The first signs of summer arrive in London, and this can mean only one thing. It’s time for The Bike Shed’s annual bike show at London’s Tobacco Dock. Now a firm favourite on the calendar of any fans of bikes, barbers, beers and burgers, this eclectic collection of custom bikes is truly the best way to spend the last weekend of May.
This year’s event showcased The Bike Sheds largest collection of custom bikes and all things crotch rocket. Easily one of our favourites was Death Machines of London’s Airforce Moto Guzzi (plenty of pics below), which was easily up there with the kind of show stoppers for which DMOL are becoming so well known.
The great thing about The Bike Shed show is the wide range of stuff to see. If for some strange reason you get bike fatigue (yea right!) there are plenty of places to grab a bite to eat, have a beer or coffee and there’s even a dedicated tea stall. All this sitting alongside a wide range of bike-inspired art, photography and live music.
Once fed and watered a visit to Thy Barber to fix your helmet hair may be in order and those brave enough can get something a little more permanent from one of the tattoo artists showcasing their inky skills.
So roll on next year, but for now it’s time for us to stop waffling and show you some snaps!
