In the USA, if you’re in search of a killer custom motorcycle show, there’s The One Moto Show in Portland, OR and there’s The Handbuilt Show in Austin, TX. Both have established themselves as must-see events in the custom worlds and both did not disappoint this year. Timed perfectly with the MotoGP races at the nearby Circuit of the Americas, The Handbuilt Show was packed all weekend. Hosted by Revival Cycles, the show had a wide range of manufactures and styles on hand. From early boardtrackers to completely hand-built air-cooled superbikes, there was a little something for everyone.
It was clear that the level of customs has elevated from years past and it’s great to see the growing support and appreciation for the custom scene by more of the mainstream. The builds at the show were all pretty amazing and it took a few laps, or even a few visits, to let it all sink in. Many of the bikes pictured below are by names you’d recognize, yet many are not. Who can name all of the bikes and builders here?
