The One Motorcycle Show 2013

It seems like Portland’s weather was on it’s best behavior for the weekend of the One Motorcycle Show (Feb 8/9/10)- giving everyone (even fair weather riders) a chance to pull their bikes off the tenders, give ‘em a wash and ride them in to the show.

Four years in a row now the One Show has attracted a variety of attendees. As it’s progressed the reach has stretched beyond motorcyclists to include designers, artists, and those who appreciate looking at pretty things. Which is basically everyone, right? Thor Drake has developed an inviting and evolving culture within Portland which can not only be seen in the One Show but also See See Coffee & Motorcycles, one of the main moto hubs in Portland. 

The second year of the 1 motorcycle show was inside a somewhat gutted two-level industrial warehouse. While Pabst flew out of the coolers and burn outs were a-plenty… it was dimly lit and fell short of the glory that has been achieved this year and last. An estimated 10+ thousand people attended over a three day period. Shows like this usually gather steam over the course of five or ten years, while the One Motorcycle Show managed it almost immediately. 

Prepare for an onslaught of photos. There are even more on facebook. I had my camera on my hip pretty much all day Friday, Saturday, and for most of Sunday even during clean up. This is literally going to be the longest blog post I’ve ever done. So go take a potty break, get a bag of crisps or whathaveyou, because this is going to be a doozie.

This badassery is still going on ALL weekend. It’s free. It’s good. Come on down!

The other day I posted Angie Cooper and her Triumph T120 chopper barn find… I wanted to share this 1978 Triumph 750 Bonneville 750CC T120 that will be on display at the One Motorcycle Show this weekend here in Portland. 

Hard to pin a year and model on this bike, but the motor is a 1978 750cc T120 Bonneville, everything else is from random years or fabricated.
