This one was right in front of the BRP Spyder booth. Gorgeous custom build with a Suzuki 998 engine. I’m not a big fan of choppers so the cafe racers tend to jump out at me at these custom bike contests. This one was beautifully executed by a builder called “Full of Hate” (which is an ironic name because I loved this bike.)

This was a nice find. If you’re going to the show, Greg Ross and his sweet Triumph TR6R bobber are located just in front of the Honda booth on the right as you enter the show.

By the way, if you’re going to the show, mention discount code MOTOINF to receive $3 off admission.

I’m not planning to do a lot of coverage of custom bikes. There are a lot of people focused on that beat who do a great job of it – Cyril Huze Post and BikeEXIF to name a few. But you might like the bike in the attached photos. I saw this at a Triumph Demo Day at Martin Motorsports last summer.

It’s a 1983 CB1100F engine mounted on a combination of a 1981 CB900f frame, 1998 CB900rr back end, and CBR 600 front end, painted in a stealth fighter scheme. Some other bits and odds and ends.  The guy who owned it works as a welder at a machine shop and claims to have put the whole thing together for under $2,500.  One of the coolest DIY custom projects I’ve ever seen.
