CUSTOMBIKE 2015 - First Day in Bad Salzuflen, Germany

First Day at the CUSTOMBIKE 2015

11th Edition CUSTOMBIKE, December 4th-6th, Custom-mania at Bad Salzuflen/Germany

What is the state of the scene in Europe's biggest market? Buzzing! This year running in its 11th year, the Custombike at Bad Salzuflen has certainly changed over the last decade, but the number of visitors has remained high as ever – and even thought some of the big names in german customizing are taking breaks or concentrate on their own events.

And the list of exhibitors was as diversified as never before, since the Café Racer / Roadster / Tracker "wave" is hitting the German roads big time too: Exhibitors now include previously unseen top brands as BMW, Ducati, Yamaha, MV-Agusta and...Horex! Is CUSTOMBIKE into an x-mas Intermot? Certainly not! 250 custombikes of all styles on display grant that the event is still close to its roots: The private builders that create stunning garage-built motorcycles at
