Motorbike website thebikeshed.cc, recently put on the third annual Bike Shed Motorcycle Club event, BSMC III in London. This two-day alternative-custom motorcycle exhibition was designed a few years ago to highlight some of the better and more unusual motorcycles being built within the burgeoning underground custom and café racer scenes and is a celebration of all things related to the retro-classical motorcycle scene. It was held at the Tobacco Dock, a 200-year-old building just south of Shoreditch, a space carefully decided upon so that there would be an easygoing, non-trade-show vibe where people would want to hang out all day. There were tons of bikes as well as art, photography, film, gear, beer, coffee, a barbershop station, and a tattoo area.

The exhibition showcased café racers, brat-style scramblers, and other custom motorcycles as well as an abundance of art, photography, design, and culture, all of which celebrate the underground custom scene.
