Back alley bike show

Rode out to Greenpoint, Brooklyn after work on Saturday night. Met up with the SuspectsUnlimited crew for some grub at Coco68. After BSin' and eating/drinking we headed around the corner to the 1st Annual Brooklyn Invitational Custom Motorcycle Show... wow that was a mouthful.

It was held in an abandoned industrial building which houses the Autumn Bowl skate park.

this is someone else's photo of the Autumn Bowl below.... I hadn't pulled out my camera yet to take photos... and by the time I pulled it out the bowl was filled with skaters and a band playing.

after wandering down the dirt alley we walk inside......

Though many of the bikes weren't completely functional (missing vital parts)
the creativity and artistic expression of the builders was overflowing. They were definitely machines of art.
