Indonesia has proved quite the powerhouse of late when it comes to custom bikes. With builders that are easily the best in the region and a beautifully original take on things, it's a country that attracts the interest of the region's bike fans over and above many of its contemporaries - Australia included. And the Indonesian crème de la crème would have to be Bandung's White Collar Bikes. Their main man, Ram Ram Januar, has the metalworking skills of sword maker.
