South Garage – Kimera Sportster Cafe Racer
It’s been some time since I featured a custom build from Italy’s South Garage. That doesn’t mean that Enzo and the boys have been sitting around twiddling their thumbs though. Their website currently showcases over 30 original South Garage custom builds that are enough to make any motorcycle lover weak in the knees. Although European and British made motorcycles tend to be their preferred subject matter, South Garage have ventured into relatively new waters with their latest Harley Davidson based build.
One thing South Garage never fail to deliver on is a great looking paint scheme and Kimera is the perfect example. The combination they’ve selected uses a striking trio of brushed and clear coated alloy, Ox blood paint and gold pin striping that ties all of the other elements of the bike together beautifully.
Harley’s often cop a bit of flak in cafe racer circles and the comments these kind of builds get on my Return of the Cafe Racers social pages tend to follow suit. This time though I think Kimera could leave the neysayers lost for words.
