Crocus Expo Center, Moscow
Russia April 1st – 3rd 2011
FOLLOWING the stunning success scored at the World Championship last year by 2010 ‘Moscow’ winner Fine Custom Mechanics (FCM) and multi¬-award winner Yuri Shif, this year’s Moscow Custom & Tuning Show looks set to see the impressive progress of Russian custom motorcycle engineering that has been seen internationally in recent rears ramp-up as the show’s Championship program affiliation stimulates the Russian market.
The Custom & Tuning Expo is owned and operated by Dimitry Khitrov of Russian online custom magazine RU Riders fame, and is staged at Moscow’s primary motorcycle show, Motopark Expo, which attracts up to 70,000 consumers over its three days.
Having won in Moscow in 2009, and then gone on to share 18th place, FCM followed that up with a 2010 Moscow win with their white Ultima engined single downtube framed rigid appropriately called ‘Moscow’, with which they scooped 9th place at Sturgis in 2010.
Yuri Shif, from Belarus, is also no stranger to international success, but having taken second and third at Moscow last year, and the international affiliate win, among other awards in Europe in 2010, at Verona last January, he was voted third in the 2010 World Championship with his radical BMW engined Bonneville style racer called ‘The Machine’.
