Go Takamine is shaping the customising world like no other. In 1998, he founded his BratStyle customising shop in Tokyo and in so doing created not only a brand but characterised his very own look. The Brat Style meanwhile ranks up there along with other prominent bike categories such as Cafe Racer, Chopper or Tracker. Brat Style means vintage design paired with visual lightness. Less polished and more stylish and striking – bikes for the soul. Its style inspires countless amateur and professional tinkerers all over the world and afforded the Japanese-born motorcycle enthusiast a great deal of respect on the scene. In 2014, Go opened another shop in Long Beach, California. In so doing, he definitively cemented his international standing.
