The Motor Bike Expo in Verona, Italy kicked off today in full force. Walking into one of the ten massive showrooms, it's impossible not to feel like a kid in a candy shop. Head on a swivel and camera firing like a tommy gun, we made our way through the masses of amazing bikes and gorgeous women presenting them.

One of the biggest challenges of the day, aside from not gawking at all the stunning italian women, was narrowing this gallery down to workable amount of images. It's hard to capture the quantity of custom bikes, and the amount of skilled work that went into each one. There are more high quality Sportster and Triumph builds here than I have ever seen, and the amount of performance parts integrated into most builds is insane. Inverted forks, proper sport bike levers and brake systems as well as other high performance aspects like custom triple trees and stabilizers seem to be the name of the game here. The European market wants custom performance driver cruisers, and they're getting them.
