The 2018 edition of “The One Moto Show” (9-11 February, Portland, Oregon) was a great success with the public (of all ages) who enjoyed the opportunity to admire the many customised bikes on display: super specials of various vintage and current brands. “Nine years ago we held the first One Motorcycle Show in an abandoned warehouse,” say the organisers. “The intention was to celebrate the strangest, rarest and most unconventional bikes, which we love, so that everyone could see them.
“We began without any idea of how things would go, not to mention what might happen subsequently, or expectations for the following 10 years. Today it’s hard to believe that we pulled it off: our motivation for carrying on is the feeling that we’re telling people about something we love; we want to give motorcycling fresh impetus, and we want to be inclusive and encourage people to take part.” An interesting message taken up in full by bikers in America and elsewhere, and in fact the show has grown from year to year (on Instagram 1Moto Show it has more than 51,000 followers); and things are already heating up for the next show, which will be the tenth.
