We have professed throughout the years that the Mooneyes Hot Rod and Custom Show in Yokohama, Japan was the best custom bike show in the world. Now in its 27th year the event still eclipses any and all shows the world over. It is not just one single factor that makes the Mooneyes HRCS the show of shows. it is in fact an intricate combination of factors that makes it shine above the rest.
The location of the event is one of the main reasons that the show is so good. Being on the water in Yokohama, Japan makes it a very exciting indeed. The quality and variance of custom bikes (and cars) is at a concours-type level making the show one for the ages. The fact that it is a single-day show also gives it a certain amount of charm and the rush to see everything in one day also adds to the excitement. But the main reason this show is tops is the staff who put this thing together. Shige Suganuma and his crew are both welcoming and gracious, yet are able to get the job done wrangling builders, advising tourism adventures, and organizing both the HRCS in Japan and the Mooneyes X-Mas party half the world apart in the space of a single week. As you can see this event is not just a pretty face, but a well oiled machine with a million moving parts. for more info on anything mOOn, hit up: mooneyes.com
