Since launching as a website designed to highlight some of the better and more unusual motorcycles being built within the burgeoning custom and cafe-race scene, the last eighteen months have seen The Bike Shed establish itself as a showcase event within the British motorcycling calendar.
The 2014 BSMC III (Bike Shed Motorcycle Club) exhibition which took place on 24th and 25th May 2014 at Tobacco Dock in London, is a celebration of all things related to the retro-classical motorbike scene. 
The exhibition showcases cafe racers, brat style scramblers and other custom motorcycles as well as an abundance of art, photography, design and culture, all of which celebrate the underground custom scene.
As well as hundreds of stunning bikes, the event also include such attractions as art, photography, film, gear, accessories, food, beer, cocktails, coffee, a barber shop, tattoos and the Distinguished Gentleman's Lounge.  According to Bike Shed : "Celebrate the new wave, cafe racer, brat style, scrambler/tracker custom creative culture with thousands of like minded people"
Bike builders in attendance ranged from Deus Ex Machina, Lamb Engineering, Krazy Horse customs, Spirit of the Seventies, Untitled Motorcycles, Kingdom of Kicks, Barbour, Triumph, Kevils Speedshop, Old Empire Motorcycles, Down & Out Cafe Racers & RB Kustoms to mention a few.
Run by the hugely popular Bike Shed, the event is now in its second year.
