CALIFORNIA Dreamin' Expo is the latest custom motorcycle show to be added to the international affiliate program of the Official World Championship of Custom Bike Building.

The new show, to be held over the weekend of 28-29 May 2011 at the Bournemouth International Centre, Bournemouth, on the UK's south coast, is being organized by Ocean Events and features Battistinis UK as the title sponsor.

As an affiliate to the World Championship program, custom bike builders entering their latest builds in the show will compete to win a GBP £5,000 bike freight and related expenses prize to travel to Sturgis to take part in the World Championship itself.

Lorne Cheetham, Managing Director of the event organizer, Ocean Events, says the California Dreamin' Expo will "represent a new concept approach to bike exhibitions, bringing riders and enthusiasts of all aspects of the custom motorcycle lifestyle together with custom motorcycle builders, retailers, dealers and parts and accessory manufacturers and distributors as part of a 'riders' meet' gathering."

In addition to the custom bikes on display and in the competition, the show will also have a catwalk show featuring models displaying the latest trends in biker clothing, helmets and accessories, custom industry workshops and demonstrations and a keynote speech delivered by a key figure from the custom bike industry.

Mark Battistini, Director of title sponsors Battistinis, said of his involvement with the California Dreamin' Expo: "We are delighted to get involved with what we know will be a spectacular show opportunity for custom, classic and performance bike enthusiasts from all over Europe. It will also be a great opportunity for dealers and customizers to meet and do business with suppliers and manufacturers."

A further attraction over the weekend will be the Bournemouth Tattoo Convention, which is taking place in adjoining show halls to the California Dreamin' Expo with discount offers being made available on tickets for attendees of both events.

Further details of affiliate custom show classes, judging and schedule will appear in upcoming AMD editions.
