Feel like your old Japanese cruiser needs another personality? If you're truly ready for a dramatic change, then maybe you're one of the few lucky guys on the yearly list of Destino Custom Garage, in Australia. And if you thought that "few" was just a figure of speech... you should reconsider. Only 4 lucky owners get to ride Destino bikes each year. And yes, invite-only.

With more than 9 months of hard work behind, the Destino Samurai now proudly displays the tsuba (handguard for the legendary swords) on its tank. Built with a 1100cc heart, the rake has been increased for better stability and a meaner look.

The lowered handlebars and underbar single mirror complement the rubber for protectors and the lack of a front fender for a classic, retro racing look. If you fear that the riding position will not be suitable for you, rest assured Destino's JimmyB and Nik are always making adjustments according to personal preferences, so that the bike will be a perfect match for its owner.

The only thing which remains to be cleared out is whether you can make it among the 4 guys getting a Destino Samurai each year...
