Italian custom singlespeed inspired by a country music classic. Probably

When we were at the Milan show recently I happened to catch part of a TV programme on the Italian country music scene… and it suddenly hit me where Paduano had gotten their inspirations from for the Paduano SS custom, specifically the classic Johnny Cash number One Piece at a Time. Though I'd guess this baby would cost you more than a dime.

Beauty is a subjective thing and Paduano do make some very beautiful bikes, but it would be stretching things to say that this is one of them. More we reckon it's a show special to show what they could do when it comes to melding modern and retro together in a titanium tubeset. I'm pretty sure we've seen it before too which may be why they were hiding it away at the back of their stand where only the more discerning bike fan would find it. Maybe

Anyway enjoy the vid and here's some bonus Johnny Cash too. Yeeha!
