“We are inspired by the history & engineering of these machines and the many talented builders that breathe new life into this vintage iron. It is our mission to create a community that connects and inspires motorcycle builders, vendors, sponsors, and enthusiasts.”
The Congregation Show has quickly become one of our favorite annual events. It takes place at Charlotte’s 76-acre Camp North End, the city’s largest assemblage of historic buildings, which has been home to everything from Ford Model-T assembly lines to Army missile production. The show itself takes place in the old Ford factory itself, which was designed in 1924 to serve as an art factory and showroom to exhibit Henry Ford’s new invention: the assembly line. There was even a Model-T milk truck in attendance that had been built in this very same building more than 90 years ago!
This year’s show was bigger and better than ever. The BikeBound team was fortunate enough to attend, catch up with old friends, and meet some new ones. Below, we’ve included some of our favorite bikes and cars from the show. All photography by painter/photographer AJ Grey.
