On the first weekend of December, the fifteenth anniversary of CUSTOMBIKE-SHOW will take place. Customizers and motorbike enthusiasts from all over the world will once again meet up from December 6 to 8 2019 in Bad Salzuflen.
Over 1000 refined bikes can be admired within the four exhibition halls and more than 300 companies will present everything related to individualizing motorcycles on the 28000 square meters of showroom.
The final of the international German custom bike building championship will be spectacular. Around 300 participants will compete with their unique bikes for titles and trophies in 18 categories.
The special exhibition called »Halbstark«, which roughly translates to adolescent and has a whole exhibition hall dedicated to it, will definitely attract attention. Kreidler, Hercules, Puch and Zündapp were the letterings that once adorned countless children’s rooms. Even today, hearing a rattling reng-deng-deng or smelling a dash of two-stroke oil in the air is enough to send one to a phantastic world of nostalgia.
Bizarre, desirable, dreamlike as well as rare, individual and unreachable exhibits will be on display there. Exhibits that are always on two wheels, always possess 50 cc and always come with a small side of wistfulness.
The supporting program will guarantee great entertainment: color will be worked into skin within the tattoo area, the Tattoo-Starlet election will take place, musical entertainment will be provided by Rocco Recycle and risky maneuvers will be showcased in the steep face. Further attractions, such as body painting demonstrations, the election of Miss CUSTOMBIKE, motorbike premiers, several custom bike presentations and many more will complement the diverse program.
One of the CUSTOMBIKE-SHOW highlights is the European Biker Build-Off. Since 2007, two teams compete each year with one show bike respectively. The framework of the Biker Build-Off is as follows: both teams have three days to complete one custom bike each in front of the fair visitors. The winners will be awarded their prize on Sunday afternoon. At this year’s CUSTOMBIKE-SHOW, the Swiss Sandra and Markus Fröhlich (MCSands Motor Shop) will compete against their German opponents Stephan and Max A. Schneiderbanger (SS Cycle/ Fred Flitzefuß Karosseriebau) for the victory of the European Biker Build-Off 2019.
Both teams are well rehearsed and have already won different awards with their modifications at renowned motorbike and custom bike fairs. Technically, they both classify as »old school« and they share a passion for old Harleys. Husband and wife versus father and son - who will build the better custom bike?
It will not only be exciting for motorcycle builders but also for the visitors. Exclusive prizes with an overall value of more than 35.000 Euros will be raffled over three fair days. A Honda monkey, a Triumph Speed and a Harley-Davidson Sportster Iron will be among the prizes.
We at Kawasaki are once again very satisfied with our appearance for the custombike and the exhibition itself. Our products and their customizations were well received by the audience. And also the German premiere of the W800 was welcomed by the customers. In addition, we noticed a positive increasment of the interest from the younger generation (15-17 year olds) at this exhibition.
The Custombike is a great show, cause of it's very relaxed atmosphere, at the same time enthusiastic motorcyclists from the Harley rider through the (sport) touring rider, straight to the adventurous off-road rider can be found. This diversity, that you wouldnt expect at the Custombike plus the great support and organisation from the Custombike-Team inspire us every year.
The custombike is still one of the most important trade exhibitions in the year for us. I see a positive development from both the exhibitors and the visitors. The fair was very "Harley heavy" a few years ago, but now it's a very balanced ratio of almost all brands recognizable which not only makes the exhibition very good, but also the whole scene!
Arriving at the Custombike Show is like docking at the home port after a tiring and exciting 12 months at sea. The relaxed and very informal atmosphere is the most emotional moment every year, I am already looking foward to the CBS 2019Foto: Ulli Biggemann
The Custombike Show 2018 was wonderful again this year. We had many interested expert visitors and customizers visiting our booth. The Custombike Show is the trade fair for motorcycle conversions par excellence. It offers us the opportunity to increase our visibility, attract new customers and deepen existing contacts. Particulary gratifying where the positive respones of our regular customers at our booth regarding our own products. Thank you all!
Once again, the custombike has been successful for us. Visitors from young to old and everyone was interested, what more could you want. Thanks to all the visitors and especially to Huber Verlag for such a super organized trade fair.
For Triumph, the Custombike 2018 was once again a very good gauge for the upcoming spring business. For example, the visitor feedback on our new Scrambler 1200 series was extremely positive and lets us look confidently towards the coming year. In 2019 we will definetly be back at the show.
For us, or better said, for our product, the CUSTOMBIKE SHOW 2018 was awesome. Eventhough we only offered a product that has only indirectly to do with motorcycle riding, we have recieved more orders than at any other show before. We will definetly be back in 2019!
The CUSTOMBIKE 2018 was once again a great experience for us. Great audience, good talks and contacts, as it should be. Smooth flow from the organizer. The event is one of the most important events in the year.
The Custombike Show was once again a great success for us this year. Great bikes, a good selection of exhibitors and a very interested audience makes this fair always special. Our new product CRUISETEC was well received by the professional audience, and we were happy about many interesting conversations in a relaxed custombike atmosphere. We are looking forward to next year!
Just like our heritage product portfolio, the presence of BMW Motorrad on the custombike has grown. Overall, the fair is becoming more diverse. We were pleased that the official Announcement of the BMW Motorrad Boxer Cup 2019 with which R nineT Racer was very well received by the visitors.

Live at the CUSTOMBIKE-SHOW 6th. – 8th december 2019
The Biker Build-Off was introduced in 2007. Since then, two teams competed for the title every year. The concept is clear: The two teams need to build a custom bike live in front of the audience.
At this year’s CUSTOMBIKE-SHOW, the Swiss Sandra and Markus Fröhlich (MCSands Motor Shop) will compete against their German opponents Stephan and Max A. Schneiderbanger (SS Cycle/ Fred Flitzefuß Karosseriebau) for the victory of the European Biker Build-Off 2019.
One of the highlights of the CUSTOMBIKE-SHOW is without a doubt the „International Custombike Championship Germany“ briefly called the ICCG. With over 250 participants registered to compete in 18 categroies against each other. The winner of all classes takes home the title „Best of Show“ plus an extensive bike portrait in on of our magazines
Amateurs and professionals alike can apply for the contest. An invitation to compete is comparable to a knighthood since the own bike can be presented to over 30,000 visitors during the three days so attention is guaranteed.
The rating in each category is determined by the editors of our magazines BIKERS NEWS, CUSTOMBIKE, DREAM-MACHINES and ROADSTER. For the grand finale, the winners meet on our main stage on Sunday to receive the trophies infront of the crowd. Honor to whom honor. Anyone participating in the bikeshow and walking on stage will forget all hardships whom he endured patiently during the construction of his project.
