The 29th Biker Fest, 14-17 May at Lignano Sabbiadoro (Udine, Italy) this year celebrates the 25th anniversary of promoter Biker’s Life magazine, one of the oldest custom print titles in Europe.
The event will also host the final stage of the 4th annual Italian Motorcycle Championship, which is the culmination of 14 custom events held around the country since May 2014. Classes include Freestyle, Modified Harley-Davidson, Old Style, Café Racer, Bagger, Metric, Streetfighter/Sports Bike and Scrambler. The top three winning bikes will receive 1000 euros towards the expense of competing at the next World Championship of Custom Bike Building to be held at INTERMOT in Cologne, Germany, in October 2016.
Last year’s event, won by Inglourious Basterds Cycles, saw 55 bikes compete from across Italy plus visitors from the Czech Republic, Romania and Ukraine.
Among the attractions over the weekend will be an off-road scrambler challenge, trade stands and test rides at the Luna Park, a parade through the streets of Lignano, stunt shows, custom painting show, monobike exhibition and live music.
