The Bike is Called "The Baroness" (in Sicilian Dialect Barunissa) and is inspired by the "The Baroness of Carini" a Sicilian woman called Laura who, in 1860, married Baron Carini. The New Baroness becomes the object of reincarnation of an earlier Baroness also named Laura who was killed by her own father 300 years earlier, after she was caught having a love affair.... This is North Coast Custom's interpretation of a Motorcycle love affair reincarnation into today's world.
