Kicking off the tour-wide Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Competition, motorcycles will be filling the San Mateo County Events Center this weekend for the International Motorcycle Show.
Additionally, there will be Supermoto Racing, licensed motorcyclists who have their own equipment can test-drive many different bikes and giveaways. Consisting of 500 custom-built bikes, this show goes cross-country with three cash prize winners admitted to the finale at the Daytona Progressive International Motorcycle Show. The custom bikes range from all walks of motorcycle hot rod ingenuity, from front-wheel drive bikes to sport bikes that transform into cruisers. Each competitor has logged over 1,000 hours in customizing their bikes.
