CUSTOMBIKE-SHOW 2017 – The worlds largest exhibition for customized motorcycles stays Mekka of the custom scene

More than 31 800 People visited the CUSTOMBIKE-SHOW 2017 on the first december weekend. Thats almost 500 Visitors less than the previous year, but that was most likely due to the german wide scurry snowfall on the exhibition sunday. With four exhibition buildings, 28 000 square metres floor, 300 exhibitors and about 1000 radical customized motorcycles from all over the world, the event persistantly continues to be the worldwide largest traid show for motorcycle customizing.

As every year the Biker Build-Off was one of the main attractions. During the three exhibition days the teams from Harley-Davidson Würzburg and Wannabe Choppers from Gießen delivered a unusual duel. While the francionian Harley specialists married a Milwaukee-Eight-Engine from a touring model with a self designed Softail frame with a single swinging arm, the troops from Hesse built upon a spartanian charming Oldschool-Bike that to the surprise of all was powered by an electric engine. A coup that developed a strong topic of conversation. In the end the Dragster of Harley-Davidson Würzburg won with a razor-thin majority 21 votes over the futuristic concept of the youngsters. Congratulations to Würzburg!

For the competitors in the International Custombike Championship Germany (ICCG), it was a battle for honor, glory and trophys in 18 categories - wheras every victory equals as a knighting for the champions league of the international custom scene, whereas the winner of the Best-of-Show trophy also takes home 2.500,- Euros as prize money.

International Custombike Championship Germany

 

One of the highlights of the CUSTOMBIKE-SHOW is without a doubt the „International Custombike Championship Germany“ briefly called the ICCG. With over 250 participants registered to compete in 18 categroies against each other. The winner of all classes takes home the title „Best of Show“ plus an extensive bike portrait in on of our magazines

Amateurs and professionals alike can apply for the contest. An invitation to compete is comparable to a knighthood since the own bike can be presented to over 30,000 visitors during the three days so attention is guaranteed.

The rating in each category is determined by the editors of our magazines BIKERS NEWS, CUSTOMBIKE, DREAM-MACHINES and ROADSTER. For the grand finale, the winners meet on our main stage on Sunday to receive the trophies infront of the crowd. Honor to whom honor. Anyone participating in the bikeshow and walking on stage will forget all hardships whom he endured patiently during the construction of his project.

The rules are simple and minimalistic, since the fun should be in the foreground. Whether a lone wolf, a customizing team or a whole squad, everybody from Germany, Austria or Switzerland can join in as long as it remains in private hands.
