Building one-off motorcycles for customers requires a bit of a delicate balancing act: the shop has to adhere to the wants, needs, and personal tastes of the client, while also aligning with the builder’s style, abilities, and overall ethos. Juggling these elements can be a headache, though sometimes, things come together wonderfully, with a design and theme that jives well with both the builder of the bike, the characteristics of the donor, and the customer who commissioned it.
