Brooklyn Invitational 2015

lowbrowlogo-Brooklyn Invitational

The 7th annual Brooklyn Invitational exceeded all expectations this year. Hands down one of the best shows to go to if you truly appreciate anything and everything with two wheels. The show is produced by Jessica Wertz, Jeffrey Schad, John Copeland, and Keino Sasaki. Each year they hand pick 30 incredible bikes, ranging from all styles and backgrounds. From race bikes to exotic collection pieces, choppers to even conceptual builds; this show never fails in the department of making your imagination run wild. Motorcycles in many ways, are moving pieces of art. The Brooklyn Invitational captures the essence of this by recognizing the soul, the history and the innovation behind each bike.

In case you couldn't attend or just want to relive it again, I put together a small 3 photo series for each builder/owner's bike, enjoy.

If for some reason you didn't get your fill of custom bikes inside, you could spend another few hours just walking around outside of the show and/or watching the main strip to get your fix in. The outside bike parking spanned nearly two city blocks this year, full of amazing motorcycles from all over the country. Show attendees rode back and forth on the main strip all day long and you could hear the echoes of pipes for miles.

If there were only a handful of shows you were able to go to in a year, make sure The Brooklyn Invitational is one of those on your list. Not only do you get to experience all "The Big Apple" has to offer for a weekend but you are completely surrounded by amazing motorcycle culture from all over the world. I think it's seriously the one time NYC feels small in my eyes. You can run into so many people you know on the streets and experience so much more on a bike then any other time of year. Just be careful and watch out for those yellow cabs. I cannot wait till next year!
