Honda Motor Europe continues its tradition of hosting an annual custom motorcycle contest at Wheels and Waves in Biarritz, France, and this year's theme is all about the Honda minimoto lineup. From June 21 to 25, attendees can feast their eyes on seven unique custom builds, including a pair of ST125 Daxes, a pair of MSX125 Groms, and a trio of Monkeys. But even if you can't be there in person, you can still participate by voting for your favorite online through the provided link.


For 2023, Honda partnered custom bike builders with visual artists from seven different European countries who primarily work in other media. Each pair collaborated to bring their artistic visions to life on the diminutive canvases of the minimotos.

One standout creation is "Hold On!" by artist Matt B and builder Guy Willison from the UK. This Grom showcases turbocharging, nitrous, and aggressive styling, paying homage to the '90s and early 2000s tuner culture.


From Spain, Coco Dávez and builder UFO Garage present "Driving Me Mad," a Dax model adorned with bold primary colors. Inspired by a childhood game, this composition radiates joy and nostalgia.

Austrian artist Boicut and customizer Titan Motorcycles deliver "Monkey x Business," a '70s chopper-inspired Monkey with a banana-yellow saddle and vibrant paint job, featuring a chrome fishtail pipe for that classic touch.


Portugal's Tamara Alves and Art on Wheels Garage present "Furiosa," a post-apocalyptic-themed Dax that stands out among the bright and colorful minimotos of the competition.

French artist Grems and custom builder George Woodman bring "Tokyo," a Monkey bursting with bold anime-inspired colors and shapes that give it a unique animated appearance.


Italian artist Francesco Marchesani and Alex Polita collaborate on "Let's Grom," a Grom model influenced by Marchesani's graffiti artistry and Polita's racing background, resulting in a compact and attitude-filled design.

German artist Lana and builder Maximilian Zech present "Manjushage," a café racer-style Monkey featuring performance upgrades like a Yoshimura slip-on exhaust and meticulous spider lily motifs, showcasing attention to detail.


To vote for your favorite custom build, simply visit the Honda Customs website and explore the bike photos, detailed information about each project, and links to the creators' social media accounts. Voting remains open through Thursday, August 31, 2023, allowing ample time to make your selection. Don't miss the opportunity to appreciate the artistry and craftsmanship that went into these stunning Honda minimoto creations.
