Magic Bike Rüdesheim Ride-In Bikeshow
The Bikeshow at MAGIC BIKE RÜDESHEIM always had its own charm and character – and will be staged at a new and weather proof location central on the event site: Inside the party tent of Magic Bike. For this reason, the MAGIC BIKE tent will be equipped with a Custombike-approved ramp PLUS access for Bike Show competitors is possible via the exit barrier opposite of the train crossing. Bike show competitors HAVE to be in possession of the valid entrance band for MAGIC BIKE. As in previous years, the MAGIC BIKE SHOW remains a very compact and fast paced “Ride-In” Bikeshow.

Note on judgement
The judgment is performed by a jury of 10 to 15 members: custombike specialists, manufacturers, journalists and members of the Harley-Davidson-Europe Ride-In Show jury board. Judged will be for general look, technical and artistic brilliance, plus detailling and craftmanship of the bike. NOT TO BE JUDGED is the state of cleaning, especially if the bike is dirty from operation or riding. Judgement is done by an independent jury with no right to claim against the judgement of the jury. Exhibition of the bikes is at your own risk. MAGIC BIKE RUEDESHEIM is not responsible for any damage on the bikes during show and awards ceremony.
The Bike Show Team of MAGIC BIKE RÜDESHEIM may refuse entry to bikes that will not fit the exhibition because of style, details or theme.
