Cape Town – The Killarney Motor Show on Sunday 6 November will have plenty for fans of two-wheeled motoring as well, with displays of new motorcycle and scooter models, classic machinery to show you just how far we’re come and, and a very special display of custom bikes to show you just how far you can go.

The display will be headlined by Cave Customs, which will be hosting a ‘village’ display on part of the karting circuit featuring both custom bikes and cars; Cave has a reputation for thinking way, way outside the box while still building eminently rideable machines, and all the vehicles on its Killarney display will be new, so you really don’t know what to expect until you get there.

There will also be displays of one or more machines by at least eight custom builders specialising in motorcycles, and show visitors will be invited to help decide the winner of the Best in Show award by voting for their favourites. All the voting slips will also go into a lucky draw for a number of motoring-related prizes.

Confirmed entries for the custom bike competition include automotive artworks by:

ANVL Kraft

Los Muertos

Wrench Monkey

FD Worx

Neville Murray

Stoos Customs


Jonathan Tee

Once again, most of the entries will be not have been previously shown in public and the “wow” factor is likely to be extremely high. The fashion saying that “The devil is in the details” is nowhere more true than in world of custom motorcycles, because a motorcycle wears all its engineering on the outside.

Take a walk through the custom motorcycle displays at the Killarney Motor Show to see what real attention to detail is all about.
