Not sure what's what? Do you have questions about what defines a particular style of custom bike?
Choosing a custom motorcycle can be a daunting prospect. There are so many builders out there, all with vastly different products. So how do you select the right one for you?
In this article, we will show you some of the most important things to consider when parting with your hard earned cash.
Important questions to ask your bike builder before buying your custom motorcycle
Franc came to us with a special request to build a tribute bike for his Air Force history. After a devastating Military accident that left him in hospital for over 12 months, Franc had to learn to walk again. Riding a motorcycle was only a dream. Well we are very proud to have delivered Franc's Dream. Check out Franc's PARATROOPER BIKE here. It is a custom bobber with special airbrushing by our own inhouse AISBRUSH ARTIST.

A lesson in selecting a Custom Bike Builder 101
Today we learnt a very important lesson in choosing a custom bike builder and purchasing bikes on the internet. Not all bike builders are the same! With the popularity of TV shows such as “American Chopper” and “Biker Build-off”, there has been an increase in the number of “custom shops”, both in Australia and abroad. With this increase, there has come along a number of poor quality cowboy bike builders, working from home garages or rented workspaces, all claiming to be “bike builders or customizers”.
Read this article and avoid the pitfalls when selecting a Custom Bike Builder.
If you are looking for a Custom bike builder in Sydney, a Custom motorcycle fabricator in NSW or a custom bike builder in Australia, then you MUST read this article. Dont buy a Custom motorcycle in Australia or a custom bike in sydney until you do.
It is a perfect illustration that shows the difference between "cheap" bike builders and "Good Value" bike builders. You always want 'good value', but you NEVER want 'cheap'.
After a glowing review by "Torquing 2 Wheels .com" the Destino57 Custom Bobber is available for sale. If you are looking for Custom Bobbers, check out this review. This Custom bobber was designed by Nikki B, and has all the hallmarks of a classic 50's inspired cruiser.
Here are a few quotes from the review of the Destino Custom Bobber;
"....the photo's won't do the custom paintwork anything close to justice, so you'll have to trust me that the paint work is out of this world...Hats off to their in-house painter, only known as the " Stig "...
"Once I sat on the 57, my initial thoughts lead to how comfortable and natural it feels."
"Surely this can't be a learner bike."
"...Destino's 57, Yamaha V-Star 650 is a fantastic learner legal bike ( and then sum ), that will have you living your dreams without the price tag of a ground up build, yet has the quality of all things Japanese"
In a recent article in the AGE newspaper, an interesting discussion continues. How much training should a novice rider undertake before he/she is allowed on the roads? Whilst the article is mainly focused on VIC rider training and testing, it certainly applies to all of Australia.We asked our Destino Facebook Fans if they thought that new riders are given enough training? And, Should there be compulsory follow up training?Here’s what they said. Read more about LAMS testing.
Also get the inside information on the Destino Samurai which was launched at the recent Australian Motorcycle Show. The Destino Samurai draws inspiration from the Japanese designer Shinya Kimura who was a pioneer of the Samurai style.
