Ace Cafe London is delighted to announce that Russell Mitchell has agreed to act as Honorary Custom Show Grand Marshal at the forthcoming AMD affiliated Ace Cafe London Motorcycle and Custom Show to be held at Alexandra Palace 26th - 28th February 2010

For ten years now, native Brit Russell Mitchell has operated Exile Cycles in Los Angeles, California, manufacturing custom parts, accessories and signature-styled custom bikes. Producing around twenty complete custom bikes each year, his designs have garnered acclaim and hundreds of magazine features around the globe for their clean, tough, industrial styling. A Discovery Channel "Biker Build Off", "World Bike Build Off" and Official World Championship competitor, Russell now hosts his own show on the U.S. Speed Channel network. Within the motorcycle industry, Russell enjoys a considerable design and engineering reputation that goes far deeper than the full-body tattoos and blonde hair that have made him so publicly recognisable.

Also appearing at the show are Jenny Tinmouth, courtesy of , the UKs fastest female TT racer in 2009 and who has just taken her first Super Sport Cup podium place with a Honda CBR1000RR 'blade and Steve "Mr Showman" Colley with his trials based motorcycle stunt team.  Steve will be performing amazing stunts and tricks, including with the world famous "Mono Bike", which has no front wheel or front brake!  As well as wheelies, stoppies, jumps over people and drop offs, Steve has a display stand where show visitors can come and view the bikes and chat with Steve. 

Zodiac, sponsor of the AMD affiliated "Free Style" Class of the Custom Bike Build Championship, will be debuting their new 1000+hp supercharged Top Fuel Harley drag bike, together with their show truck and stand. 

 H-D to back Ace Custom Show with Modified Harley Class Sponsorship

Harley-Davidson UK has confirmed that it is to back the London Ace Cafe custom show with sponsorship of the prestigious Modified Harley-Davidson class at 'Ally 'Pally' London, February 26th - 27th.

Harley has agreed to put up a contingency prize of GBP 5,000.00 of Official Harley-Davidson parts, accessory and merchandise credit, GBP 3,000.00 of which goes to the class winner.

On behalf of Harley-Davidson in the UK Parts, Accessories and General Merchandise Brand Manager Allan Brownridge told AMD that "it is good to see that the UK is to get the kind of custom event that the market has needed; being a part of the World Championship Affiliate event programme we here at Harley are pleased to be able to add our name and backing to the event.

"Shows like this can only be good for the mission that everybody shares of spreading the custom message to the widest possible audience. As the premier supplier of customisation products for our own motorcycles we see this as a valuable opportunity to encourage and promote the values of personalisation and creativity that are at the heart of everything that we do, and of custom motorcycling itself."
