A motorcycle dealership which builds custom bikes says its first event for petrol-heads has sparked interest from all over the world.
Around 150 people descended on Krazy Horse in Bury St Edmunds for a preview of the very latest in iconic motorcycles, three-wheeler street-machines, designer clothing, bike parts and accessories.
Industry representatives travelled from Japan, Sweden and Switzerland for the event, as well as from London, Bournemouth and Gloucestershire.
Managing director Paul Beamish said: “We are delighted that so many people attended this first event.”
The newly-opened retail and leisure outlet features the all-new Rockers Cafe, a collaboration with the world-famous bike and car destination venue and meeting-place, Ace Cafe London.
The larger bike facility at Empire House, Lark Valley Business Park, is on the periphery of Bury St Edmunds.
Paul added: “There was something here for everyone. The venue is the ideal showcase for these bikes, three-wheelers and custom and classic cars. We’ve got world leading names including Zero Engineering , Indian Kiwi Motorcycles and Morgan on display – so there was plenty for everyone to see. And the clothes, food, music and milkshakes proved popular too.”
Krazy Horse, which has developed a worldwide reputation for building custom bikes, was started by Paul Beamish as a hobby, but when he couldn’t get the parts he needed locally he established a shop that has continued to expand since opening in 1996.
