barista coffee, multiple proper bars and a pub, lounges with dozens of sofas, and lounge spaces, plus dockside seating, live music, live tattoo artists, and a traditional barbershop.

This is NOT a motorcycle trade fair, it’s a family-friendly exhibition in a beautiful historical venue, where peple from all walks of life are invited and everyone gets a warm welcome, whether they ride a motorcycle or not. You’ll want to hang-out all weekend, with plenty of space to chill-out and enjoy the crowd, the entertainment, the eye-candy and the vibe.

Bring your camera, bring your mates, your better half, and the kids too.

Every element of this unique, privately-run event at London’s iconic Tobacco Dock is hand-picked by the organisers (based at the Bike Shed Motorcycle Club in Shoreditch). Every exhibited motorcycle is ‘invitational’ and selected from the best bike builders in the UK & Europe, with guests from the USA, without ropes or barriers to obscure the view or spoil your photos. Every brand, retailer, artist, photographer and exhibitor is selected and approved by us. Every barista, bar tender, burger (or salad-box) and coffee bean is tried & tested, and the organising staff are all bike-loving volunteers and members of the BSMC. The event is extremely family friendly, safe for kids, and enjoyable for non-bike-riders, as well as custom aficionados. Here is a Video of the 2019 show.

Expect a motorcycle show like no other.

BIKE SHED IN OLD ST, SHOREDITCH (…NOT the venue for our London show)

Don’t mix up the venues… Our annual SHOW is at Tobacco Dock. Our home – The Bike Shed Motorcycle Club – is at 384 Old St in Shoreditch, about 10-15 minutes away from Tobacco Dock.

 

The Shoreditch club/shop/restaurant is open as usual over the show weekend, and it will be open till 2am on Saturday night. Because of the show we will be very busy (but we do have loads of room) so if you intend to come for a breakfast, lunch or dinner, we’d strongly recommend that you book a table to avoid a wait.
