Hall 1 is the traditional “Bike Show” display hall with the main “showcase” for the massive bikeshow by Low Ride Magazine.

MBE Award History

Thunderbike parts information can be found at the Custom Chrome Europe booth (Padiglione/Hall 2 Booth 16 J) during MOTOR BIKE EXPO 2023 and follow our MBE news and aftershow-report at our website.

You can find Thunderbike Parts and original Harley-Davidson Parts  in our online shop.

In 2020, the Custom Chrome Europe team had celebrated 50 years of Custom Chrome, the “mother” having been founded in California in 1970 – and a major part of thet event was the presentation of the Thunderbike-built “50th” Anniversary Custom.

Held with restrictions during the 2021 and 2022 dates as travelling and working in Covid times was somewhat difficult all over Europe, Motor Bike Expo moved to summer dates and now returns to its traditional spot.

The “MBE” is considered one of the most important and prestigious event in the world for custom motorcycles. A reference point for the most prestigious brands in the motorcycle industry, from special to sport, including the off-road and touring scene. Over 160,000 visitors meet in Verona, a number that grows every year.

The 2020 Team of Custom Chrome Europe, BSL and Thunderbike: The Austrian Exhaust manufacturer will again exhibit “back-to-back” with the CCE team.

Press and visitors attended the uncovering of CCE’s 50th Anniversary custom.

Kirk Taylor, Cory Ness, Andreas Bergerforth, Axel Scherer and BSL-Wolfgang.

For the MBE dealers and staff, the Custom Chrome Europe team staged a big party between halls 1 and 2 – in January 2020!
