Revival Cycles, the Austin-based design house and leader in the custom motorcycle design-build community, announced the return of the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show. The annual event will take place April 8-10, 2022, coinciding with MotoGP and making Austin the ultimate destination for moto excellence this spring.
Launched in 2014 by Revival Cycles to showcase the best in custom builds, design, and culture, The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show is one of the world’s most elite motorcycle gatherings. The three-day event in Austin, Texas, will see attendees experience over 100,000 square feet of curated show space, including more than 150 hand built motorcycles and an interactive art gallery. The one-of-a-kind show attracts over 25,000 attendees of all ages throughout the event. It presents an exciting and rare opportunity to see custom builds, meet designers, and experience art created by some of the most knowledgeable and skilled builders worldwide, creating one-of-a-kind, truly hand-built machines. The expo displays the beauty of what can be created by hand, from welders to leather makers, engine gurus, and metal tinkerers.
“The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show was originally conceived as an excuse to get together with motorcycle builders from all over the world who inspired team Revival. What it has developed into over the years is an artistic display driven by a passion for motorcycles that far exceeds our wildest expectations,” Alan Stulburg, founder, Revival Cycles, The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show.
This year Revival Cycles will showcase The Fuse. The long-awaited public debut of this gorgeous bike, built by Team Revival, will happen in the Design Lounge, sponsored by Dell Computers. Revival’s Alloy Guzzi will also debut at The Handbuilt Show.
“The Handbuilt Show represents the cutting edge of custom motorcycle building, where attendees get a peek at the next cool thing. It’s actually a challenge to pinpoint that new trend. There’s so much to be inspired by that it can be a bit overwhelming,” shares Roland Sands, American motorcycle racer and designer of custom high-performance motorcycles.
Handbuilt Show planned activations include artist Makoto Endo live-painting motorcycles with ‘chopsticks’ and a kids obstacle course (kids under 12 get in free). Portland-based Rogue Ales will be activating a Beer Bar serving a variety of brews, including this year’s limited edition “Knuckle Buster IPA” collaboration with Revival Cycles. There’s a VIP Supporter Lounge for special ticket holders and a merch area that includes limited-edition luxury goods curated for the show. It’s a big party in a giant cave filled with some of the most incredible works of art created by the most passionate builders/artists in the world.
Revival Cycles is currently accepting exhibitor entries for those interested in submitting custom hand-built motorcycles.
