Custom Built Motorcycles

This post is a DRAFT until I say so.  Why?  Cuz I said so.

Custom built motorcycles.

Who doesn’t love custom motorcycles.  Choppers, Cafe Racers, Drag Racers, Bobbers, E-VOs, Rats.  I love ’em all.  I wish I owned one of each!  And I wish I could build my very own custom chopper.

That was my plan when I retired.  Build a bike like I want and save the money that labor costs.  A sweet cafe racer or chopper.

Then I got sick and injured and haven’t gotten back to a healthy spot that would allow me to build my dream.  But I still have the dream.

If you have the $35,000 to $100,000 that custom bikes cost…sweet!

HERE is a great list of custom motorcycle builders across the U.S.  It’s a great list of some really top-tier builders.  You will recognize a lot of the shop names on the Custom Cut List.  The list was posted to Twitter by @TheBarHopper1

If you want to build a motorcycle check out this list of Things to Consider from the good folks at and @ToddHalterman.




  1. hello! I also want to modify my motorcycles, but if I had money $ 35,000 to $ 100,000 custom bikes cost wow That’s too expensive so …
    and thanks for the info its very helpful

    • Isn’t that insane?? I want to take a frame and build a bike that I can ride. I don’t want a showpiece or a “theme” bike. I want to be able to say “Yeh, I built it. Ain’t she sweet?” But I ain’t (can’t) spending 35 thousand even for a frame up build.
