Fancy a free motorcycle show? If you’re in Austin, Texas, on the weekend of April 11th and 12th for the 2014 MotoGP Red Bull Grand Prix of Americas there’s an opportunity to see the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show for free.

The event, which will be staged at Austin’s 1100 E. 5th St has been arranged so that bike builders and fabricators can showcase the diversity of their work. The 2014 Handbuilt Motorcycle Show, supported by Moto Guzzi and the circuit of Americas, will feature more than 100 custom and hand built motorcycles of all types. Alongside these exhibits will be motorcycle-related artwork, music, food, beer, cocktails and a vintage motorcycle stunt show featuring the wall of death.

There will also be an opportunity to see the Second Skin Jacket Show which has been specially organized to present vintage and modern customized motorcycle -apparel, specifically jackets and vests, from old MC-Club pieces to contemporary one-offs, including a set of four jackets commissioned by show sponsor, RevIT!, that will be customized by local Austin artists.

      Ewwww. Hipster central. It’s even more egregious for being in the most conservative state and not way up on the left coast.

        Would that make Austin an island of sanity or an island of insanity? or both?

  • Scott Vogt

  • Alex

      well, ya know… this is supposed to fill the void. The One Show was sooo much fun last year!

      • Ryland Brown

        The One happened again this year in PDX.

      Actually Matt, you’re right. Those ARE photos of that show. That show was actually officially hosted by Revival Cycles, that same weekend last year, same space, and they are the same exact dudes that not only put most of that show together, but took the photos you see there. You can find it all on their website. Pretty sure it’s not a secret.

      better still, I looked again and it looks like most of the bikes in those photos are actually REVIVAL’S bikes!
