Tin Can Customs - BBQ

These are interesting times for the custom scene in Amsterdam.
Since we organized Rusty Gold last year a lot of cool stuff is happening in Amsterdam.
Numbnut Customs came out of nothing. They recently finished their first two bikes and organized the Numbnut Ride Out #1 the day before Rusty Gold 2013.
An other custom shop opened recently in Amsterdam. Tin Can Customs.
And an other new kid on the block is Cool Kid Custom, stationed at the overtoom in Amsterdam.
(De oplettende kijker had ze al gespot tussen mn foto's van Rusty Gold 2013.)
Rumors are Boy Janssens Pancake Customs will update his facebook page soon.
Dimitri from the Amsterdam based Super Motor Company is working on his 3rd  Super Custom, the Dirty Donkey
So yes! Seems like the custom scene in Amsterdam is finally taking off!

The night before Rusty Gold and just after the Numbnut Ride Out #1, Tin Can customs organized a BBQ. Lot's of dudes from the Chopperstyle.nl forum where there with their cool customs.

Tin Can was working on a very nice old skool cb750 chopper with an interesting kick stand :)At night we found out that shit happens when your riding on your friends cb750 chopper in the dark with your black bubble visor. It wasn't me :)
But a few beers later it was fixed.  
Roel Scheffers was present with his out of this world RS09 Beemer.
Lot's of nice people from chopperstyle.nl came to the bbq from all over the place.
I saw the coolest Goldwing sidecar.
You have to see the  radical XS650 with the build in flame thrower with your owne eyes!
