Franco Augello’s craft of building motorcycles

Franco Augello has a very special approach when it comes to working with motorcycles. All his bikes are unbelievably distinct from anything seen before, with many parts and elements built from scratch or with old components redesigned and finely rebuilt.

For Franco, bikes are much more than just vehicles. He says, that every custom build rolled out of his garage is personalized and taken care of with great dedication and love. The bike in the pictures is a perfect example of this.

Solely fuel tank is an instance of greatness and exclusive vision of Franco Augello, but when it is combined with other hand-made parts (some of them are very unusual looking pieces) and powered by mighty BMW Boxer Twin we get a truly one-off bike with its own soul and excellent design.

Franko sees himself as a “two-wheel tailor” who takes rags and turns them into beautiful evening dresses.
