If you needed any more evidence that the American custom motorcycle industry is derivative, uninspired and, well, completely and utterly lame, here it is. Entrants in the AMD European Custom Motorcycle Championship include bikes that are original, imaginative and, wait for it, functional.
Take the CCCP Skoal Bandit for instance. Its aggressive and cartoonish supermoto stance instantly makes any raked-out chopper look limp-wristed. But still present is the ubiquitous air-cooled twin, making this a bike that will appeal to the traditional custom customer as well as new ones.
