Now in its ninth year, the Brooklyn Custom Invitational Bike Show has become the place to see and be seen for motorcyclists from all over the Northeast. From ground-up custom choppers to beautifully restored vintage rides, the Invitational sets them all up in an art gallery in Brooklyn's trendy Williamsburg section, giving these rolling pieces of industrial art the spotlight and reverence they deserve.
Oh yeah, and it's a heckuva party. Just don't spill your beer on the bikes.
