“Visitors will see great custom motorcycles and hotrods, top tattooists in action, live music, dancers and a wide selection of stalls and dealer stands, as well as food vendors and a bar.

“We think this is the going to be the largest single day event of its type in Europe and, as far as we are aware the world,” he added.
