There is nothing like a custom motorcycle, if you are the builder then you have the pride in knowing you designed and built a custom motorcycle, as the owner you ride high in your seat know your motorcycle is like no other, and while it is true that no two motorcycles are the same there are some totally unique designs that all but push beyond the basic conception of custom motorcycle design. Here are a few examples.
1. Forgiato Radurra glass wheels
Ever wish your motorcycle could float? Well if you got the $10,000.00 for a set of Forgiato Radurra glass motorcycle wheels then you can make the impossible thing into a reality. These wheels are made from a hard-coated polycarbonate and attached to aluminum hubs making then both the most expensive and the coolest one of a kind custom design for motorcycles and cars.

2. Carlos Alberto Wooden Motorcycle and Scooter

3. Fully Chromed Yamaha YZF-R1
They say chrome won’t get you home but the amount of chrome on this bike is enough to be its own rescue beacon. This Yamaha YZF-R1 is a perfect example chrome gone wild. I love chrome but I am willing to bet that in direct sunlight this bike would give you a sunburn.
