CLASSIC SHOWS FLOURISH

As the 2015 show season gets underway there is a noticeable change in the show scene, with more and more established exhibitors rejecting the larger main shows in favour of the large and small classic shows.

The last two years have seen an increase in these, and the reason most traders have switched is the continued rent increases at the mainline shows.

Be it by a straight forward price hike, or the stealth method of leaving the prices the same, while  reducing the length of a show, claiming that the rent is being held.

We can only see this trend continuing as the rents at classic shows are much lower, as are the entry cost’s, so they are also drawing more visitors away from the main shows as well.

It is now quite normal for a trader to take the same or nearly the same from a one day classic, than they do from either day at a larger weekend show, the difference being of course the rent, meaning a far better profit margin.



After  over 1500 motorcycle shows & events, one of the most familiar stands at shows all over the UK, Europe and the USA “Crossbow Calendars” will no longer be exhibiting at any more shows.

After a show career over a 35 year period Crossbow’s John Winthrope said “I have served my time, and have enjoyed a great show career, but it’s now time to spend my twilight years with my family”.

The company’s last show was the BMF Show in Peterborough last May 2014, and the company are now concentrating on their online business.


Over this period many customers have become friends, and we would like to thank them for their support over the last 35 years.

Having sold the artwork side of the business 7 years ago to downsize their show stands, they recently sold their large pin badge business to Nottingham company “Fat Skeleton”, who will continue to serve show audiences with the largest range of biker pin badges in Europe.

As to the future Crossbow intend to introduce more of their own product lines, and continue to offer the service online that customers have received over the counter at bike shows.

This year's Show will again be be an international showcase of leading edge custom bike builders featuring the return of Hiroyouki Hirata of BB Custom Factory,  Hiroshima, Japan, who took 1st Place pro Builder at the 2011 Calendar Bike Building Championship. The foreign invasion wouldn't be complete without the addition of British ex-patriot Russell Mitchell / Exile Cycles who had his bike building career kick off at the LA Calendar Motorcycle Show and Iron & Lace Calendars some 15 years ago.

Other Calendar Bike Building Championship winners making their return to this year's Calendar Show include Best of Show and multiple Class winners Jim Giuffra and the beautiful spokes models of AFT Customs Plus last year's Best of Show winner Calin Senciac's Imagine Vehicles International motorsports fabrication shop with an exciting new Moto Guzzi Twin retro cafe racer.
