Bikesrepublic Video Series Ep 1 – Custom Harley-Davidson & Ducati Part 1

We explore the world of custom culture in the first episode of the video series!

Hello folks! Yes, we’ve heard your cries for more videos, and we’ve recently teamed up with a few partners in getting the video series produced.

In this first episode, the team have decided to explore the world of custom culture, and what better way to start on this with our friends from Beautiful Machines.

If you didn’t know already, Beautiful Machines have been around for a while now and have recently moved to its new home in the Sunway district. You can find out more about the cracked local builder in our previous feature by clicking here.

Back to our feature video and in this first part, we delve deeper into the wild, eclectic and sometimes borderline illegal world of building bespoke bikes. We had a chat with Beautiful Machine’s head honcho Guan to find out more about this movement that has rapidly grown here in Malaysia.

Also featured is a special bike that the Beautiful Machines were building at the time of filming called ‘Monster’. Watch the video and see what our chief editor Keshy Dhillon and junior editor Thoriq Azmi discover with Beautiful Machines.

And just so you know, we also got to ride a few of Beautiful Machine’s other creations just to grab a feel of the custom life – that will be the centre of focus in Part 2.

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the pilot episode of the video series. Let us know your thoughts and comments in the comment boxes at our official YouTube and Facebook pages as well.
