2018 - Fuel for Fantasy
Phew! We were almost relieved to find a few halfway normal bikes among the really well thought out and executed examples of custom machinery in this show of wrenching savvy, antiquated two wheeled transportation and plain good taste. You can tell these dudes think that time can’t be spent any better than in the garage and on the open road. The high percentage of awesome bikes went together well with the venerable venue, which is a complex of former industrial buildings dating from the 1900s, now in use as artists’ studios and event location, close to the shores of mighty Lake Erie. The FUEL Cleveland Show used the main hall, which is filled with artefacts ranging from vintage hoists, cranes and insects to mannequins and huge suspended geometric structures, giving a David-Lynch-inspired feel to the show.
