Pandemics happen, but the show must go on. And despite the massive odds, The One Moto Show managed to pull itself together for another awesome event in 2021, this time held under the huge metal eaves of the Zidell Barge Building, a historic former shipbuilding location. For some, it was one of the first real custom moto events to ramp up again after a year of lockdowns, and despite the smaller crowds—due to safety protocols—the folks in attendance were clearly stoked to be out among their own people once again.
The Barge Building is a huge steel building originally made for ship breaking (and then repurposed for barge building) so it was an almost ideal venue for custom motorcycles, all kinds of moto art, the 21 Helmets exhibit, and even the Seattle Cossacks stunt team buzzing around in the parking lot outside. There were demos from Indian and Zero. Thor Drake and company never disappoint, and this year was no different, with a flat-track racing component to wrap up the weekend’s activities happening on Sunday evening (although an hour away on I-5). The spaced-out environment never felt too crowded and the custom builds had us dropping jaws, as usual. Prizes were given out in various categories, but mostly, it was just great to see some familiar faces and their machines once again.
