- Triumph mega scrambler
The triumph mega scrambler brought a wave and a new custom wave to the scene by letting engineers loose on the secret of in-house build-off, without an idea of the outcome. The two team of volunteers got the basic triumph Bonneville and got the instruction to do what they pleased, with a limited budget on the mind, and maximum time. The management of these initiatives was done by the PR stunts and possessed the sell after-market products or tease new models. However, the engineers of this motorcycle did not have a lot of management interference and were left with their devices.
They did not develop the board-approved prequel for the future model but broke all rules by creating two inspired bikes that possessed stunning engineering components. These bikes ended up schooling many pro-builders on building custom bikes. Although the winner possessed reversed heads, it had a soft spot for the insanely lanky scrambler that has top level chassis parts, motocross proportions, and a super-light one-off frame.

Nick, an American Ex-Pat in Europe put together this shed built bike after relocating from Detroit to Cologne. Ducatis tick many boxes in the in the custom new-wave scene because they have been building capable bikes that are futuristically fast to last for over one decade.

The Ducati 900ss possesses a flat tracker/ hybrid café look and a weight of around one hundred and fifty-two kilograms. It has several seat configurations that include the race-inspired number-board.
- Zadig MC – one punch
Finished raw metal and the engines of the Hailey Davidson are the custom bike cliché type that people try avoiding at the shed.

The name of the builders’ dog was also inherited through tragic circumstances that cannot be discussed in this section.
The 2007 HD looks like it is fifty years old due to the open metal work and rusty tank.
