Remember the days when it seemed as if there was a motorcycle show or event to go to every weekend of the year? We’ve all missed that but, slowly, things are returning to normal and the first sign of that is a brand new event organised by Pat Draper (owner of V-Customs Pretoria).
The Custom Bike Appreciation Show is Pat’s way of kick-starting the custom bike scene after a difficult couple of years. Not only that, but the aim is to give something back to the community of supporters who have helped keep the custom industry afloat over a couple of very difficult years.
Scheduled for the weekend of Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd April, the event will take place at the Royal Elephant Hotel, on the corner of Willem Botha and Wierda Road in Eldoraigne, Centurion. Opening times are 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Sunday.
In the spirit of the event, admission is free but a donation to the SPCA will be appreciated, be it dog, cat food or even a cash donation. Visitors to the show will be able to drool over around 40 incredible custom motorcycles and visit a variety of motorcycle-related stalls.
South Africa’s top airbrush artist will be in action and pieces of her art will be raffled in aid of the local SPCA.
The Royal Elephant Hotel will be providing food and drinks for sale throughout the weekend, with a special outside gin and draught beer bar for when you don’t want to leave the sunshine.
The organisers are hoping that everyone will come along and support the brilliant South African custom bike scene and donate to a great cause in the SPCA at the same time. As for ZA Bikers, we’ll definitely be giving our support and showing our appreciation to all the guys and gals that keep the custom bike scene alive.
