The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show, a three-day event for the entire family, will take place Friday April 8-10, 2022 in downtown Austin, Texas. The annual show, founded in 2014 by Revival Cycles, is gearing up to be the biggest one yet with over 200 confirmed custom motorcycle builds along with demo rides on new factory motorcycles and artistic showcases by designers from around the world. As is its tradition, The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show also coincides with the only U.S. stop in the worldwide top motorcycle series in the world, MotoGP 2022, making Austin the ultimate destination for moto excellence this spring.
“The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show was originally conceived as an excuse to get together with motorcycle builders from all over the world who inspired team Revival. What it has developed into over the years is an artistic display driven by a passion for motorcycles that far exceeds our wildest expectations,” Alan Stulburg, founder, Revival Cycles, The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show.
For the 2022 show, Revival Cycles will showcase The Fuse. The Ducati Fuse was crafted and built by Revival Cycles in collaboration with the build’s client Ed Boyd, the former global head of design for Dell computers. With more than 1,000 hours and almost seven years put into this custom bike, it is truly one-of-a-kind. The public debut will be featured inside the Design Lounge, sponsored by Dell Computers. Revival’s Alloy Guzzi will also debut at The Handbuilt Show. The Alloy Guzzi project was originally conceived as a vintage track bike and over time morphed into an elegant custom design and achieved a level of execution with a fit that is more fitting of a show bike. The bike’s frame is painted in an industrial green inspired by the original legendary Moto Guzzi V8 GP bike and has details throughout.
Red Bull, one of this year’s sponsors, will host an outdoor activation featuring Red Bull action sports athlete, Aaron Colton, who will be performing stunt demos on his gas and electric bikes. The stunts will include the Supermoto hybrid bike, which will also be showcased. With over a decade of riding experience, Aaron Colton is one of the most well-known street freestyle motorbike riders in the world.
“The Handbuilt Show represents the cutting edge of custom motorcycle building, where attendees get a peek at the next cool thing. It’s actually a challenge to pinpoint that new trend. There’s so much to be inspired by that it can be a bit overwhelming,” shared Roland Sands, American motorcycle racer and designer of custom high-performance motorcycles.
Other 2022 Handbuilt Show activations include artist Makoto Endo live-painting motorcycles with “chopsticks” and a kids obstacle course (kids under 12 get in free). Portland-based Rogue Ales will be activating a Beer Bar serving a variety of brews, including this year’s design Revival Cycles design collaboration in limited edition “Knuckle Buster IPA.” There’s a VIP Supporter Lounge for special ticket holders and a merchandise area that includes limited-edition luxury goods curated for the show. The weekend is just one big party in a giant cave filled with some of the most incredible works of art created by the most passionate builders/artists in the world.
