You know what they say, everything is bigger in Texas. The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show, now in its 5th year, has outgrown its previous location and is moving to a bigger one with more attractions. Check it out!
AUSTIN, TX – March 26, 2018 – Revival Cycles has been preparing for its 5th year of the The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show and it just got bigger for 2018! After 4 years at Fair Market, The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show is MOVING! The show will now take place at 305 S Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78704 (Austin American Statesman building). This not only means a better view of downtown Austin from a riverside venue, it means more bikes, shorter lines, better bars, more parking, and easier access to the show for attendees! As an added bonus, this year’s show will have the best spectator spot to view the famous bat exodus from under the Congress Bridge each sunset. Each night, 1.5 million bats take flight 20 minutes before sundown in front of 100s of spectators. Handbuilt Show attendees will be able to witness this Austin spectacle while at the show from an exclusive view.
Last year the event brought an estimated 42,000 motorcycle enthusiasts and onlookers that circled among some 110 custom handbuilt motorcycles, this year those numbers will greatly increase with the change of venue. The custom motorcycle shop, Revival Cycles, are the inventors and curators of the annual event that is remarked as the best custom motorcycle show in the country, and they cannot wait for the 5th and biggest Handbuilt Show yet!
As always, the Wall of Death will return. The 40 foot high vertical wooden barrel where riders speed around the inside surfaces traveling vertical to the ground. This death-defying act has been pleasing crowds for over 100 years and The Handbuilt Show brings this spectacle to show attendees included in their ticket price. Nobody leaves this show unaffected…no matter how many times you see it.
Also, included in the ticket purchase is a pre-party Thursday night, April 19th at the South Congress Hotel as well as a closing party April 22nd at Revival Cycles’ workshop located at 5305 Bolm Rd Austin, TX 78721.
