This motorcycle was without a doubt the largest of the show, measuring well over 10 feet in length. It began life as a 2007 Ducati L-Twin and has since morphed into a odd drag racer built by Super Rat. It was one of the only motorcycles that spectators were invited to climb on, lay on, and touch. “Nothing is sacred,” the builder says.Adam Waheed
One of the oldest bikes in this year’s show was this 1913 Excelsior. It features a 61ci V-twin engine (1,000cc) and was the first-ever motorcycle to exceed 100 mph. The original owner of this machine was a soldier in the first World War. He never returned home from the battlefield. Fast-forward to today and Steve Knepper is the fourth owner of this classic.Adam Waheed
The star of the show: Japanese builder Custom Works Zon shipped its creation from Japan especially for The One Show. This motorcycle debuted at the Mooneyes Hot Rod Custom Show in Yokohama, Japan. It features a 1,800cc boxer twin and rolls on a large pair of rims measuring 21-inch up front and 26-inch at the rear.Adam Waheed
