January 16th-19th 2020 – the Custom Chrome Europe team starts its anniversary year in Italy!
A strong start into the year 2020 – and Motor Bike Expo in Verona surely was the place to be! The old fair town at the foot of the Brenner has now hosted the 12th Motor Bike Expo at the Fiera Verona – and visitors and exhibitors underlined the importance of the Italian show which starts the motorcycle season south of the Alps. Especially Saturday and Sunday saw the expected crowds arriving from all over north Italy and even Austria, while Thursday and Friday are now established days for customizers and trade visitors but open to the interested public, too!
The CCE team started strongly with the uncovering of the Thunderbike-built 50th Anniversary custombike: With outstanding attention of the visiting press and a list of top names of the customizing world attending the unveiling, Thursday morning the CCE booth was “packed” with curious visitors to see the new custombike. Attending from the “manufacturer side” were Kim and Andreas Bergerforth of Thunderbike, Cory Ness, Wolfgang Wakolbinger and Klaus Peinbauer of BSL, later joined by Livio Rebuffini. Kirk Taylor, creator of the 40th Anniversary CCI-Bagger, joined from his “Clubstyle Bike Show” display in hall 3.
Italian CCE Sales Rep, Ivano Segato and Jaime Sagrado from CCE Spain were busy talking to Italian clients and dealers at Motor Bike Expo: Many Southern European visitors are present on this event to get fresh ideas and inspiration from some 800+ customized motorcycles of all styles presented on displays and bike shows.
Part of one of the biggest Custom Chrome Europe displays ever in Verona was the busy “Live-Photoshoot Action” studio set-up of renowned custombike journalist and “Motographer” Horst Roesler, who lined up and “motographed” the top bikes of Motor Bike Expo 2020 for the international magazines and websites. Some will soon be introduced at the CCE websites, as they came from CCE partners.
With all 2019/20 „Bolt On And Ride“ bikes present, Thunderbike and BSL bikes and parts on display, the 50th Anniversary Custom Chrome booth was not to be missed – and meeting one of the most experienced and dedicated teams in the custombike business was surely a great way to start the season at Motor Bike Expo 2020!
