  3. 3 Boots Jan 25th, 2016 at 9:26 am

    So many awesome bikes, I can’t choose one.

  5. 5 Ray Mansfield Jan 25th, 2016 at 10:00 am

    Badass bikes.

  6. 6 Josh Brady Jan 25th, 2016 at 10:01 am

    Like very much the Knuckle and the WL

  7. 7 Tommy Jan 25th, 2016 at 10:05 am

    For me, in 2 very different styles, it’s the Yellow Ducky & the Scout

  8. 8 Jason Blair Jan 25th, 2016 at 10:20 am

    A lot of great ideas to be inspired by. Pick your style.

  9. 9 C. Zimba Jan 25th, 2016 at 10:27 am

    I can only guess the number of labor hours involved in building these awesome machines. Congrats to all.

    All great builds. I’m seeing two distinct styles in this group. The minimalist bobber with low handlebars but with some hybrid fat back tire variations and the cafe racer style; also with some variations.

    Hope some come to Daytona in March. Would like to check them out from close.

  12. 12 Terence Bohler Jan 25th, 2016 at 12:58 pm

    Some fantastic creations. Thanks Cyril.

  13. 13 Brett Garner Jan 25th, 2016 at 1:01 pm

    US custom builders, where have you been?

  14. 14 Dyno Jan 25th, 2016 at 1:08 pm

    “Mine” are the Knuckle & the WLJ. Would look good side by side in my garage

  15. 15 Freddy Manson Jan 25th, 2016 at 1:11 pm

    The green chopper is so 2000. All the others are interesting.

  16. 16 Mdsphoto Jan 25th, 2016 at 1:32 pm

    Would Love to take the first two bikes for a spin.

    The Plan B’s dustbin faired [ Buell ] custom was created especially for the 1/8 [ curves , bumps and all ] Glemseck 101 which though a contest of speed is anything but a ‘ drag race ‘ . Also the bike is called ” Cherry Salt ” as future plans may include a trip to Bonneville [ with a few modifications ] assuming Bonneville continues to exist . FYI ” Cherry Salt ” has been winning numerous awards even before it was completed . Check out Plan B’s website for more photos as well as BikeExif’s for some of the details . Suffice it to say : ” Cherry Salt ” is a real beast of a bike .

    Imagination and craftsmanship rule in the European bike building industry, time for North American builders to through away the mail order catalogs and get back to innovation.

  20. 20 Gary McKernan Jan 27th, 2016 at 5:14 am

    EU bike builders are awesome. The Hammer 8-Ball deserves to reign this competition. I can’t wait for a ride this summer in Fl. Honestly, all these bikes are great, inspired, and totally different than what we used to see here.
