Based out of Milan, the good folk over at South Garage pride themselves in their meticulously crafted custom motorcycles that boast both a handsome aesthetic and powerful power plants. Take this BMW R75/7 for example, in which South Garage transformed this ‘70s touring bike into a beautiful bobber.

It’s called the Nerboruta – an Italian word meaning muscular, burly, or rugged. The project began as a complete strip down to the bike’s essentials before the crew at South Garage began the daunting task of handcrafting the necessary pieces to support the build’s namesake. Part of their efforts included a hand-formed scalloped fuel tank in place of the original, wood grain accents were also added to up the flair and class of the bike (it is an Italian bike shop after all), which included the seat and rear fender as well. They also fitted a springer front end to significantly alter the overall appearance of the R75/5. The final product looks suited for both the Italian countryside and an art museum, serving to put South Garage’s intense attention to detail in such projects on display.
