After our photo contest for Best Custom of 2016, we’re up for a new Bikes of the Month. Like every month we’ve selected the best customs from around the web. This month we have a Ducati 750 from Down Under, a BMW K100 from the US, a Yamaha XSR700 from France, a Moto Guzzi V10 from the US and a radical Triumph Legend TT from Italy.

Triumph Legend TT by XTR Pepo
To be honest: I love every machine that is build by Pepo Rosell, so it’s obvious that I feature his work on a regular basis. But I’m not the only one; every single creation turns out to be gold.
