Angry Lane Custom Bikes Chai Wan Workshop

[03/10/12] 

Angry Lane is a custom motorcycle shop in Chai Wan developed by the Barras brothers and another partner called James. The trio have always been passionate about bikes and set up the business on the side about a year ago. To begin with they only sold motorcycle parts but a few months back they started going the whole hog (pun intended) and delivering full builds. You’d have to be very unlucky to run into the Hell’s Angels in HK so it’s a good chance to join the leather brigade without losing a finger.

Although they love remodelling customers’ existing bikes, more often than not they source the bikes themselves before turning them into outrageous machines. Their overriding design principle is to remove as many useless parts as possible - and they're partial to a new tank. The engine remains the essence of the bike but they’re also big on custom made covers and have an eye for detail. If your missus isn’t taking you seriously enough this could be your way to reassert your dominance in the home. Or begin a mid-life crisis. Your call.

Being a bespoke service their prices vary wildly, but as a rough guide you can expect to spend from HK$50,000 on a 250cc number (they call that a small bike) up to HK$120,000 for 500cc. They also lean on their backgrounds in fashion/design to offer a range of personalised extras such as helmets and watches. Think of the ecstasy of riding a bike in Hong Kong. No traffic, no pedal-pumping taxi drivers and just enough room on the back for a special lady to hold on to your mojo.

To the south side.
