Bike Shed Event 2015

I went with Nick and Andy on my third visit to a BikeShed event held at the Tobacco Dock London,just a short distance east of Tower Bridge.Weather was dry this year,but London traffic seemed worse and the fact that we hadn't planned a route through the streets had us overheating and also Andy's Harley engined Cafe Racer.
  Got there in the end,just as they were letting the public in. We all thought it was a great show with more bikes on display than previous events and more importantly a lot of fresh new builds.
  A lot of the motorcycling fraternity don't have much good to say about this current trend,but we three think it totally positive when a totally uninspiring motorcycle can be turned into something worth looking at and at the same time introduce younger people into,what does at times look like is becoming a middle age/old man's/women's past time
  Due to the amount of photo's taken I will post them over the next couple of weeks

  1. Hi John, that bloke in the Barber's chair looks like a cadaver, is he ok or has he been overwhelmed by your coolness ?
