The location is Olympia, London. The date is 29th - 30th October 2016. The subject is custom motorcycles. And the event is, of course, the Kickback Show, home of everything on two wheels that's weird, wired, wonderful, wonky, wowsome and wacky. The show started small and modest, and it gets bigger and bigger as the word gets round. If you're a custom bike builder, or a custom bike fan, you've got to see this extravaganza at least once in your life, and ideally at least once every year.


Kickback reckon there will be "100 masterpieces" on display, which is probably laying in on a bit thick. But we'll settle for "100 interpretations".


But aside from viewing dozens of the most thought-provoking and unlikely cafe racers, chops, bobbers, and bratsters in this corner of the planet, you can expect live music (Ronnie and the Ripchords), a pop-up shop (courtesy of the Art Space), trade stands (courtesy of firms such as Krazy Horse, Davida, Oil Rag Clothing and Stile Italiano), food, coffee and vintage bike movies showing all day. In fact, there's something oddball or inspiring at every turn of your head.



We visited Kickback a couple of times, and it's a hoot. And whatever else you come away with, it won't be a shortage of ideas for your next, or ongoing project.


Among the sponsors are: Michelin, 100% Biker, Dickies Motorcycle Outfitters, Sinroja Motorcycles and Covec-Bull-It Jeans.


Tickets are 8.95 advance, or ten quid on the door. There is on-site parking for cars, vans and bikes. But check details (and costs) in advance. Generally speaking, Olympia is easily accessible by public transport.
