Best Custom Motorcycles 2017Yes! You’re right! Better late than never! This is the list of the 21 best custom motorcycles of 2017! Last year we did a voting based on the stats of popular bikes that year but this time we kept things much simpler. So no hard data, voting system, social statistics, or fancy algorithms; just a 100% subjective list from me and my buddy Ron Betist. Unlike other years (2015, 2016), we’ve made a list of 21 instead of 10 bikes. Just because we can (and 2017 was a great year for custom bikes!). Don’t hate us for this, if you have any comments or suggestions, do your thing below! Check out the list here, for more info pictures and info about the bike, just click on the [more info] link.

Oh, and we didn’t number them from 1 to 21, this was totally impossible for us and kept us arguing. And next to that: we didn’t want to place one custom bike above the other. So if you don’t mind: find the best one for yourself!
