Great times had - Battistinis customise London!

Forget the weather forecast, fire up the bikes and hit the road!
This is what it’s all about!

Many thanks to everyone that came along and met up on le route. Also thanks to everyone that made it down the Ace Café for a blinder of an afternoon and evening!

Sorry to the London folk that we left with neck ache from the constant head turning that you all had to do and also for bringing the streets and sidewalks of the capital to a grinding halt at times!

Further photos and write up to follow, after we go clean our bikes with the finest cycle care product range available, S100 of course!

Bring on the summer!

Up in the attic . . . . . . . .

Up in the attic . . . . . . .

Spring has brought out more than the brush and dustpan in the Battistinis Showroom. From the magical folders that live unopened at the back of the filling cabinets to the dust covered cardboard boxes up in the roof space that last saw the light of day a few years back have all been pulled out. Oh boy what beauties we have unearthed. From a mountain of photos to dig through and have a right old laugh at.

Scanning duties are now in place and are starting to get the sweat bead on many a persons brow as which of the beauties are to be used in upcoming promotions still remains the question!

Now with the digital age more paramount than ever before help us to add to our image collection. If you’ve got some shots of you out their riding please feel free to send them through to us as we would love to see them all!

Battistinis Custom Cycles, based in Bournemouth, England are ecstatic to announce that they have been selected and are now established as a key supplier to the National Space Program for the latest Mission, Prestige that is due to blast off in 2018.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration Organization, tasked with implementing the National Space Policy established on previous missions that the broadening vision of space activities shall contribute a major significance to the future of all Space exploration.

In an attempt to reduce overall mission costs and maximize on each mission, Space exploration must be aimed at extending the human presence throughout the solar system. The development of the new Battistinis two person motorcycle styled Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) was an urgent requirement to the mission program.

NASA required to land the two person human crews anywhere on the Moon's surface and allow the CEV to transport the pair to any given location. One of NASA's reasons for going back to the Moon is to demonstrate that astronauts can essentially "live off the land". The utilization of this new Crew Exploration Vehicle, equipped with the complete Battistinis Product Range will allow this must needed solution and ensure that it is undertaken in utter style. The CEV that has been created is to be unveiled at the Las Vegas 2008 S.P.A.C.E Exhibition.

A L.O.O.F agency spokesperson stated that "This is a huge and very ambitious space program, Battistinis have been selected to equip the CEV with its complete line up of parts as the vehicle that has been developed is based on the American V-Twin and without doubt the Battistinis range is at the cutting edge of the motorcycle industry.

Mark Battistinis stated, “When initially contacted by the agency we could not believe the challenge that was being asked and have been working intensely and in partnership with all involved. Now having stepped up to the agency’s envisions we are poised to turn a new chapter in the custom bike industry with the departure of what one would expect is achievable. The projection of the challenge is immense yet the sole objective here maintains for the truth not to get In the way of a good old story.”
