Too cold outside for a custom motorcycle show? Well then take it inside a brewery! Saturday night here in Cincinnati was the Garage Brewed bike show. It’s held inside the Rhinegheist brewery and the combo of cafe racers and hoppy local brews made it a fantastic hipster fest!
The place was absolutely packed so it was tough to get good pictures especially with a beer perpetually occupying one hand. All the bikes on display were custom builds from all over the midwest.
Cafe racers, bobbers, and scrambler style builds were the most common, but there were all kinds of vintage motorcycles.
This old water cooled Honda has a Buell XB front fork, wheel, & perimeter brake.
The thought of riding a hardtail hurts my tailbone, but this one was pretty slick. The metal work was fantastic and it had some neat touches like the Buell style perimeter brake on the rear.
The surfaces of all the controls were covered in weld beads to provide the texture.
I really have a thing for vintage bikes & cafe racers with a modern upside down fork and meaty tires.
Pretty sweet BMW build that looks ready to take on the zombie apocalypse
A really simple and clean GS!
I can’t tell if this guy is a single or a twin. It has a single carb and inlet, but two exhaust ports. The bronze engine coating was a pretty cool touch.
That’s all the good pictures I managed to get as my focus drifted from bikes to beers. Overall it was a fantastic show and was a great way to help with the non-riding season blues.
