Description

Synopsis

Many books have been published about Italian motorcycles, but none has focused exclusively on the Italian motorcycle-based chopper, bobber, trike, and quad custom bike scene – until now.
Even though customising is not normally associated with Italian brands, there are some fantastic individually-built Italian custom bikes out there, old and new. In recognition of the trend Ducati entered into a new market segment when it launched its power cruiser Diavel in November 2010, while Moto Guzzi has its Aquila Nero range ... these and many other custom-style bikes have been well-received in the customs scene.
This book looks at some of the fascinating custom projects out there, accompanied by stunning photography of the finished bikes. A great book for Italian bike fans, and fans of the custom bike scene in general.
Independent Reviews

The photos speak for themselves.
Motalia

It's so refreshing to the first book regarding Italian motorcycles for many years that's not just a restorer's rivet-counting dream guide to putting your bike put back 'better' than when it came out of the factory ... or otherwise a tawdry marque history that can't already be read elsewhere ... Like what every good coffee table book should be like, Cloesen's book is text light and picture heavy, but what text there is, descriptions of the bikes, who built them and so on, is accurate, succinct, well-researched and well-edited. The layout is clean, and the squareish format means that the photos, sourced from a mixture of professional and amateur/owner shots, is really to the fore ... If like us, you're fascinated by Italian motorcycles in all shapes, form and function, this is definitely a book to own.
Italian Motor

Like all the others in the series it is well written, well laid out and well -illustrated and well worth having on the bookshelf to remind yourself that the greatest thing about motorcycling is the diversity that exists within, something that clearly the author and publisher recognise. A great book for Italian bike fans and fans of the custom bike scene in general and a useful addition to series that continues to grow with more to come from the author and publisher.

Italian Custom Motorcycles is focused more on the street/stunt/café part of the custom scene, but you'll find it all in here. This is 'Part 3' of what is now the four-part 'Custom' series by author Uli Cloesen and Veloce Publishing. Only Veloce has the guts to bring us something as off-beat as this series, so big props to them for having the guts to do it.
There are some beautiful photos in here and if this book doesn't perk up your interest and expand your horizons on what a custom or chopper can be, then it's time to give up the hobby.
