2017 The ONE Moto Show Photo Review

The saying goes, if these walls could talk. The 100 year old foundry walls of a weathered worn factory in an industrial district of Portland would say how it came alive last weekend, the din of a 1000 conversations bouncing of its walls and its floors filled with a dizzying montage of motorcycles and memorabilia. The craftsmanship on display at this year’s ONE Show was off the charts, from the intricate throttle linkage of Christian Sosa’s Knuckle-dragger to the tail section of 40 Cal Customs “Tennessee Waltz,” whose 1923 Harley JD powered racer won top honors in the show. Every time you’d find a favorite you’d walk into the next room and discover a new one. Not knowing what you were going to see around the next corner added an extra layer to the 2017 ONE Show experience.
