Custom Motorcycle Builders are listed by State. For Alphabetical listings
Once known for his custom motorcycle builds, then for his parts, then for his
design work on the Victory Motorcycle line-up, Arlen and son Cory came full
circle after some recent notoriety with some radical custom builds and then went
on to release 4 production custom motorcycle models under the Arlen Ness name. All
have that familiar Arlen Ness flair.
Since 1998 Big Bear Choppers have made a name for themselves as California's
premier production chopper manufacturer. With feature models like the Sled, the
Athena series, the new G.T.X. .Bagger and the Venom series Big Bear Choppers
have one of the finest product lines out there. A line of parts available also.
Their motorcycles have been featured in
Easy Rider and deserve to be there. From "Old Skool" choppers and bobbers to new
stretched out wide tire motorcycles or just customizing a stock Harley, these guys do
it all. A lot of different looks on a lot of different motorcycles.
Carl Brouhard had been designing
motorcycles for many years with Arlen Ness before opening his own shop in Grass Valley
CA. His style is definitively wide tire and Pro Street but he's not limited by
conventional wisdom of what a custom motorcycle should look like. Take his 57 Chevy
motorcycle or his Jet Bike. There's never been anything like them built before,
probably never again. Even his "cookie cutter" motorcycles have a uniqueness about
them and a look at just one of his motorcycles would never tell the whole story, you
have to see them all to rally appreciate the talent.
Joe Cree of California Customs
builds some serious Hot Rod motorcycles. 26 base models to choose from, without
a doubt the most in the industry. All hand assembled by serious craftsmen. Once
you finally navigate your way to see the motorcycles you can see why Joe is a true
innovator in the custom motorcycle world. These motorcycles are nice
and affordable. Joe will meet or beat any other licensed builder on price
wusing the same quality parts. And Joe is a patriot. We like that!
Scott Long has taken the "Old-School
Builder of the Year" award from the V-twin Bikers Ball and there's little doubt
why. When he's not rebuilding old Harleys he's building new custom old school
style choppers on his own frames. Scott's custom motorcycles builds all have
that authentic Old School look.
For those of you not familiar with
Chica, he hails from Japan. Chica is a very detailed oriented builder whose been
featured on the Discovery channel numerous times. His style is cool and
practical. I'd hate to pigeon hole him with tags like Bobber or Racer, but most
motorcycles bring those terms to mind. You will not go unnoticed, however, if you turn
up at your local motorcycle night with one of Chicas bare bones motorcycles. If fact you may
become the center of attention. Be prepared.
Russell Mitchell style is best described as Fat and Black. Somehow he has
managed to combine "simple" and "over the top" all in one
motorcycle. Lot's of flat
black and brushed aluminum prove once and for all that "less is more". Full line
of parts and motorcycle kits available.
Kutty Noteboom is another Hot Rodder
turned custom motorcycle builder and he definitely brings that flair with him.
Maybe you've seen the documentary "Choppertown". If you haven't go buy it or
rent it. Nuff said. Kutty runs with the 'Sinners" and really doesn't call
himself a motorcycle builder, but sells them when he's done with them. Maybe you'll be
lucky enough to get one.
First off, you'd better like black. If you're ok
with that, you'll love these motorcycles. Bobbers, Lowriders, choppers, all with a
very unique twist. They make a very sweet C.A.R.B and EPA approved production
bobber. Very cool, really black.
This production custom manufacture now features 5 models up from the original
2. well received by the press the were one of the top 10 production motorcycles for
2007 in V-twin/Easyrider magazine. They now have something for everyone
including the new "Intrepidized Bagger" model. You must buy from one of their
Not everyone who likes the custom
motorcycle look or that is into a production custom motorcycle is looking for a monster
engine or a super extreme ride. Some people don't have $30,000 to spend but
also don't want just the standard factory offerings either. For them I bring
you Johnny Pag, a line of full size "custom styled" motorcycles with a smaller
engine and a very small price tag. Johnny Pag motorcycles all have a 300cc motor and
retail under $4700. Ladies love them.
Now this is cool. Replica's of Indian motorcycles plus other retro style
models, such as their Bobber and Boardtrack Racer. Many used motorcycles, including
authentic Indians for sale. Parts area for your Indian motorcycle. If you want an
authentic Vintage look without the vintage mechanical issues these are your
Lifestyles Cycles appears to be more
of a custom motorcycle dealer than full blown custom motorcycle shop although they say
they do custom work I didn't see anything they claim to have done shown on the
site. However, if you live in the Anaheim Area and are in the market for
a new or used Custom motorcycle you will want to stop by as they carry custom
motorcycles from Intrepid, BMC, Saxon, American Ironhorse, Bog Dog and of course
Harley Davidson. I've listed them here because they are a great opportunity to
see multiple makes side by side.
Matt made a name for himself on the
show circuit with only a few motorcycles under his belt. When Discovery Channel put
him on "Biker Buildoff and he won 2 back to back championships he became
legendary for his incredible vision and design. Matt's philosophy that
"perfection is possible" has proven to turn out incredible works of art under
the guise of "motorcycle".
Almost 30 years in the business,
predating the entire Custom motorcycle phenomena that started a decade ago. Since I
haven't been involved in motorcycles myself very long I won't pretend to know what
Simms was doing back then but he's currently building Pro Street style wider
tire motorcycles that have reasonable geometry to them. No super long super raked out
front ends and no over the top wide tires. Pain jobs on these motorcycles are all
original and fit the motorcycles perfectly. There's no way a Ron simms designed
will go unnoticed.
Cole Foster is cooler than you could
ever hope to be. That just the way it is. He doesn't try to be cool, he just is.
A Hot Rodder at heart, Cole's automotive work is coveted by those who want
to be cool also. I just wish he would build even more motorcycles. His site only
displays a few, just enough to hook you in. superb craftsman, cool motorcycles.
Steve Poole builds custom motorcycles. That' about all I can tell you, because
other than some links to some articles he's mentioned in there really is not
much info on the site as to what it is he does exactly.
The waiting list to get a chopper
built by Jesse James' West Coast Choppers is insane. Only 200 motorcycles have been
built over the last ten years. Jesse has managed to turn a small custom
shop into a custom motorcycle empire. First builder to "sell out" to the
Discovery channel, but unlike his American Chopper counterparts Jesse James has
never lost the respect of his fellow "hands on" builders. Probably the 4th most
famous motorcycle builder in the world.
