Taking place in the historic Tobacco Docks, London, from 25th to 27th May, is one of the biggest motorcycle shows to occur in Europe. Bike Shed London is back one more time, taking creativity and the culture of custom motorcycles to a whole new level.

Tobacco Docks is an exhibition located near Tower Bridge. One of the reasons why Bike Shed London has been popular among motorcycle enthusiasts is that the organisers make the event as unique as possible. They go out of their way to hand-pick every single activity so that the attendees have the best time of their lives during the weekend.

To show you why this is such a huge show, here is a list of events taking place:
    Barbershop and Tattoos

      If you want to get wonderful haircuts and shaves that make you look fly, then you have to visit the barbershop at the event. The crew of Thy Barber and Frank Rimer will be present, showcasing their exceptional skills with your hair. If you want to book them, you will have to visit the barbershop on the day of the event. It follows a first-come-first-serve policy so that it is fair for everyone attending the event.

      Ushuaia Tattoo and Damian Gorsky will also be there during the show, bringing their stunning illustrative and colourful artwork to life on your body.

      Custom Motorcycles
