9th October, 2016, Japanese customizer Suicide Customs scored a convincing first place in the 12th AMD World Championship at 'INTERMOT Customized' at Cologne, Germany, October 10th to take the coveted title of AMD World Champion of Custom Bike Building.

Voted for by the competitors themselves, this is the third time that a customiser from Japan has taken the Championship ring home, and in a close field of Freestyle class entrants, Suicide Customs was the clear choice of his fellow competitors as their Champion for the next two years.
