From a Harley-Davidson Road King to a Suzuki Katana, from a BSA to a Honda CB350, from a Triumph chopper to a Yamaha Virago inspired cafe racer, there seems no end to the Canadian custom motorcycles we have seen built by men and women across the country with a wrench in one hand and a sometimes clear inspiration in their mind’s eye. Sometimes it works and sometimes the results might raise an eyebrow but it is often the doing that provides the satisfaction. Below is the start of our archive of custom bikes through the years. There will be many more – and they aren’t going to be in any particular order.
