OCEAN EVENTS, the organizers of 2011's Custom Motorcycle Show (known as California Dreamin'), which was held in Bournemouth and was one of two UK shows affiliated to the World Championship of Custom Bike Building program, have announced a new location for the 2012 show. The event will now take place at Beaulieu over the weekend of 16/17 June 2012.

Beaulieu, in the UK's New Forest, which houses the National Motor Museum, will host the Custom Motorcycle Show alongside its already established annual 'Hot Rod and Custom Car Festival'.

Lorne Cheetham, Director of Ocean Events, said: "Beaulieu is a perfect venue for our event. With all the custom bikes, café racers and streetfighters sharing the magnificent showgrounds with hot rods and custom cars, the whole weekend is going to be one fantastic festival of motoring modification and customization.

"We are delighted to be working with Beaulieu on this show and hope to make the whole event the biggest of its kind in the UK."

Competition classes in the motorcycle show will be Freestyle, Modified Harley, Period Chopper, Daily Rider and Streetfighter/Performance Custom, with the overall Best in Show winner receiving a paid trip, complete with bike, to Sturgis, South Dakota, USA, for the World Championship of Custom Bike Building. In addition to the exhibiting custom bike dealers, retailers of custom accessories and hard parts, and the 'Vendors and Merchandise Village', there will also be a Ride-In on both days, with all riders of custom motorcycles invited into the event to show off their bikes.
