The AMD Championships highlight a plethora of interesting builds from clean customs to bikes that almost go into the realm of sculpture compared to ridability. After seeing a few images of this bike from Iaconia Custom Cycle it goes beyond being an amazing one off custom, it enters the realm of a master technician with a complete eye on the design prize. Every line and angle is accounted for while also looking to be a great handling ride. Damn good looking bike for sure.
