04-09 September Faak/Arneitz Campground
10th anniversary CUSTOM CHROME EUROPE Ride-In-Bike-Show Faak 2012. The Custom Chrome Europe Ride-In-Bike-Show at Lake Faak in Austria, held on Saturday of European Bike Week, is again inviting the best bikes of European Bike Week!
For years, the winners of the Faak „Ride In“ bike show have made magazine-covers: Fred Kodlin’s „Guilty“ of 2006 and AT Cycles’ „Stage II“ and Garage 65’s spectacular “Kosmo Drive” are well remembered examples. Again, the location will be the „Mainstreet“ of the Arneitz-Custom-Show, weather-proof and close to the stage-program, stunt shows and restaurants. The promise of this year´s „Arneitz-Custom-Show“ organizers was fulfilled: To raise the bar and
move the well established Arneitz customizer mile onto a new level!
Open from September 4th to 9th, continuous program including bike- and customizer-presentations will offer custombike infotainment at its best – with the Custom Chrome Europe Ride-In Bike Show as the definite highlight.
Every participant is welcome, the bikes will be judged by a highly specialised 10+ jury, selected from press members and custombike-specialists. The Custom Chrome International Bike Show
Series premiered at Faak in 2010, this year again, the class definitions will be adapted, yet the popular “ride-in” categories will be retained to allow the participants to win as many trophies as possible!
The entry for the bike show will open „high noon“ on Saturday after the parade, judgement will start at 3 p.m. and around 5.00 p.m. trophies will be handed out. The term „Ride-In“ has to be taken literally: Only bikes are allowed that are ridden into the event area: Participation will be international and the „Best of Show“ winner can be selected from any country. Even if you don’t make the trophy ranks, the international custom-press will be there on the hunt for the
hottest custombikes to be featured in their magazines!Full throttle is the rule rather than the exception for customparts market leader CUSTOM CHROME EUROPE at the European Bike Week! A special PRESS CONFERENCE referring to future plans with the Custom Chrome International Bike Show Series is in preparation and will be announced in time before the event. Like every year, you gotta expect the unexpected!
