Bespoke Italian Bicycles

Scatto Italiano Crafts Custom Bicycle Designs with Fine Materials

— September 23, 2014 — Eco
The custom bicycle designs by Scatto Italiano provide the perfect blend of function, fashion and good for the environment. The bicycle frames are handmade in Milan, using only the finest materials like walnut wood for the handlebars. Over time, like a fine leather, these handlebars will develop a distinct patina with use.

But beyond just being able to pick the finishes on a bespoke bike, the frames can be completely customized so that the measurements are tailored just to you. As you might expect, the cost for a completely custom cycle is a little on the steep side, however you really can't compare the craftsmanship to a storebought bike. Even if you just want to dream about what your dream bike might look like, you can try it out first online before laying down some serious cash.
