Custom Bike Show no. 43! 5000 motorcycles in Norrtälje !

On June 3, 2017, the first Saturday in June, and for the 43rd time since the start in 1971, it was the time for Custom Bike Show ™. The exhibition, which has become one of the world's most prestigious motorcycle exhibitions for customized motorcycles and this year attracted about 230 exhibitors in 8 different classes. Top weather and 9000 spectators made it a big festival in Norrtälje.

Someone has said that "it's only old guys who ride chopper", and maybe there's a little bit of truth in that expression because there were a lot of well-known bike builders who exhibited this year's exhibition and some had probably passed the 50's. Nevertheless, the HD chopper class was the class that attracted the most participants with 60 competitors. But the age was spread and participants were not only from Sweden but also from Norway, Finland, Denmark, the Baltic States and Germany. The winner was Sami Järvelä from Scrap Mc, Rauma in Finland.

One of the young enthusiasts was Björn Henning Larsson is from Oslo. On Friday afternoon at 13 o'clock he put the last screw on his newly built HD chopper. Shortly thereafter he started the journey towards Norrtälje and arrived late at night until Saturday. On Saturday morning with some small adjustments he could enter the exhibition. There was no price this year - we hope he will try again next year.

Café racer is a trend among many builders today and if you like to be really hip you should ride BMW. And, of course, there were many BMW buildings among the about 30's exhibitors in the class. But, in fact, none of them ended up at the podium, won did instead Jakko Mäkelä from Nousiainen, Finland with an NSU, an odd engine today but common about 50 years ago. (NSU ended as a motorcycle brand in 1964) Second and third place went to Sweden through Dan Andersson from Borlänge with a Triton (a cross between Triump and Norton) and Johan Syrén from Sundbyberg with a Triumph Truxton.

One can invent a completely own motorcycle brand and return 100 years back in time, build a motorcycle and win on the Custom Bike Show. That was exactly what Petri Ruusunen from Turku in Finland did, he came on his Velacimoteur (possibly translated as "this is a motorcycle"). What kind of brand the engine really was unknown, but the 1910s antique look was unmistakably stylish. May be, one of the other old school builders thought that it was unfair that a motorcycle that never existed could win, but at the same time it proves that creativity is high!

David Burman from Arjeplog was the one who had most watchers when driving his snowmobiles on the canal that ends in the Norrtälje harbor. Snowmobiles usually run mostly on snow, a more solid form of water, but at this year's Custom Bike Show made David two attempts to repeat his unique world record snowmobile trick. It is up to running at full speed on water, up on a ramp and making a jump with a perfect backflip and then driving on to land. He did not succeed at any of his two attempts which ended under the water surface. The audience liked his daredevil attempt and he received a big audience and a lot of applause.

It went better for the other daredevils who performed. Jimmy Olsson with his trialtrick who ended with a stage show where he jumped with a motorcycle over the band's drummer to the audience's great delight. Johan and Camilla Tildemyr performed an almost 100-year variety trick by driving a 60 year old motorcycle cross and across inside a steel cage from the early 1920s

Pressrelease from Twin Club and Custom Bike Show, Norrtälje, Sweden 2013-06-01.

That the motorcycle-building is an art became evident during the Custom Bike Show. This year's winner Carlos Stenson from Västerlanda came to this year's show with a bike that was art! An amazing creation that would have been able to taken from 1920. It was enough for second place in the Custom class and one of the jury's tickets to the World Championship in Essen next spring. Carlos was also awarded the People’s choice.

Arts and happenings were a recurring theme in this year's show where cultural and creative motorcycle building went hand in hand. In the park was painted the largest painting ever made in Norrtälje - at 53 square canvas painted by graffiti artists Jags, Shake and Slewe with designs from the show.
In the harbor was art glass created and in the park was Jussi Säterli airbrusching. Sören Johansson from Uppsala was shaping metal sheets plates and at the stunt arena did Norrtälje Stunters breathtaking tricks on the motorcycle.
In the Sala Motordromen they drove on the walls, and Lazy Joe & Co showed that one can use an old motorcycle together with the balance of art at full speed.

Close to 8000 visitors had a nice day in Norrtälje together with 220 competitor bikes in 7 different classes, an outdoor event with 40 companies and motorcycle enthusiasts from all over Europe. Custom Bike Show is an event that attracts motorcycle builder and motorcycle enthusiasts, and for many is the premiere of the season. Many also come to see the trends and tendencies in motorcycle construction and take advantage of new products which will be shown. As in previous years were also Custom Bike Show selection race for the World Championship of Custom Bike Building.

Today's big winner was Alpo Varis from Aliens Mc, Finland who won the class with the toughest competition, HD Chopper. Alpo also won best paintjob and appointed by the judges as the best motorcycle with a ticket to the World Championship as a prize.

Surprise of the day and most smiles created Jupo Tannins building that at first glance looked like a regular motorcycle with sidecar - but without engine! Nevertheless, he came running into the show with a wide smile. During an amazing design he had hidden the engine and gearbox in the sidecar that had lines suspiciously look like an old WV bubble. This innovation gave Jupo the first prize in the Custom class.

-Most odd was perhaps a building from St. Petersburg, a Honda built together using everything and anything possible, including an untold number of registration plates. Art?, Maybe not, but it stuck out enough to get a second prize in the chopper class and Russia got its first winner at Custom Bike Show.

Press release from Custom Bike Show 2012, june 2

High class at the show but few visitors was the fact at Custom Bike Show in Norrtälje this year. Rain, rain and rain, is perhaps how many will remember the day. The comment of the day among the visitors still were:

-We will be back next year!

Tickets for the European Championship finals took Samuli Kaiuola, Finland and Peo Josefsson from Motala.
The class Modified Harley and Best Paintjob was won by Mike Wiråker from Kalmar with his bagger bike - Lord of the Rings.

The great festival atmosphere never really arrived, persistent rain and 8 degrees meant that visitors were reduced to a fraction of what is tradition. But those who defied the weather got a show with high quality and a great stage entertainment, or as one of the visitors put it:

-A fucking weather but great entertainment.

The event with a mix of exhibition, fair and festival is normally one of the largest of its kind in Europe, and is organized by Twin Club Mc in Norrtälje. This year was Custom Bike Show arranged for the 38th time, which is now and an established arena for motorcycle building in Scandinavia and Europe and which also has a good reputation in the United States, homeland of motorcycle buildings.
Motorcycle Building has a nearly 50 year tradition in Sweden, and is therefore a pioneer, closely behind the U.S. where the culture really took off in the 50s. To rebuild or build your very own motorcycle has not been entirely clear, but interest has been around. Sweden has been a trend-setter in the culture and there is a "Swedish style" in the world. Custom Bike Show is one of the events in a good way of handling the culture and contribute to their survival and makes an impression on the rest of the motorcycle world in the world!

This year's finalists were Lasse Sundberg and Stellan Egeland. Lasse's Bike is a graceful chopper with a distinct retro-style built with an "ancient" Husqvarna engine and a long front fork. Stellan Egeland's building is a unique self-construction with hub steering.
