Roman lebt und arbeitet in Sibirien und hat unter anderem diese atemberaubende Honda CB 550 Baujahr 1979 umgebaut. Da mich dieses Motorrad so extrem begeistert, und so viele Fragen noch nicht beantwortet sind, habe ich ein kleines Interview mit Roman geführt.

Roman: In Sibiria few custom shops and custombuilders,
but more and more people are doing it.Short summer, 6-7 month.
The long winter has to creativity.
GB: How is the feedback?
Roman: I do repairs and tuning motorcycles. Customizing generates income in the winter
GB: Is it difficult to customize motorbikes in Sibiria?
Roman: The main difficulty is the presence of customers for good projects.
But I build motorcycles for myself too, it just takes more time due to funding.
For projects that need money and time.
GB: Where do you get your parts?
Roman: I order parts from Japan, eBay. Much of the produce itself.
only need the engine and wheels, everything else I do myself.
GB: Tell me something about your new project?
Roman: I'm doing several projects at the same time.
One of the following - NSU (1936) bobber with Kawasaki engine
