This 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!
Correspondent 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).
