Everywhere in the world, they build motorcycle differently. Two builders can be on either sides of the same block and, while pulling from similar resources and inspiration, turn out two completely different builds. This is made incredibly clear when hopping across the pond to the Motor Bike Expo in Verona, Italy.

Packed to the absolute gills with amazing custom bikes, Motor Bike Expo is one of the best and most diverse motorcycle shows in the world. It is only fitting that one of the tightest and best custom bikes at the show was their own. Meet the OJ1300.

Built as the result of a long and fruitful relationship between MBE and Yamaha Motor Co, the OJ1300 captures classic style with brutal modern functionality. It blends cafe racer style with modern super bike performance. Basically it looks amazing, and like you could pull some mean lap times on the track.
