Art on Two Wheels: The One Moto Show

I recently had the pleasure of attending my favorite motor-based event – the One Moto Show.

See See Motor Coffee Co. Organized by, it is one of the most well-known custom motorcycle shows in the world, and for good reason.

For me, this year’s event was extra great. The tallest Jedel Barge building in Portland’s southwestern waters encloses more than 200 skillfully built motorcycles.

Cubwebs and antique factory equipment nicely complement the Granji See See ethos.

What makes this show special is its cross-medium nature. Bikes are displayed as art by modern stuntmen and vintage era performers.

Not only that, the underlying motorcycle culture has been fully embodied. Vendors selling vintage Harley-Davidson T-shirts, handicraft leather goods and jumpsuits, while food carts with artist-painted helmets, crusty bands, vintage American cars and ‘Chicken N’ guns were spotted all over the interior.

There was no detailed opportunity left.

The behind-the-scenes look at the event included many talented individuals, each of whom has added a very detailed part to the whole. The results were irresistible in the best way.

The main body of the show had really nice bikes, but the schedule included several over-the-top live performances.

The first performance I encountered was the Icon Show. Rob Carpenter, Shawn Sets and a small collaborator created quite a scene when they fought with each other, Sport Bike vs. Dart Bike vs. V-Twin.

Next up was Aaron Colton, a Red Bull Street freestyle rider who seems to have become one with the electric bike he rode. It is rare to see such difficult techniques as natural.

In the afternoon, the Seattle Cossacks serve motorcycle acrobatics in a nostalgic tone.

I went to three One Moto shows and every year they get better. With success comes more success and Thor Drake of CC is definitely fulfilling a beautiful dream. I’ll go with you The monster Gallery below.
