The 25th Café Desmo will be held over the May 1-3 weekend starting with an evening party at 7:30pm on Friday, May 1, at Pro Italia’s store at 3319 N Verdugo Road and ending with a bike show and rock concert at Newcomb’s Ranch on Sunday, May 3rd, from 11am to 4pm.
Café Desmo started 25 years ago as a small anniversary party, and it has grown to be one of the largest Italian bike shows in Southern California. It’s given thousands of enthusiasts a chance to show off their beautiful Italian motorcycles, renew old acquaintances and make new friends. Café Desmo unites thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts with hundreds of incredible bikes, celebrities, music, and raffles... all along one of the most beautiful riding roads in California.
This year we are looking for some very special bikes to display... including winners of past Café Desmos. If you have a bike that you would like to see displayed at Café Desmo please email Karen Rickman (818-249-5707 ext 354) by April 23 with three or four good pictures of your bike, a brief description of the bike and information as to manufacturer, model, year, and customizations. Bikes to be displayed will be selected by readers and Pro Italia (see the Bikes for Display tab at the top of this page to cast your vote).
Proceeds from the sale of a concert package, which includes reserved parking at Newcomb’s Ranch and a Café Desmo t-shirt, will benefit the Montrose Search and Rescue Team. You may purchase this package at store.proitalia.com or by calling Pro Italia Motorcycles at 818.249.5707 extension 354 and asking for Apparel (aka Karen).
