Roma Custom Bike is the first web-series about custom motorcycles made in Italy and distributed world wide both in Italian and English. The show starts from Custom Cez's desire to document his bike's restoration process. It was supposed to be a simple docu-tutorial, shot with a single camera so that he could keep it as a memory of passionate and creative work.

help, along with a special guest, a fan of the show that offered his services for the show's noble cause, Sergio from the FB group Rat Bike Italia.

Part 1:

Part 2:

Part 3:


In this 3rd and final part we make the lifting mechanism for the bottom anvil.
We went to see my neighbor, Mr. Pietro, to use his lathe so we could make the piston and cylinder for the system.
Them we CNCed a pocket on the tube to fit a pin on the piston so it would travel straight up and down and finalized the build of the English wheel.

What did we do:

- worked the piston and cylinder on the lathe
- CNCed a pocket on the steel tube
- Welded the tube to the main structure
- finalized the build
- tested the english wheel with a piece of aluminum sheet
