The 2016 MCN show has come and gone and what a great event it was. The excel arena makes for a fantastic undercover venue so that you can take your time ogling at all the superb motorcycles that are on display without the February temperatures getting at you. The event was set in to sections and while the custom section was the smallest there was still a huge amount packed in to it! The major players were all there from Custom Chrome to Shaw Speed Harley Davidson. However there was a superb display of custom bikes of all variety’s from some extremely talented builders.
It was also great to see some of the younger generation at the event who will hopefully continue to further the recreation!
This chopped shovelhead was one of our favourites at the event, built by Sickboyz Customs in Surrey it was a real stand out in the crowd and a real eye catcher. It was so neat and refined, nothing too over the top, just right and just the way we like it!
Rob Wood of Twisted Spine Motorcycles in Derby Designed these two motorbikes that were designed to reflect the age of motorcycles. Fantastic clean lines and great attention to detail. The engine on this one was a 150cc Villiers.
The second bike by Rob Wood was a BSA Navigator with a 175 engine.
Mac Motorcycles were doing live work on their Spud bike, they bought a great atmosphere to the event and it was great talking to them. We hope to bring you more news about them soon!
On display and also being started at regular intervals and deafening the crowd was Millyards 8L V10 Dodge Viper Motorcycle, an incredible piece of engineering and a ideal bike to get on if you have just passed your test!

Larry Houghton from Lamb Engineering has his bike on display. This bike was originally a 2009 Triumph Bonneville which was an insurance write-off! As the name suggests it pays tribute to the early pionerrs of speed including most notably the Wolds Fastest Indian Burt Monroe.
Krazy Horse bought several of their Zero Engineering bikes to the show, always a pleasure to look at these superb machines! The beautiful art on the Zero bike below was done by Pageant Paintwork.
Obviously this was a mere glimpse of all the amazing motorbikes that were on show. It was great to see the custom scene holding its own in the MCN arena. Hopefully the 2017 show will showcase more of the fantastic talent that is currently taking place!
