Officine Mermaid, Milan

Going back to Milan for the Showdown Show next Saturdays means I can take Ben and Skooter Farm Dave to a great shop I visited last time I was there, Officine Mermaid. It's a place with it's own feel, not trying to copy the (much-copied) Glory Sales and Service vibe.
Deus SR outside. Mermaid stock Deus clothing too.
There's a glass floor in the showroom with a bunch of chops, including an Indian Larry one, down below. A huge scissor lift in the floor drops bikes to the lower level.
Tasty Zero-style lowrider on the bench.
Milanese Harley riders are a little different. I can't put my finger on it. I know, he's gone for a Windsor knot rather than a four-in-hand.
