Custom Bike Show War In Italy

padova1padova2This weekend in Italy, 2 big Bike Shows are competing to attract the best european custom bikes and the largest crowds. One show is the Padova Bike Expo and the other is the Verona bike Expo. Padova and Verona being only 50 miles apart, spectators can enjoy both!

padova3Correspondent Horst Roesler is there and send the pictures of the 2 big winners of the Verona Show who will represent their respective countries this Summer in Sturgis for the 2010 AMD World Championship of bike building. Top picture is a custom bike built by Italian Builder “Garage 65” with an impressive hub steered high tech monster powered by a TP engine and running on slick tires! Bottom picture is the bike built by Yun Shif from Moscow, Russia for one of his clients. A custom Ducati Streetfighter. I can tell you, having seen other pictures of these 2 shows, the Europeean custom scene has never been so well & alive. I will be at the Verona Bike Expo next year. US representants at the Verona show are  the Ness family, Russell Mitchell, Cole Foster, Roland Sands, Jeff Decker (photograhy HRF).

    It’s evident that since 2/3 years the originality and quality of custom bikes made in Europe is far better than in the US. Watch the Russians…

    Nice looking. Like to see Him ride it for a 100 Miles! The 2nd bike looks like a Ols 70’s Ducati with White Powder Coating!

    and if he did ride it for a hundred miles, Im sure you would have something else to say about it at that point, correct?

    Those 2 bikes are extremely cool looking. American builders, wake up!

    Mind set. Just like Harley building the same thing over and over IT GETS OLD !
    Two examples of creativity , functional or not. I like the bikes for they are looking forward [ no pun intended ] in newer/ different design.

    Like special when bike builders explore new territore.

    I love both of those bikes. The white one is something I would ride everyday!

    Those are 2 kick-ass builds. The stuff coming out of Europe has truly been remarkable and pushes the envelope of style and design. IMO of course.

    Can’t wait to see the bikes in Sturgis…great creativity and white bike could be rideable

    thank’s all

    These two bikes are nice, but there is definitely steep competition waiting for them in the U.S. The innovative builder behind Wikked Steel who designed and built the “Area 51” bike that won in Daytona last month at the Boardwalk show needs no waking up. Area 51 beats both these bikes for design, one of a kind parts, overall appearance, and it is RIDEABLE. Even for 100 miles! Check out
