So You Want To Build A Bike
So you want to build a custom bike, where do you begin, what style do you want, how much do you want to spend?
All of these things come to mind and unless you are some “A-List” celebrity it’s unlikely that you will have the budget for those bike you see on the TV?
So let’s come back a bit towards reality.
There are essentially three styles in vogue at the moment, Bobbers, Frisco Style Chops and Low Riders, they can be soft tails or hardtails although most bobbers and Frisco style chops these days are hardtails.
They aren’t built for long distance rides, they are more the bar hopper style bikes that you ride short distances at a time, say 30 miles of so, have a break and then ride some more. Bloody good fun if you are weaving around country roads, bloody painfully boring if you are trying to do motorways.
A soft tail low rider on the other hand can be ridden long distances quite comfortably, the choice is yours.
