It’s nearly December, and that means one thing – no, not Christmas, the BSH Custom Heroes stand at Motorcycle Live! at the NEC (4-12th Dec)!
After a gap in 2020 caused by the dreaded Covid-19, we return to Brum with, once again, one of the, if not the, best stands at Britain’s biggest (by far!) indoor motorcycle show. We have the cream of the best custom bikes in the land, including the six winners of the 2021 BSH Custom Bike Champs (whittled down from over 1,300 entries!), as well as not one, but two, incredible bikes from south coast chopper specialists Attitude Cycles (both of them cover bikes in the mag), a gloriously sparkly fat-wheeled Victory, and a so-Seventies-it-hurts C-cab trike the likes of which haven’t been seen in the UK for decades! And, on the morning of Sat 4th, at 11am, give or take a bit depending on hangovers, there’ll be the presentation of the awards for the Custom Champs.
As well as that we’ll be having demonstrations of the exquisite brass work of Chopper Ste’s Shine Shack, the amazing sculptures of Creative Metal by Tim, and the unbelievable paintwork of Gus Spence of Muddy Beach Customs – not to be missed!
You’ll also be able to get the latest mag, the best subscription deals, and the coolest BSH merch’ and, if you’re really unlucky… sorry, sorry, lucky, of course, you might meet a staffer or two an’ all… actually that’s not much of an attraction really, is it?
Anyway, the BSH Custom Heroes stand is in Hall 4, and you can get tickets and info’ on the show on the Motorcycle Live website at www.motorcyclelive.co.uk
Read all about the Heroes below…enjoy!
Chopper Ste’s Shine Shack: 4 – 6 December
Stephen Smith is the man behind Chopper Ste’s Shine Shack and he joins us on the Custom Heroes stand on the opening weekend of the show!
Ex- infantry soldier Steve from Richmond considers himself a parts guy and is now getting into building bikes too. He is totally self-taught and has been at this for around 3 years. Starting out with a polishing machine and a very small lathe, Steve started making small parts for his own bike and doing a bit of polishing for other people. It’s has taken off quite well and he’s clearly found his own style and way of doing things!
Steve is also an engraver and is developing this skill along with acid etching – both of which you’ll be able to see live at the show!
