The handiwork of custom bike builders will be on full display this weekend in Queens.

The Bike Cult Show will be at the Knockdown Center, a former glass factory in Maspeth from Friday to Sunday.

The show, which looks at both the history and future of custom-made bikes, will display hand-built works from more than 20 builders from across the country.

Organizers say the show is a way of highlighting just how much craft goes into making the perfect ride.

"I do feel like each person has a specific need or a specific purpose for their bike, and those can be tailored into the bike," said Coast Cycles Owner Johnny Coast.

"New York City's full of all these really great frame builders and we can put a great show on in their backyard and really represent what they do and show it off to the public," said Bike Cult Show Organizer Harry Schwartzman.

The show has expanded from last year to fill the 50-thousand foot factory space.

Tickets are 10 dollars a day for adults and free for children under 12.
