And if you’re looking to upgrade your bike, why not make it a custom one.
Through a dedication to mastering their craft and providing a machine that bar none is at the top of the pack, the boys at Sol Invictus have quickly become one of Sydney’s, if not Australia’s premier custom motorbike builders.
