Fusion Style Custom Motorcycles


For one-off custom motorcycles, we are beyond the One trend. Beyond the Chopper & Bobber trends. We entered what I call the “Fusion Style”. It doesn’t matter anymore the engine you use, the modern and vintage influence you get, the type of new or old school you belong to, the width of your rims, the style you pursue. After reproducing and re-interpreting the styles of the past, the new rage is to fuse several styles, to mix engines and components of different times to create your own custom motorcycle recipe for a custom bike looking like nothing else. Creativity has always been in mixing parts and colors that “never met” before. Here are examples ofย 2 tentatives trying to break away from the usual custom mold.

    Yeah, sorry, that stuff does nothing for me. I’m too much of a traditionalist I guess. Fusion to me is mixing traditional styling with newer modern technology. That’s why they make chocolate and vanilla ice cream though.

    Grayhawk #2 aka “Sarah” with a “gmail” account, IP address information can be given if you would like me to go that far as well. You cant find anything on the internet, anything. You really need to stop copying things down and adding your own little flare too it. You have done it to my father and a few others, now Grayhawk. Quit the shit and stop attatching “motorcycle lot.com) to it as well.

    I like the 2nd bike but the 1st is HIDEOUS

    Thanks Conrad, your Dad can open his own gate, keep going to school as it looks like your getting a bit of knowledge from school. Cyril’s group fixed this problem once. I guess they, he, she, it just log back up from a different IPS address. Thanks again.

    (Would make Marilyn Monroe’s subway-vent photo look tame by comparison.)

    Ha ha Bear – my secret’s out!
    My inner Parnelli Jones dresses in drag!

    Nicker – I embrace the thrill of the ride which sometimes expands beyond the twist of the throttle…

    Yeah… The Norton Commando engined “Rouge Racer”, (on the left) is actually a work of Lamb Engineering from UK, not Fusion Motorcycles. I have admired (and voted for) this lovely bike at London custom show in 2008. Same guys that built “Son of a Gun” BSA based bike.
