This past April 28-30 was the 14th annual edition of The One Moto Show in Portland, Oregon, created by the fine folks of See See Motorcycles. Founded in 2009, “The 1 Moto” as become one of the world’s largest and best custom motorcycle shows, showcasing a vast array of bikes, builders, and moto-inspired art.
“The heart and soul of the show remain the unparalleled collection of 300+ custom-built motorcycles that will be on display inside the historic Zidell Yards Barge Building.
The almost century-old abandoned shipyard smells of old grease and metal work and is the perfect textured backdrop to celebrate custom motorcycles, community and fun.” —The1Moto.com
This massive 122,000 square-foot open-air structure was used to build ships in the 1930s. More than 300 bikes were on display this year, and other highlights included a vendor mall, bands every night, and several different motorcycle stunt shows.
For 2023, our man on the ground was once again Fouad “Moh” Mohiadeen (@astronaut_bear), a Baghdad-born, Portland-raised Navy veteran with three combat air medals. He’s a diehard moto aficionado and exotic car chaser, and the founder of Panigale Riders.
Since we have many photos, we’ve decided to split the show coverage into several segments, highlighting different types of bikes. First up are the cafe racers and race bikes of various stripes.
Without further ado, here are our highlights from the show!
