Bigtwin Bikeshow & Dealer Expo 2012

Rosmalen, The Netherlands

The 21st Bigtwin Bikeshow & Dealer Expo, organized by leading Dutch custom bike magazine Bigtwin.
Bigtwin Magazine is focused on the real riders, bikers that design and build their own bikes, any make, any model, any budget, and that clearly reflects the show. It's not only the high-end bikes and parts that make it to the Autotron in Rosmalen in The Netherlands, the home-build, low-budget bikes build in garages and small workshops are there too, to show people what can be made out of cheap bikes with average tools. This year the Bigtwin Bikeshow & Dealer Expo saw over 100 custom bikes in the show, some 250 bikes at over 150 exhibitors booths. 

 Although it being november already, the beautiful weather did many people decide to come by bike. Outside, at the entrance, some vendors even set up their stalls.    

Once inside the first thing your eye's were attracted to, was this year's World Champion Custom Bike Builder; Thunderbike's 'PainTTless' Sportster.
