With The Machine Show a month away, our competition build is starting to take shape. Gasoline Motor Co. will be up against some of Australia's most passionate motorcycle builders, to completely rebuild a pre-1989 classic motorcycle for the competition. Commissioned to customise an 1986 BMW r65 late last year, we've taken this German OEM machine to the next level... #machineshowbuildcomp2019

Don't miss this years Machine Show in Braidwood. This motorcycle, along with 20 other pre-1989s era machines will be in the running for the Machine Show build competition. What started as a friendly rivalry between motorcycle builders around town, has, over 3 years, grown into a great motorcycling community get-together. Everyone is invited along for the ride down to Braidwood – a weekend of camping, live music, food trucks and booze.
