FUEL Cleveland

by Savannah Rose on July 31, 2018

FUEL Cleveland is officially marketed to, "Lovers of antiquated modes of two wheeled transportation. Those who value building things with their own two hands. People of the mindset that time in the garage and on the open road is better spent than most other endeavors."

It's an invitational show featuring custom builds, rare bikes, artists, photographers, and it's all carefully curated. Set in a warehouse, that now houses SkidMark Garage, the urban decay adds to the atmosphere of the steel and art inside.

In the days before the event, the pre-party and Flat Out Friday started the buzz, leading up to the actual show itself.

Saturday morning, I arrived at the venue - a run down looking building, in a lot with a scrapyard - a perfect setting. Walking in, you're greeted with a variety of motorcycles - from Anna Lee's stretched chop, to Dunworth's Sporty tracker, to Jason Ochoa's S&S KN93 powered chop. Race bikes, HD® XR900s, Triumphs, a Kawaski chop built by Heather L and her husband, Christian Newman's Sporty build, Brad Gregory's de-rake, and a chop from Led Sled Customs. Vintage bikes, including an unrestored pan, a servi-car, and so much more.

Metal fencing lines the edges of the venue, featuring photos from some incredible photographers, paintings and more. Leading into a back room, there were many vendors, from tin-type photographs, to parts from TrackerDie, Led Sled, W&W, and various vendors selling vintage, magazines, and more.

Old Bike Barn & Himalayan Heroes raffled off a trip to ride Royal Enfield Himalayans in far away lands, and a raffle also gave away some Lincoln Electric welders and a custom built ironhead.

This event had the perfect setting - enough room to move around comfortably, yet full of excitement and people. Everywhere you looked, friends gathered together around drinks and bikes and had a blast.

Now, enough telling you about it, check out the photos to see the best of Fuel Cleveland.
