Weirdest Custom Motorcycle You Have Even Seen

What is the ‘most interesting’ (weirdest) custom motorcycle you have ever seen?  To start things off, here is a picture of a custom motorcycle that looks like “The Old Lady in the Shoe”!  Believe it or not this was in our hometown Grants Pass, Oregon a few years back.  It certainly drew a crowd and people slowed to take a look.  After you get past the awkwardness of having to ride in this piece of art, you must look at the detail.

Would you like to build a “unique” motorcycle?  To get started on such a venture ones imagination has to have the freedom to not be afraid of others opinion.

Does it still sound like a good idea?  You may not want to build a motorcycle like the one pictured but maybe a cool retro would be more your style.  The café racers are a sweet ride and the look is pretty trendy right now.

When you do finish your build don’t forget to get a Throttle Rocker to help with cruising on those back roads.  The Throttle Rocker will really help with wrist fatigue and pain from holding the throttle on your ride.
