NOTHING FOR PEOPLE WHO IRON THEIR SOCKS!
Whenever Social Lifestyle Lover meets it’s celebrated hardly! At the Kustom Kulture Forever Show 2015 this tradition has not been broken. Since 2013, the KKF (formerly Bottrop Kustom Kulture) takes place in Herten – it is now one of the largest Kustom Kulture shows in the world.
The KKF show in Herten is known worldwide not only for the cars and motorcycles, but also for the large number of high-profile Kustom Kulture artists from all over the world, as well as the Classic Tradition Tattoo Show. On display were 250 pre 1965 Hot Rods & Kustom Cars, pre 1979 Lowrider, pre 1979 Vans in the 60-70 style, pre 1979 Radical Aircooled VW’s and about 150 Choppers and Bobber Bikes.
Kustom Kulture is the generic term for art, vehicles, hairstyles and clothing style of members of the customizing scene, which rebuilds and refines cars and motorcycles. From the beginning of hot rodding in the USA in the 1950s, various fashion trends and styles have developed that still affect our daily lives today. Artists such as Von Dutch, racing car designers such as “Big Daddy” Ed Roth, hot rod and lowrider customizers like the Barris brothers, as well as numerous tattoo artists, automakers and television shows such as Happy Days have contributed to the development of today’s Kustom Kulture.
Each of these youth movements has its own types of change as well as clothing and music styles included. Coupled with cartoons and monster movies from the 1950s to the 1970s, this has made Kustom Kulture the complex subculture it is today.
