Bike Shed London preview


Bike Shed London is one of the UK’s biggest custom bike shows and manages to not only be impossibly cool but also keep delivering the customised motorcycle goods each year.

The 2019 event is the 10th running of the show at Tobacco Dock in London’s East End where custom bikes from across the UK and the world will be shown.

The show will run from Friday, May 24 to Sunday, May 26 with the Friday and brings bikes from some of the world’s custom builders all together under one roof.

Manufacturers Yamaha, Indian, Triumph and Royal Enfield are all signed up to show bikes at the event and most will commission bikes built especially for the show.

The show is mainly concerned with showing off custom bikes of course but there are loads of stands selling drink, food, clothing and a myriad of other things to do with the custom bike world.

Bike Shed organisers are promising this year’s show will be bigger and better than ever before thanks to more space given over to the show for bikes with more food stalls, an increased number of bars, coffee stands, more music and there will be barbers and tattooists on site too.

This year for the first time there will also be a 250-seater cinema for a weekend of movie and show screenings to include the new bike film ‘Oil in the Blood’ and the classic ‘On Any Sunday’ among others.

The Friday night of the show is a VIP press and preview event but there are a limited number of public tickets available too.

The main show itself kicks off at 10am on Saturday morning and runs to 8pm that day. Sunday is a slightly earlier finish at 6pm after a 10am start.
