New member, my name is Mario.
I've not long moved back to the Uk after a 10 year spell of living in Italy where i had my own custom bike workshop.
Here are some pics of just some of the bikes i customised and built including all paint work.
Would love to get some feed back, good or bad, don't mind as i am well aware that customising is a very personal taste.
Look forward to getting some replies as i would love to start up back here in the UK but not too sure of how the market is.

I know i'm a Grumpy Old Woman but......

I always think it's nice for a newbie to get acquainted a bit before posting adverts disguised as posts in 3 different places!

Hi Biker Gran, let me introduce myself then.
My name is Mario and i'm 40 years old. I live in Holbeach, licolnshire and have a passion for custom motorbikes.
I'm not actually advertising here as i do not have a business to advertise but looking to see if what i produce actually has an interest for people in the UK as I've only ever done this line of work abroad.
Yes i would love to do it here in the UK but have no Idea how to get started!
That is why I've posted a few pictures to get some feedback.
Thank you for yours.

Maz at the moment money is being spent slowly and wisely but it's getting better another year it will be another year better . Build one and get it to a few shows and get a feel of what happens ?

Hi Scooby, i've got one on the go at the moment that should be ready by the end of the summer if all goes to plan, then yes deffo get it to some events.
Its hard as the bike industry has really suffered in this last recession. I've seen so many bike dealers closing, but fingers crossed things do seem to be on the up!!!!
Thanks for your kind words........

Hi Mario,

Nice work. Custom building is an international language and those bikes translate very well.

But you moved from Italy to Lincolnshire? Are you mad?!!

Hey, Blue.... Yeah moved from Italy, but i'm originally from the UK. Just in 2003 the wife said she had had enough and wanted to move abroad, so i packed everything up and we moved. Then in 2010 guess what? The wife said she wanted to come home and like a fool i packed up again and here i am lol.
Thats my story. I am now looking to get back to my custom bike building but have no idea where to start here in the UK.......But i will find a way.

Hey MadMart, have to say that i to am a fan of the red Sportster 1200, i think the red and the chrome really set it off, as well as the shape.
thanks for all your comments, its reassuring that my taste in customizing is also liked back here in the UK.
Time to find some old wreck and see what i can do with it!!!

Thats a 2005 Sportster with a Custome chrome rigid frame and springer front end. standard 883 engine with shovel head replica rocker covers also from Custom chrome. Fairly cheap to build really.
