Benefiting The Angeles Crest Rebuilding Effort
Join us for Cafe Desmo, our annual Italian motorcycle bike show, which will be held this August 20-22 with a weekend full of events. This year’s Cafe Desmo will be the biggest and best we’ve ever hosted with a Friday evening cocktail party, a Saturday night concert and a Sunday morning bike show followed by a ride up the beloved Angeles Crest for a late picnic and an outdoor concert. Read on to learn all we’ve got planned.

Friday, August 20, 7PM: Cocktail Party
Cafe Desmo Cocktail Party at Pro Italia. The weekend opens up with a cocktail party here at the shop.

Saturday, August 21, 8PM: Concert
Concert at Labries Lounge featuring some terrific rock n’ roll by The Lords of Altamont. $10 at the door. Here is a map.

Sunday, August 22: Bike Show. Ride up the Crest. Picnic. Concert.
Our annual All Italian Bike Show. Be it restored, dripping with carbon, home-made frankenbike, rare, patinaed with age, customed or bone stock – it makes no difference, bring it. Our shows feature a wide, wide range of Italian bikes. It is fun to look at cool bikes, so sign up yours and share it with us. Those showing should arrive at Pro Italia between 8-9:30AM on Sunday 22. Awards, great trophies by way our good friends OMOTO, will be given out at Noon.

We’re expecting a “warm” August day, so after the awards we’ll be riding up the Angeles Crest to cooler climes for a lunch and concert fund-raiser with all proceeds helping to rebuild the Crest from last years fires. The concert is FREE and will feature the rockin’ stylings of Eric Buell, Rikki Rocket, Brian Nutter and Mike Stone. We’re also working to have some surprise guests at the concert as well. For $40 you’ll get special seating/parking at Newcombs Ranch, a picnic lunch and a one-off Café Desmo t-shirt. But most importantly, the 40 bucks will go to helping Newcombs and rebuilding the Crest.

8-9:30AM: Final Bike Show Sign-up
10-Noon: Bike Show, Judging and Awards
12:15PM: Ride the Crest up to Newcomb’s Ranch
2PM: Lunch and Concert featuring Eric Buell, Rikki Rocket, Brian Nutter and Mike Stone and more.
