Ugo Torri is an entrepreneur and a gentlemen rider with a passion for speed and for bikes... beautiful bikes. After achieving his technical secondary school diploma, he had to leave university early on the death of his father to devote himself to the family firm, engaged in plastic moulding. In 2003, recognising the potential of a business that would lead him to build, manage and represent a leading company in what had been a growing industry in the years 2000 to 2013 - gold - he took a diploma as IGI Graduate Gemologist in Antwerp. In 2010 he met Roberto Crepaldi and became one of the lucky owners of Duu, with a model that is an icon among the first ``on demand`` Luxury Creations, luxurization.com. In 2015 he launched a network of stores dedicated to niche perfumery and lifestyle. Motorcycles, speed and exclusivity: Ugo and RMC have much in common.
Roberto Crepaldi has a great and distinguished experience in the world of two and four wheeled ``Premium`` machines. He took his first steps with Ferrari in the early 1970s, and then went on to further success with several other brands. The revival of Harley-Davidson in Italy also bears his signature, a commercial operation and outstanding marketing that he has repeated with Triumph, Husqvarna and, for cars with Jaguar and Aston Martin. In 1993 he founded and managed the CR&S Britten Team which was running the revolutionary Britten V 1000. He has participated in three editions of the Touristy Trophy on the Isle of Man and won the BEARS World Series, a championship reserved for open class prototypes with two and three cylinders. In 2002 Roberto became a motorcycle manufacturer and gave birth to two very unique motorcycles: the CR&S Vun in 2005 and CR&S DUU in 2009. Record Motor Cycles, RMC, is Roberto's new great challenge in the world of two wheels.

Among his various career participations, one, in particular, should be mentioned, though perhaps only marginal in the context of his rich pedigree, but prophetic considering today's project: in 1995 he raced in Monza with Roberto Crepaldi's CR&S Britten in the second round of the World BEARS Series, finishing second and thus contributing to the overall CR&S Britten Team title victory.

Lorenzo Dossena, air-brush artist, paint and lacquer specialist dedicated to the motorsport sector, was born in Monza in 1970. In 1990 he began his professional career by decorating helmets for individuals and professional pilots using the nearby international Racing Circuit. The transition from the decoration of helmets to competition motorbike fairings was almost immediate and he has been developing and following this sector for many years now. Later, his passion led him towards the world of Harley and custom bikes in general, where he has decorated several competition machines both in Italy and abroad. In 2006, in his historic headquarters in Monza, Lorenzo opened a department dedicated to the construction/decoration of American custom cars. Among other things, he devoted himself, to the creation of the first Italian custom auto exported to America, which made its debut in 2015 in Los Angeles, winning numerous prestigious awards and bringing Lorenzo into the Sacramento Autorama Hall of Fame. Always engaged in particularly fascinating projects, both in Italy and abroad, Lorenzo is an integral resource for all the stylistic and decorative aspects of our endeavour.
