You never know what can originate from an idea. Allot of us do have them and allot of us don't follow through on them. The One Moto Show has countless stories of people that had ideas but failed to implement. But there are some of those that dare to dream, and without daring that may mean taking bold steps but the bottom line you don't make the shots you never take.
Fast forward 1 year and 1 warehouse along with builders with a dream that ultimately turned into something believable. Nine years and still doing it! Our first glance of the One Moto Show began in 2015 at Show No 5 during the infamous Snowmagedon.
I'll admit I had an idea that the show would be housed in some warehouse similar to what I witnessed in 2015. This time my arrival in Portland I did see allot of change. Allot of new buildings, and allot of young and homeless. It took a while to find the Pickle Factory but when we got there I was ecstatic to see families and our elders. Elders carry allot of wisdom and allot that we can all can learn from. Needless to say it was a great look. The Pickle Factory has allot of history. In the 1920s formerly a home to the Columbia Tire Corporation. From 1950 to 1978 it housed Rich Manufacturing Company a pipe and fitting facility. In the 80s Moore Vanrich Casting Corporation, and up to the 90s as a home to CARCO operating as a steel/iron casting facility and up to recently the former home of The Steinfeld's Sauerkraut in the late 90s as The Pickle Factory. Enjoy the pictures below and see you at The One Moto Show No. 10.
