Suffolk-based custom motorcycle specialist Krazy Horse is staging a series of ‘summer nights’ at its new venue at Empire House, Lark Valley Business Park in Bury St Edmunds.
The specially- themed evenings of entertainment will be running on the first Thursday of the month. They will include a ‘Cafe Racer’ evening on 6 June, ‘Independence Day’ party on 4 July and ‘Weirdo Beardo’ evening (including a Best Beard Competition) on 1 August.
The late night openings will feature live bands and refreshments served from the ‘Rockers’ Cafe which will be open until 10.00pm.
Speaking on behalf of Krazy Horse, Paul Beamish says: ‘These evenings will start of the programme of entertainment that we want to be integral to our venue. We’re not just about custom bikes and Morgan car and three-wheelers, we’re about the whole retro theme, with clothing, music, food and live acts too – some events will be decidedly nostalgia-based and some not so. Everyone is welcome – this is a destination venue for all and we look forward to welcoming lots of new faces at Krazy Horse during these events.’
The evenings are being launched at a time when custom, go-fast motorcycles are enjoying widespread popularity in the UK and around the world, as the result of greater media interest created by programmes including Cafe Racer on the Discovery Channel on Sky TV and other car and bike restoration programmes.
The first evening will feature the newly-launched Krazy Horse and Ace Cafe London collaboration motorcycle, the Limited Edition Ace 1200 CR Street Special.
Ace Cafe London is the meeting place of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts from the UK and around the world. It embodies the ethos of the ‘Ton-Up’ boys who used the roadside cafe stop on the North Circular Road as the unofficial race track on which they attempted to reach 100mph on their bikes. This famous bike and car destination venue and meeting-place is the hub of the London going out scene; an icon dedicated to speed, music and culture.
The new cafe racer has been developed by Paul Beamish, who has a global reputation for custom-bike building. His brand new multi-million pound motorcycle, clothing and cafe facility specialises in custom Harley-Davidson aftermarket parts, servicing and bike-building for enthusiasts from all over the UK and around the world.
The bike’s power is based on the iconic v-twin engine from Harley-Davidson and its looks are most strikingly retro-style.
