Meet Ferdinand the Sparrow: a slammed sprint bike built by Young Guns Speed Shop. Speed is its main mission, but there is infinite appeal in its gut-punch aesthetic. The 1200cc engine, transplanted from a 2007 Moto Guzzi Norge, is perched in a ’76 Le Mans 1 frame. The frame and forks have been modified to help Ferdinand fly as low as possible—with the oil pan constantly flirting with a cracked pavement disaster.
One of the fastest-growing custom motorcycle workshops in Italy is Extemporae. (It's based in the Varese region that*s also home to MV Agusta and Husqvarna.) This is Extemporae*s latest, a sweet Suzuki DR650 custom that looks like a real blast to ride.
