The Brackley Festival of Motorcycling 2017 is going to be bigger and better than it has ever been.
There’s a new addition this year and it’s the custom village.
What’s a custom Village? Well, there will be trade stalls specific to the custom scene, the coffee & cake man in his Airstream trailer, the Gentlemen's lounge - chill out zone with sofas for your comfort, some top-class bike builders for you to talk to, and of course a custom motorcycle show featuring some unique and stunning pre-invited custom motorcycles. Alongside the pre-invited entries, the judges will be selecting 10 custom bikes which have been ridden-in on the day.
To make this happen we’ve joined forces with two big names in the UK custom bike scene, Twisted Iron who will be working is association with Sickboyz Customs.
Who are they?
Are you spending every spare minute in your shed or garage building your dream motorcycle? Twisted Iron is for those of us who have a vision of what they want to ride and then go and build it. It’s a community for like-minded shed dwellers!!
It’s run by Russell and Beverly Cort. Dyed in the wool bikers with a background in engineering and design. These two have been organising motorcycle events for the last 10 years, and have organised and run the ‘Oxford Distinguished Gentlemans Ride’ in September for the last 3 years.
Twisted Iron started 4 years ago with a Facebook page then a Custom Bike Event called ‘The Happening’. Their following quickly grew and the demand for regular meets increased. Twisted Iron responded by hosting a monthly bike meet at a place called ‘This Is Your Garage’ near Oxford, a very cool venue.
‘This Is Your Garage’ (TIYG), is a great place. It’s somewhere to meet like-minded car and bike enthusiasts and work on your own vehicle in fully kitted out work bays; there’s even a place to store your pride and joy.
If you’re looking for a community for bikers who share the same passion, no airs or graces, just decent guys and girls enjoying their bikes, give Twisted Iron a look. You won’t regret it.
‘The Happening’ 2017 is on 15th-16th September 2017, in a field at Mill Lane, Chalgrove. Oxon. OX44 7SL
