What do Custom Bike Builders do?

Motorcycle riders who are serious about their hog, chopper, or crotch rocket desire bikes that reflect their own unique style and personality. So, they hire Custom Bike Builders to create one-of-a-kind, personalized rides.

When you’re a Custom Bike Builder, your customer might be a business looking to auction the bike off to charity, a wealthy citizen with a need for speed, or a corporation hoping to use the motorcycle as a marketing tool. Who knows, you might even meet famous collectors or Hollywood Actors!

Whether the customer is an average Joe who’s saved her pennies for 10 years, or the President Of The United States, your Custom Bike Builder duties are the same. The first order of business is to listen to the customer’s needs, wants, wishes, and desires. That might mean offering suggestions, making sketches, or simply verifying every detail she lists.

With a plan in hand, you take part in every step of the production. You hunt down and order supplies. If you can’t find what you need (which happens all the time), you build it yourself.

From gas tanks to exhaust pipes, you put on a Welder ’s hat one minute and a Metal Worker ’s the next. In addition, you use your Mechanic talents, and incorporate your stylistic and artistic skills, too.

With every last logo, color choice, design variation, size consideration, and long hour behind you, you present the bike to your customer and watch her realize her dream.
