Event raises the roof


Cockburn Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

MO­TOR­CY­CLES be­long on the road, not on the roof, but that is ex­actly where the Ride on Rooftop Retro Bike Show will be when it comes to Fre­man­tle next month.

More than 50 retro and cus­tom bikes will be on dis­play on the Many 6160 rooftop, an event which or­gan­iser Robert Glenton said could be the first of its kind in the world.

“It’s far more than just a bike show, it is a cel­e­bra­tion of the retro/cus­tom life­style and in­cludes vin­tage bikes and scoot­ers, retro cus­toms such as 1860s and 70s chop­pers, vin­tage hot rods, live mu­sic all day,” he said.

“One idea was to have a sort of street show and dur­ing dis­cus­sions with the coun­cil about li­cens­ing such an event for al­co­hol, the events co-or­di­na­tor men­tioned there had been a bar on the roof of the old Myer build­ing.

“A bike show, on a rooftop, in the middle of a tourist hotspot? Surely not! It was a dream that came off in spec­tac­u­lar fash­ion.”

The Ride on Rooftop Retro Bike Show is on April 2 from 4pm on the Many 6160 rooftop.

Tick­ets are $20. Chil­dren ad­mit­ted free. Visit www.face­book.com/rideon­bikeshow.
