" 12. A good Designer is not the one who takes you from “what you have” to “what you want”, but the one who takes you from “what you want” to “what you didn’t even know you wanted”.
11. When you customize, don’t follow the crowd. Just follow your dreams.
A Custom Shop should be a dream factory.
10. Great mechanical skills can only take a motorcycle so far. Passion is the engine of creativity.
9. Designing & building a motorcycle is like composing & orchestrating a song. Everybody can use the same notes. But who is going to make a Hit?
8. A good bike appeals to your reason. A great bike appeals to your emotions. There are so many emotions you can assemble on a motorcycle.
7. Have nothing on your bike that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.
6. If you invest in beauty, it will be with you for the rest of your life.
5. Just because an accessory fits doesn’t mean it looks right.
4. Good ideas result from uninhibited experimentation.
3. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
2. Good design is guts, brains and soul.
1. Customizing. There are no rules!

Street Art Bobber Graffiti

Graffiti is the first form of Hip Hop. It pre-dates Rap and all the other forms!!! Graffiti is still the only art form where the life span of a work can be as brief as hours... Like it's often the case with other non-conventional art forms, some people have a negative point of view on graffiti based on limited or erroneous information. Same about custom motorcycles. Both activities are innovative and truly original art forms because they allow people to express ideas and share in each other's feelings via the artwork. They are created by artists doing their art for the sake of doing their art. And nobody can seriously challenge the historical relevance of any form of art, tagging walls or customizing bikes. This Graffiti Bobber was built to be reminiscent of the late 60s when aerosol culture was exploding in New-York City and when at the same time bikers began to turn their bikes into their own pieces of art. Graffiti is Cyril showing his respect to street art, on walls and on wheels. Read more on

Harley Nostalgia SEXEE

Take a genuine Harley Shovelhead. Strip it, cut it, grind it, and redesign it the way the factory should have done it in the first place. Throw away the ugly and unnecessary parts, then design, reshape, and weld a new body. Of course, keep the beautiful engine. But rebuild it, juice it up and give it the polishing and black lacquer beauty treatment it deserves. Now she is looking as sharp as she runs. Here an HD to which Cyril added awesome one-off custom parts, a lot of black anodizing, a touch of bloody red, and a paint job mixing 70's pinstriping with a dose of biker humor. With just a facelift and some heavy body liposuction an old star just got back its irresistible sex appeal.

“If the phenomenon of customization grows so rapidly, it’s because we live in a world with more and more rules for everything we do. It’s also because factory motorcycles look increasingly alike. So, riding being my passion, it’s logically the place in my life that allows me to throw away the rules and be free. Building a bike from the ground up, or customizing one coming off the assembly line is all about freedom. Freedom to dream, to express a personality, to experiment new solutions and to ride exactly what we want. I see the trend toward not only more motorcycles being customized, but toward better customization, and deeper personalization: bikes giving us more pleasure with more muscle, more style, more mileage, more comfort, etc. Whatever we expect and please us when we ride our motorcycles."
