THE 41st annual Custom Bike Show, held by Twin Club MC at Norrtelje on the Swedish coast, will be staged on Saturday June 6th this year (always the first Saturday of June, coinciding with Sweden's National Holiday weekend). The one-day/seven-hour show has seven classes and is a genuine 'ride-in'. It has a big reputation for some of the best
"authentic" real-world, well-ridden custom bikes and best examples of 'Swedish Style' choppers ever seen at any show, with visitors from all over Scandinavia and beyond – hence its status as the Scandinavian Championship of Custom Bike Building.

The show is now in its 11th year as an affiliate to the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building. The three winning bikes chosen by a jury of industry professionals gain automatic entry into the World Championship at INTERMOT, Cologne, Germany, (October 2016) and a 2,000 Euro prize to be used against the expense of competing.
Last year’s event featured 240 bikes from across Scandinavia and Europe, and even featured an entry from Japan and two from Australia. The winning bike, “WSA” by Veikko Sikiö, went on to claim second place at the 2014 World Championship in Cologne, Germany.
