1. Street Steel Heavy Metal Bike Gallery, Macau, February 2018. I’m not really into motorbikes. In fact… let me revise that… I couldn’t care less.

The casino owner is a motorbike enthusiast who’s spent his life collecting the most impressive models in the world. Some of these vehicles are scattered around the various floors of the casino. This one is a custom made Jack Daniels Harley Davidson Chopper.

5. Street Steel Heavy Metal Bike Gallery, Macau, February 2018. This award-winning bike is a 2012 custom-made Chop Deville Deluxe Retro Racer. At the far end of the gallery you’ll find a discreet door leading to a studio where you can get your photo taken with a selection of models. If you’re even moderately interested in bikes this free exhibition is well worth half an hour of your time!
