Anyone who has been to the Custombike Show in Bad Salzuflen knows that it has a lot to offer. A fat special exhibition is planned for this year to celebrate Harley-Davidson’s anniversary. Apart from tough competition, free entry, surprise packages and a sleek after-show party await all participants – as well as fat prizes for the winners. The stars of the fair, however, remain the countless converted motorbikes in the four exhibition halls. Since its inception, the Custombike Show has not only become the largest trade fair for motorbike customising worldwide, but also hosts the largest bike show on the continent. Last year alone, around 300 motorbikes from all over Europe faced the jury of experts and competed for trophies in 15 categories.
Since the show’s inception, there have been winners from Scandinavia to Slovenia and from Belarus to Portugal. As a logical consequence, the former “International Custombike Championship Germany” will now become the “European Custombike Championship”. And of course, customisers from the rest of the world are also welcome.
In addition to tough competition, all participants can look forward to free entry, surprise packages and a big after-show party – as well as big prizes for the winners. In addition to certificates and individually designed trophies, there will be 5,000 euros in prize money for the Best of Show bike and its owner.

We are looking forward to a great motorbike festival!
