Time seems to pass so fast here that we barely even get a quarter of what we set out to do each week by the time the weekend comes back around again to slap us in the face!

One sure thing that we never get a chance to do is sit in front of the little plastic box at the side of our desk pushing the ‘scan’ button to share what many of our good friends around the world like to write about us and the bikes that we build. With another little project up our sleeves the day has come to start the input and what better way to start than with some of our Exile features that are on the newsagents shelves across the globe as we speak.

A few months back now we completed our first Exile. The ‘Exile Bullfighter’ was our first step towards Exile and now there is no turning back. Now being Europe’s Premier Supplier of Exile Motorcycles’ we have to say that we really like these bikes!

From day one we have endeavoured to build and supply the best custom bikes and products within the industry and that is exactly the way we like to build our ‘Exiles’.

Keep your eyes peeled to the international press to see exactly what we are currently upto! Who said that we have to build all our Exile’s with two wheels may give you a trike, sorry idea what is also underway!

Battistinis at the world’s largest V-Twin Expo in Cincinnati U.S.A . . . . . . . .

We have just got back from the V-Twin Expo in Cincinnati U.S.A where our Brand NEW product range was exhibited at the world’s largest V-Twin Expo to the complete V-Twin trade in the States. The V-Twin expo is the largest show in the world solely for the V-Twin custom motorcycle industry and it shows. As you can expect at any top industry show, all the movers, shakers and shapers of the industry are out in force rubbing shoulders with one another. When you look at the list of exhibitors you begin to realise that this is the industry’s largest show for good reason!

The Battistini stand was a hub of excitement! With he new product range going down a storm, it is now available for the complete range of Harleys / Victory’s and of course customs and seems to be growing day by day. We have developed the range to bolt straight on, no cutting, no grinding and above all no raised blood pressures and shouting when trying to get it on the bike!

All of our parts are manufactured on the West Coast of U.S.A, with the complete range being available in chrome and also black anodise with highlight re-machining.

Over in Cincinnati we also met face to face with all of the owners of the brands that we import and distribute throughout Europe. And boy oh boy, all we have to say is that some of the products that we have coming over very soon are so hot they are unreal! The rules of what you have come to expect are all up in the air, and when the parts land with us we guarantee they will bring a smile to your faces!

We are all back to now thou, with a lighter wallets all round but more importantly a great time was had by all, especially having made a good attempt at drinking America dry of Corona, cocktails and whatever else we could fuel our bodies with. Many thanks to all the great friends that we made and we hopefully will see you all soon!

Battistinis support Shaw Harley Davidson . . . . . . . . . . . .

All of our good friends at Shaw Harley Davidson always put on a real cracker of a show every year in January and on the 13th Jan 2008 at the Eastbourne Winter Gardens it was no exception.

With more people through the doors than ever than before this really is an event that grows year on year. We were their on hand all day to show, help and advice what can be done to your Harley Davidson. We had a real head turner of a Fatboy on show that we have recently loaded with our own product! With a 250 rear end riding on air suspension, Custom Cycle Control bars and a truck load of our all new product range bolted on it really was a Fatboy to die for. Practical, stunning and unique is what this bike is all about!

Want to see the bike first. Well sorry as it debuted at the Shaw Winter Showcase. Our photo shoot images are going to the press as we speak for certain publications across the globe, so once they have them in print first we will then get them up onto this site!

We hope to see you all next year, as soon as we have a date we will let you know!

Bread and Butter in Barcelona . . . . . . . . . .

More than 99,500 international fashion professionals visited the 18th BREAD & BUTTER – tradeshow for selected brands in Barcelona, so you know that ythis is the one to be at!

KING SIZE was the theme of this year’s BREAD & BUTTER and an appropriate slogan for the event.

On the first day, immediately following the fair’s opening, exhibitors were thrilled by the exceptional attendance at their stands. The halls were full and trade visitors were enthused by the creativity of many brands. Companies such as Nike, Ed Hardy, Converse and Nudie Jeans felt right at home in the Fira de Barcelona and promoted their collections in individual presentations outside the fair’s halls.

Karl-Heinz Müller: “It was fabulous, better than ever before, almost everything was perfect! The weather was fantastic, ‘early spring’ in Barcelona, and the mood was excellent. It was our masterpiece, our greatest success to date. Our campaign was right on target. All of Barcelona and the international fashion world were attuned to KING SIZE.”

Battistinis have to add: “this may well be one of the best organised shows that we have ever visited. From the scale, quality and diversity it had it all, we will be back!”
