A clash of bike cultures – by artist Conrad Leach
As seen at The BikeShed
On 11 and 12 April, London’s custom motorcycle show ‘The BikeShed’ opened its doors for the first time in Paris, situated at the Carreau du Temple. Punctuating the dizzying line-up of café racers, brats and bobbers was an impressive spread of supporting suppliers and artists – Conrad Leach offered this stunning selection of signed Giclée prints. Known as: Gary, Speedway, Gloves Off and Norton Jack, the prints depict scenes from classic road racing, speedway, board-track and flat-track disciplines.
Two bike cultures, united
Speaking to Classic Driver, Leach said, “Limited to just 100 examples each, the prints were taken from part of a show that took place last year in Los Angeles, called ‘United State’, examining the influence USA and UK bike culture had on each other from the '50s to '80s. The BikeShed event continues to go from strength to strength and I wish the organisers every success for round two in London, in May.”
