South Garage BMW R75/5

Our Friday custom motorbike crush comes from Italy´s South Garage. The spectacular build is based on a BMW R75/5 from 1979, and it was given the name "Nerboruta”, an Italian term used to describe something brawny, muscular and sinewy, which perfectly reflects the bike’s presence. After stripping the beauty to its barest essentials, the Milan-based crew went to work on handcrafting the parts and pieces to give Nerboruta a stance that earns its name. Wood grain accents are becoming a more prevalent theme in the custom world and South Garage is quickly becoming a master of the art. That seat alone would garner some exclusive wall space at most art galleries. Check out the amazing photos below
