    My fave bike has to be the Indian. The Indian factory should be doing bikes like this to take on the HD Sporty’s and Lowriders.

    A lot of creativity there!

    Some very cool sleds.

    To be noticed is the diversity of platforms/motors. Very interesting creations.

    Wow, wow. A few million dollars on the show floor.

    Cyril, any guess which bike will win on Sunday?

  7. 7 Drake Oct 8th, 2016 at 11:41 am

    Liking bikes 1/2/3 from the top.

    I lean for the black and red Scout. Custom but practical.

    After reading Part 1 I had the impression that “theres some really nice bikes and some really ugly, bazaar bikes also. After reading part 2 my impressions were confirmed beyond a doubt. I also recognize that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. In that context, I’m sure there is something here for all tastes.

    I have 3 Words for these Custom Builders from Europe, amazing, Amazing & Amazing! Nothing for nothing, it is sooo refreshing as a Motorcycle Lover for 50 Years to see their Unique Ideas and you can feel that they Build with a true compassion with no Ego whatsoever. It is almost as if their Builds are an expression of what they are feeling or about a period of what they are going through emotionally in their personal lives. I guess it is hard to explain, but Thank You Cyril for sending these Pictures because I wont be able to see the Bikes in Person. I would welcome to hear some of the comments these Craftsman think about when they were Building these Magnificent Works of Art, on Wheels.

    Cyril one more thing, Everyone of these Bikes have a Real Gas Tank and they are all made to Ride.

  12. 12 Boots Oct 8th, 2016 at 7:04 pm

    Great looking bikes!! Thanks Cyril! Probably would not have seen them except in this blog! Thanks again!!!

    As Bigalyts says, you should thank Cyril and the photographers for the hard work involved in bringing you almost live great pictures of what is done in the rest of the world. It’s a lot of work for the builders and for our preferred journalist/expert. It’s not about bikes pleasing all tastes. It’s about the labor of love involved while custom building these machines.. And anyway, many of these bikes are better that what I see here in the US.

    Some very unusual and creative stuff.

  15. 15 Gary Rezner Oct 9th, 2016 at 8:02 am

    Yep, pictures you don’t see anywhere else. Thanks for this report.

  16. 16 baddad Oct 9th, 2016 at 8:17 am

    Most of the bikes are inspired from the past. Where is the future?

  17. 17 Jerrman Oct 9th, 2016 at 11:37 am

    Some real creativity and craftsmanship there. Indian Tomahawk looks great. Agree with Tom Ryan that Indian should be making some version of this (maybe a Bobber like new the Moto Guzzi V9 or the about to be released BMW NineT Pure. Also, like the one right underneath the Indian which looks like a BSA.

    Hi, in reply to Bigalyts one bike doesn’t have a fuel tank at all. Strom 36 is my motorcycle and is an
    electric Motorcycle. And Thank you to Cyril Huze for showing my Bike here

    The beemer at the top is incredible.

  20. 20 Badams Oct 11th, 2016 at 1:29 am

    Europe looks like it will overtake Japan as the next style standard. Refreshing!

  21. 21 Mack Oct 11th, 2016 at 6:53 am
