On June 25th & 26th 2016, Raleigh North Carolina will host the Southeast’s largest gathering of European and Euro-inspired motorcycles. The seventh -annual Raleigh Eurobike is a family-friendly event dedicated to the style and sophistication of European mechanical design and the history of the machines that inspire the imagination with a feeling of freedom and a hint of rebellion. This year’s event returns to where it all started, and will be hosted in Raleigh’s Historic City Market.
From across the Atlantic Ocean, images of British Rockers hitting “the ton,” rugged Alpine trekkers on knobby-tired adventurer bikes and 200MPH thrill seekers on the polished surfaces of Tuscany’s Mugello race circuit have evoked a sense of excitement and adventure that continues at Raleigh Eurobike. The one-day event brings together the best examples of European design excellence and offers something for anyone interested in motorcycles, the motorcycling lifestyle and “speed as art.”
Aprilia, BMW, BSA, Ducati, Moto Guzzi, MV Agusta, Norton and Triumph are just some of the marques that will be on display. Along with a European-only bike show, Raleigh Eurobike will also feature scooters and café racers from Europe, the U.S., Japan and elsewhere; classic styles inspired by the Mods and Rockers of 1960s England. Prizes will be awarded in several attendee-judged categories. There will also be a Chinese auction, DJ, vendor booths, tech talks, food and a swap meet.
Raleigh Eurobike is presented by Do the Ton Triangle, a local group of café racer enthusiasts dedicated to preserving the history, camaraderie and D.I.Y. philosophy of classic and retro-styled motorcycles and their lifestyle.
Proceeds from this years event will go to BikerDown.org. – a non-profit 501c organization establishedin 2011 by a group of riders, motorcycle dealers, and supporters to assist motorcycle accident victims who have been injured in an accident while riding responsibly. A new chapter will be based on the SE Virginia area.

On June 25th & 26th 2016, Eurobike celebrates its 7th consecutive year. Eurobike is an event that attracts hundreds of owners of British, European, café racer motorcycles and scooters. The event is free to the general public and attracts enthusiasts from the Mid-Atlantic region. This year’s event will be held in downtown Raleigh North Carolina at City Market. We are also moving the show to a Sunday schedule so as to provide more spectator parking, and less conflict with the normal business hours of many merchants. We are also planning activities for the Saturday night before the show.
Eurobike is growing quickly and we are expecting over 1000 attendees this year. While the show focuses on European marques and custom creations, Eurobike also attracts a diverse audience from the region, riding anything on two wheels from custom cruisers to Japanese and vintage motorcycles.
Eurobike is seeking sponsors for contributions to the event in the form of cash or equivalent wholesale merchandise. Sponsorship levels are as follows:
