BROOKLYN INVITATIONAL 2017 | PHOTOS RAHOUL GHOSE

The brainchild of Keino Sasaki, John Copeland, and Jessica Lee Wertz, and sponsored this year by Indian Motorcycles, the 9th Annual Brooklyn Invitational hit Williamsburg's Root Studios Sept. 9 with a stunning collection of close to 30 motorcycles from around the world. Included in the mix were three custom 2018 Indian Scouts, courtesy of Keino, himself, Satya Kraus (Kraus Motor Co.), and skateboarding icon Steve Caballero (in conjunction with Roland Sands Design).

Other designers represented included: Andrew Fairbank, Christian Sosa, CT Newman, Dave Freston, Dick Miles Collection, Jack and Zack Hindes, Jamie Waters Collection, Jim Garrison, J Shia, Martin Carlgren, Matt Davis, Nicke Svensson, Paul Cox, Rich Phillips, Stuart Parr Collection and Toshiyuki Cheetah Osawa. The event, held in a 16,000 square foot photo studio, presented these iconic motorcycles from diverse genres -- "the best bikes from the best builders" -- in a setting akin to a gallery, accompanied by a musical program and local vendor booths.
