Just in time for the 10th anniversary of Revival Cycles’ Handbuilt Show in Austin, the esteemed brand of Alan Stulberg is branching out to Los Angles for the first Handbuilt Invitational.  The Handbuilt ethos is the same, to display “machines built by amateurs and professionals” with the aim of inspiring people “to work with their hands, and try and improve or repair every physical thing they own and interact with.”  That’s a lofty ideal for a motorcycle show…but this new iteration of the Handbuilt vibe has grown to include cars, with invited builder/collectors including heavy hitters like Icon 4×4, the Philip Sarofim collection, Jay Leno‘s Garage, the Petersen Automotive Museum, ArtCenter College of Design, and Race Service.  That’s in addition to the usual two-wheel suspects like Shinya Kimura (‘most Shinya builds in one room ever’) Roland Sands Design, Christian Sosa Metalworks, and Bryan Fuller Moto.  It’s an experimental mix, and should prove popular, as the social media power of the included businesses is in the mega-millions.

The expanded focus for LA includes a ‘female forward’ area that includes Stellar Brand, RealDeal Workshoppe, and invited womyn builders.  Mobile entertainment will be provided by Red Bull stunt rider Aaron Colton, the ever-popular Ives Brothers Wall of Death, and Saturday night live music by The Lion Heart.  Our Cannonball buddy Craig Jackman (American Electric Tattoo Co.) will be laying ink on skin, if you’re so inspired.
