A little while ago, we covered Indian Motorcycles’ “biggest yet” Riders Fest (2023 IRF) – a stunning effort celebrating Indian bikes that saw more than 3000 attendees milling about from 39 different nationalities.

A huge part of the IRF was Indian’s 2023 Budweis Indian Custom Motorcycle Show – a dedicated space for the insane talent of custom bike builders across Europe proper.

Naturally, we were hankering a front-row peek at what everybody came up with, so Indian’s recent press release delivered in spades… per usual.

Apparently, this is the “only custom show to be 100 percent dedicated to Indian Motorcycles,” and it allowed fee-free, ride-in applicants, with but a single stipulation to be eligible:

“If it runs, you’re in!”

The Director of Industrial Design for Indian Motorcycle, Ola Stenegärd (Ola ended up not being able to make it, so Gary Gray - VP of Racing, Technology and Service for Indian Motorcycle - stepped in). Media sourced from Indian Motorcycles.

6 classes and 32 bikes dressed the stage, scrutinized by industry biggies like Madness Photography owner/founder Onno Wieringa and the Director of Industrial Design for Indian Motorcycle, Ola Stenegärd (Ola ended up not being able to make it, so the Show got a recorded message while Gary Gray – VP of Racing, Technology and Service for Indian Motorcycle – stepped in).

All in all, a fantastically fun time, saturated with eyegasms like the following:
