Get ready for #GarageBuiltShow2018

The fifth annual Woodstock Moto Co. Garage Built Show is set to take over Barron Street again, on the 1st of December 2018. This moto-centric street festival will once again be stacked with entertainment for both motorcyclists, and those that are simply moto-curious.

We're upping the ante this year by more than doubling the number of motorcycles on show. We're curating a selection of professional and garage-built customs, classics and oddities. These will be exhibited alongside art and photography, with a selection of helmet art pieces up for auction.

It's not all motorcycles; we're bringing back live music for 2018, with The Damned Crows, Jo Martin Band and Jak Tomas playing to you live and loud from the Band Garage.

Harley-Davidson Cape Town will be there with their Jump Start. It's essentially a Harley on a treadmill, and is perfect for those who've never ridden before to get a taste of what it feels like to twist the throttle. They'll also be doing a live build on one of their bikes.

Motul South Africa are taking over the DIY workshop...and you can get involved! Test out their workshop products on some greasy old parts to see just how well they work, or get a closer look at their MC Care range of products. Their technical staff will also be on site to answer any questions you may have about their range of superior lubricants.

Woodstock mainstays Striped Horse will once again provide golden nectar to quench your thirst. Don't expect any queues though, as they pour using the brilliant Bottoms Up system, ensuring fast, cold, delicious beer! Various food vendors, and the WMC bar, will be on hand to keep you fed and refreshed.

We're also hosting Rook Cycles, Originale Ducati enthusiasts, Quicksure Motorcycle Insurance and so much more.

WMC merch including T-shirts, beanies, mugs, water canisters and limited edition Garage Built caps will be on sale! 

To keep things speedy on the day, please use cash or SnapScan for payments!

We want your bikes!

2017 WMC x Motul Garage Built Show

On the 2nd of December 2017 the Woodstock Moto Co and Motul hosted the annual Garage Built Show, Cape Town’s only alt-moto show supported by Harley Davidson. This was the 4th GBS event and it was bigger and better than ever, once again transforming Barron Street into a moto-heaven for all ages.

The motorcycle industry's been hard hit in recent years, but we at the Woodstock Moto Co. are committed to changing this downward trend. Our slogan is 'Motorcycles for Everyone,' so regardless of what you ride—or if you even ride at all—you're welcome at the GBS!

WMC Garage Built Show


The GBS exists to expose people to the motorcycle in a new way: as art, as a vehicle for self-expression, and as a ticket to a good times. The show packs in gorgeous and interesting bikes, art, photography, live music, great food and drink, and everything in between.

Contact us to find out how you can get involved.

A huge thank you to The House of Machines our 2016 Headline sponsors who made it possible for us to put on the show.
