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.)

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.
