At the 2018 Bike Shed show in London 239 amazing custom motorcycles from around the UK and Europe were presented. Many projects are interesting, but now we want to stop our attention on the bike by Scotland's X-Axis workshop, run by the former British MXGP champion, Billy MacKenzie. After 20 years of racing, Billy decided to leave racing to focus on building custom bikes. Since then he’s built an impressive number of custom motorcycles, working with friends and partners Keith and Guy Amor.
