With a great atmosphere and a stunning display, it's no wonder so bike custom bike enthusiasts flocked to Shoreditch Studios in East London last weekend (18-19 May).

Motorcycles like cafe racers, scramblers and custom builds are becoming ever more popular, and more custom rides are popping up as bike enthusiasts make moves to own a bike which is perfectly unique.

The Bike Shed held an event in Shoreditch studios which was a collaboration of a custom motorcycle displays, art and design, photography, gear, and even haircut and tattoo sections.

The culture which brings together custom lovers has become more apparent as many events held nationwide concentrate on custom and class builds.

At The Event, display bikes included a Lucky Thirteen Triumph Bonneville from the East London Chop Shop, a Hot Wheels Yamaha XJR from Motopunks and a Paul Smart Ducati, boasting the famous green frame, to name but a few.

Custom motorcycle companies like Spirit of the Seventies and Camden-based Untitled Motorcycles were present alongside many others.

Bikes in all different shapes, sizes and styles were not the only thing on offer as custom gear was also a big feature of the day.

From jelmets, to jackets and even jeans, companies like Maple Motorcycle jeans were introducing those in attendance to products which take the love for customisation to the next level.

With food and drink being served from a retro Airstream caravan, there was no excuse but to stick around for most of the day and take in the surroundings and mingle with the custom crowd.

The shared passion of bikes was obvious as the hustle and bustle of the crowd milling around included young children who had been brought along to enjoy the day.

The turnout was a good indication of the amount of people who are interested in custom builds and who are embracing the culture surrounding it.
