Due to the fantastic success of the first nine issues of Built, issue 10 sees us go monthly! And to celebrate we’ve created a stonking issue for you. Inside this issue we go a bit Greek with a trip to Athens to check out the thriving and innovative custom bike scene there. We kick off our mythical adventure with a visit to The Real Intellectuals, the custom shop at the centre of Athens biking universe, follow the madness that is The Rotten Race and meet the founder of C-Racer, the innovative custom parts manufacturer that all the top builders use.
We visit Jigsaw Customs in the Greek Hills to discover why they are the proud winners of not one, but two of Yamaha’s Yard Built competitions and get a look at one of the most powerful custom bikes we’ve ever seen, the aptly named 186bhp Brain Eraser.
Elsewhere in our first monthly issue we get a ganders at Dan Ridge’s KTM Desert Sled and Death Machines of London show off Airforce 1, a lesson in aircraft-quality aluminium styling. We visit Mooneyes Show in Yokohama, Japan, and find out why it’s the best kustom culture show on the planet and drop in on Clique Customs in Truro, Cornwall, an inspired oasis of biker cool.
