The London International Custom Show taking place at Alexandra Palace over the weekend of 26th & 27th February is now just five weeks away and events are now starting to move very quickly.

Back Street Heroes are continuing to show their full support for the event, once again previewing the event heavily in the latest issue - click on the image to the right to view their new article.

As last year the event will host the UK affiliate round of the AMD World Championship of custom bike building, the first prize being £5,000 towards bike freight and related expenses for the winning builder to travel to Sturgis, South Dakota, USA to compete in the world championship itself. Last year one of the two London show winners, built by Shaw's Speed Shop of Lewes in Sussex, came home from Sturgis with the prize for the Worlds Best Modified Harley Davidson.

This year there will be four categories in the custom show, Modified Harley, BSH Invitational, Streetfighter and Freestyle. The editorial staff of Back Street Heroes the leading publication in the custom bike world has vetted all the entries and we are hoping to double last years entry list of 60 bikes. As well as first prize of £5,000 the Dutch based aftermarket parts and accessories firm, Zodiac International will be donating vouchers worth 1500 euros in three of the four classes.
