Exotic Machines and Custom Creations to Roar into Raleigh for Eurobike 2017

Jan 02, 2017 View Comments by

Eurobike Raleigh 2017On April 8 and 9, 2017, Raleigh, NC, will once again host a gathering of European and café racer-styled motorcycles. Eurobike 2017 is one of the region’s first motorcycle events of the year, a family-friendly affair dedicated to European design and machines. It returns again to Raleigh’s Historic City Market.

The two-day event offers a local Saturday ride, gathering, and bike show, with raffle prizes and bike show awards in several attendee-judged categories. There will also be a raffle for a 1996 Ducati 900 SS CR. The bike has only 6,300 miles and will complete with a cosmetic and mechanical refresh. Music, vendor booths, tech talks, and food will round out the event, with a special show section for custom motorcycle builders.

The raffle is being run from the Eurobike site. Tickets are $20. Participants do not need to be present to win. The drawing will be at the event though, and the winner will need to pick the bike up soon thereafter.
