 Custom Bikes



Imagine you are peering through your faceshield at 95mph reaching speed as you bend the wide curve on a cool, misty highway in Tuscaloosa. The road is long and winding with thick oak and brier tree patches, red dirt and green signs as you glide through small, quiet towns. The sun glimmers on your custom bike as it hits the bridge, ducks in the shadows, and reappears. The mist is opaque against your high-quality embossed black leather jacket that whips the wind with a crisp snap as you near an exit.

You have the right of way, pull into the entrance of a strip mall, and you make your way to a popular biker's bar, not just any biker bar, THE biker bar. You are greeted at the door with a hearty hello from the exuberant crowd, take a smokers seat near the rear window, light a cuban and order an Old Grandad.

To own a custom motorcycle takes a serious love to ride, good knowledge of the traffic rules in each county you travel, plus a great design eye for the visual and dynamics of the custom motorcycle.

Because the production of the custom motorcycle is a timely process and requires certain parts (foreign or parts that have to be shipped) the cost to build one ranges from either $15,000 to $50,000 with the average cost of about $30,000. Wow that's a lot of Grants , huh?

What is a custom motorcycle anyway?

A custom motorcycle is simply a motorcycle that is highly stylized or which treats aspects such as frame geometry or engine with a special feature. Engines run the custom motorcycles. Two different styles of engines are the RevTech and the S&S. These engines comes in various sizes like 80, 88, 100, and 110 cubic inch.

The most common custom motorcycle is a chopper which is a modified model, typically a Harley Davidson although the history goes as Indian, Triumph and BSA motorcycles were "chopped". These days Japanese motorcycles are being transformed into choppers.

A process where rear fenders were "bobbed" and front fenders, crash bars, saddlebags, windshields, head and tail lights, kickstands, and mufflers were discarded to improve the machines power-to-weight ratio. The forks of the custom motorcycle were extended to improve ground clearance and later raked as well to compensate for better stability.

The term chopper has the history of coming from the origins of motorcycle customization. The parts that were considered to be be extra or not useful were literally removed or "chopped" off the motorcycle design to reduce the weight of the bike and also to increase the overall performance while racing or riding at high speeds.

The description of a chopper is simply a motorcycle built with long forks, a stretched frame, chrome and billet embellishments and a tri-tone $10,000 paint job. Places like Cutting Edge Illusions, Crazy Horse, O's, Robbies, Law Brothers Cycles, Gunslinger, MCCALL COLORS, Rock and Roll, Kustom Flames, Bad Ass, Cycle Finish, and Aj's are some great quality paint shops to name a few.

The motor vehicles industry is one of the most innovative businesses in the world today. Names like Big Dog, Orange County, MGS, Chica, and Harley Davidson are among the highest selling custom motorcycle products and vehicles brands in the United States of America.

Brands such as Big Bucks and OCC do not build true choppers. Some products of custom motorcycles are House of Kolor, PPG, Kuryakyn, Zombie, Widow, and Spider. Get yours today!
