The Hot Rod Custom Show in Yokohama, Japan, is one of the most incredible custom shows in the world, bringing the best and wildest customs from all over the world to Japan for a one-day show. One glorious day of exhibiting everything, but for many of the people there, that's a whole lot of work for just the one show day. So this year, Go Takamine of Bratstyle organized a flat-track race to coincide with the custom show, the Okie Dokie Race.

From choppers to minibikes and all sorts of bikes in between, everyone brought out their gorgeous motorcycles and threw them into the corners like they hadn’t put hundreds of hours into building and restoring them. It was incredible to see some of our favorite bikes from the show, and some of our favorite builders from the show, out there giving it their all. Something inherently mischievous and exciting about riding bikes in a manner so far from that which they were intended for.

Be sure to check out our gallery of our favorite bikes from the Mooneyes Yokohama show!
