Custom Bike Show
Although Stomin’ the Castle is not a festival so to speak, it is one of the North East's biggest Bike Rally & Custom Bike Shows. The Custom Bike Show is one of the largest in England and has some interesting and novel entries, which has become accustomed for the Stormin’. It is sponsored by the legendary Back Street Heroes (BSH) magazine, so you can be guaranteed of mantel piece worthy trophy if you win. The first 100 entries receive a limited edition t-shirt, sponsored by Johnson of Leeds (Army surplus suppliers form Leeds).
The Show usually has three judges; recently at least two of them have been builders themselves, however they have not entered bikes. The rally is completely run by volunteers and all profits go to the Motorcycle Action Group.
More details will be here when available.
