KICKBACK London attracted more than 2500 enthusiasts, 140 unique motorcycles and more than 40 traders, according to its organisers

The show - which featured customisers, engineers, fabricators and designers from all over UK plus builders and dealers from Costa Rica, Italy, Poland, Isle of Man and France - took place on 29-30 October at Olympia.

Although the event was an “invitational” rather than a competition, three awards were given to young builders - Loris from Stile Italiano, Rahul from Sinroja Motorcycles (BMW above) and “shed” builder Richard Eastop (his Martek pictured above) - in honour of their engineering excellence.

A special award was also given to Chris Wedgwood for his steam powered drag bike.

Inside the main hall visitors could mooch around all the exhibitor stalls such as Dickies Motorcycle Outfitters, And Sons, Oily Rag Clothing, Seven Vision, Monkey Outlet, Cabaret Club Clothing, Rag & Bone Customs, Krazy Horse, Café Racer Kits, Jack Lilley Triumph, Royal Enfield, TTT Motorcycles, Forsa Italiana, Infinity Motorcycles, The Bike Bus, Shippio, Losers Tea Stall, Takakuda, Luk3 Clothing, Helite, Allstyles Insurance, Sinnis Motorcycles, Gold Top, Righteous Motorcycles, Mobile Centre, BMG Scooters, Harley Davidson Exhausts, Pacto Helmets, Caledonian Customs, Lion’s Den plus many more.

There were also some really neat features within the show, including a display of rare classics from Brooklands, the Art Space gallery in association with UAL, Rocket Bobs showing off the award-winning Speed Weevil, monkey bikes and motorised bicycles, the Valespeed Workshop and of course the showcase itself with a fine collection of rare classics and customised gems.

The next KICKBACK Motorcycle Show is at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire from 1-2 April, 2017.
