The Japanese custom scene is hugely popular at the moment, producing some absolutely jaw-dropping Harleys. Our friends in the East are giving us a fresh perspective on custom bikes, and we can’t get enough. This 1968 Shovelhead, produced by Sato Marine Cycle (SMC) which is based in Onomichi, embodies this mystifying custom scene. SMC has been open for 30 years.

Yusaku Sato owns SMC and runs it with his wife and two other members of staff – a small but efficient team.
