Marchino and Tommy of Ferro Massiccio decided to set up a ride across the mountains some weeks ago...
A little pack of desperados riding in the woods...tents...fire...beers...booze
Mike took these amazing shots.
Cool ride. Nice weather. Nice people. Hope to make it again soon.

I 'm not into sportsbikes....but my pal Luca is!....and gave me his helmet to refresh.
It is a Premier carbon fiber full face helmet: I actually had to repaint it twice.
Carbon is pretty messy to be painted.
But I am satisfied with the result. I do love simple graphics. I think they never get out of style.
Luca owns a fantastic MV Agusta and is a very talented tattoo artist at Ink Addiction Tattoo in my hometown Verona: check him out!!!!

I usually take pics with the phone because I'm lazy....but this one reveals how cool the seat I re-shaped came out.

This is one of the projects I am currently working on. A Supermotor Company PIN 120cc.
It's a perfect replica of the glorious Honda Cub of the sixties.
Still have a lot of work to do: re-shape the rear session and the saddle, re-design the handlebar, call my "unknown" pal to re-do the wiring, and in the end, make an essential (but cool) custom paint.
Does't matter if it is a Harley, a Triumph or whatever else...to make, or try to make, a (very) good custom job takes an unbelievable amount of work... "but I like it, I like it, yes I do"

Mike's xl1200x Forty Eight:
...and Filippo's 883R with a set up for his trip to Spain
Instagram is a kind of a drug you know...and the blog has been on a dark corner...and took some dust too...and the computer I was working with, fucked up...so...many things (we) and I did on these past couple of months only took place on Instagram...
Here are these two sweet sportsters: I love them to the limit!
Some more things will be posted soon.
Five Speed's line up is going through some little rainy weather right now...but it will be sunny soon :-)

Did I tell you that I also do paintjobs on helmets?
Here is a Biltwell Gringo I had the chance to paint for Matteo...a lucky cat with a vintage racing MV Agusta 350.
All I have been asked to do was to lay down some old AGV graphic inspired to Giacomo Agostini's helmet.
Ride free Matteo!

It's always a challenge to put your efforts on a motorcycle...and we've always wished to grab a little japanese and pull the hell out of it.
We did it with this little Suzuky GN250.
There's a complete full custom job behind this funny machine.
Completely re-wired to let some little british-look switches take place on the handlebar.
Original seat totally modified.
Home-made exhaust system: louder than the fucking Motorhead!
Sportster headlamp and nacelle and Lucas taillight with japanese cat lens.
Black powder all along the front end...and a superfemale-oriented paint job on the tank!
