Downtown Los Angeles in sunny, Southern California saw countless custom motorcycles displayed at the debut of the Outlier's Guild Motorcycle show. The vision of Jay LaRossa of Lossa Engineering, Stan Chen, John Pangilinan and Ralph Holguin of RMD Garage, the 'OG' Moto show was an eclectic mix of everything under the sun: café racers, bobbers, classics, trackers, scramblers, old school choppers, modern classics and brat bikes, all rolled into one show. "I didn't want to have it be a competition, with trophies and all, not this show. I just wanted people to come out and enjoy the bikes for what they are," said Jay LaRossa, who owns a high-profile custom motorcycle shop in Signal Hill, California. "The venue worked out well though, when we first walked in, we knew we had to have the show here."

The show, housed in the Container Yard in the arts district of Downtown Los Angeles, attracted many fans of custom motorcycle culture, along with enthusiasts alike. The event was free and open to the public, and it wasn't long before the well-organized show floor was teeming with hundreds of interested individuals. The show also featured motorcycle-related artwork, photography, sculptures and more. Some vendors were also on hand to display their products and brands, however there was a noticeable separation between the vendor area and the show floor, making for one very clean, well-organized and captivating show experience. Here's a gallery of just a few of the many, many amazing bikes from the show.

This custom 2015 MV Agusta Brutale 800RR was built by Michael 'Woolie' Woolaway of Deus Ex Machina in Los Angeles. It was designed to capture the spirit of the vintage Tourist Trophy racing, and as a tribute to Giacomo Agostini's racing career through the 60's and 70's.Photo: Brody Cox

Can you believe that this started out as a stock 2016 Indian Scout? Builder Roland Sands even split a stock gas tank in half in the same style as the classic Indian race bikes.Photo: Brody Cox

This Yamaha SR500 had a super-cool retro flake paint job, but a small vertical strip on the left side was left raw — so the fuel level could be observed through the thin-walled fiberglass. Neat!Photo: Brody Cox

It might look funny to us, but this style of motorcycle modification, known as 'Bosozoku' from Japan has roots that go all the way back to the '50s when the automotive industry began to expand there. The members of these clubs would modify their bikes, often illegally, and would ride the streets of Japan, taunting the local law enforcement in dangerous manners.Photo: Joe Alves

Just when you thought you'd seen everything, it turns out the OG Moto Show had even more up its sleeve — specifically this crazy diorama of a Hooligan Flat Track race, which was a striking resemblance to the majority of live-action Hooligan races I've seen myself, complete with gnarly wipeouts!Photo: Joe Alves
