WHAT IS KICKBACK?
KICKBACK is an expression of nonconformity - and in a world saturated with second-rate copies - a display of rebellion and individuality rocks.
It's an independent, grass-roots motorcycle event, mostly but not exclusively, dedicated to DIY shed / home builds.
KICKBACK was built with autonomy, grit and determination from the bottom up - like the bikes we celebrate.
It's the sting-in-the-tail industry platform for builders and craftsmen with wild imaginations and dirty fingernails. It's a celebration of engineering and design excellence which embraces the modern custom scene - and the new wave of thrill-seekers - and those with a true love for old motorbikes and customs.
KICKBACK is the definitive showcase for rare classics and customised gems built in sheds, garages and workshops by young engineers as well as experienced professionals. It is a cool and subversive event that champions the offbeat and loves bringing like-minded people together to discuss anything from frame modifications and flat trackers to café racers and clip-ons...
With a considered select edit of trade stalls and a breath-taking - mostly private - collection of motorcycles on display this is a show you don't want to miss!
And don't forget the free bumper cars and ferris wheel rides! And fire eaters and stage shows...
Lorne Cheetham, KICKBACK organiser and Roger Green, founder and owner of Nite watches, have been good friends since the mid-1970s. They both share a lifelong love for motorcycling and still, to this day, venture out on two wheels together at every opportunity.
Like KICKBACK, Nite watches is an independently owned Company with its founder at the very heart of the business. Design excellence and a high level of creativity are required for making watches the same as they are for building custom motorcycles. This synergy led to Nite watches becoming headline sponsor for KICKBACK MANCHESTER event in 2023.
KICKBACK is now a key element of the brand’s focus on the motorcycle community.
