Verona, Italy is famous for being the setting of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” with a lot of tourists visiting a 14th-century residence with a tiny balcony overlooking a courtyard said to be “Juliet’s House.” But each January Verona is the epicenter of the custom culture thanks to the Motor Bike Expo attracting 160,000 visitors eager to admire the new creations of the best Bike Builders from all over Europe.
This year’s edition (January 20-21-22) featured about 500 customs bikes on the floor with 68 of them participating to the Custom Chrome Bike Show, part of the Motor Bike Expo, and whose results qualify builders for the Italian Championship Of Custom Bike Building. Below, a gallery of the main winners (some could not be photographed in studio during the show) Photos @ H. Roesler for C. Huze.
