Since Barnett’s Magazine Online is going to feature around 70 bikes in our coverage of the 75th Daytona Bike Week, we decided to split them into four parts to make it easier to scroll through them. There will be different types of customs in each part for your enjoyment.

  Everybody’s got a favorite style of custom motorcycle and the old tried and true bobbers of today are possibly my favorite style of custom to actually get on and go. Oh I love looking at anything custom even if I don’t enjoy hoping on board and actually riding it as a motorcycle without excuse after excuse being necessary. The basic layout of what’s construed as a modern bobber is my favorite simply because they are always fun to ride if they haven’t been taken to some show-shocking extreme.

   Larry Moore, owner of Moore’s Customs in Wichita, Kansas, is one hell of an independent thinker and more importantly, a doer. All you have to do to verify that is to take a look at his latest creation and you’ll understand where he’s coming from. Bucking every current trend of big wheels and baggers, he’s fabricated, and I mean truly fabricated, a custom motorcycle that truly deserves to be called a masterpiece. Every single piece of the build shows careful thought and good taste along with fabrication perfection.

   When it comes to custom Harleys, I’m a bit motorcycle bi-polar. I like my old Harleys rigid and raw with not one thing on them that doesn’t serve a purpose. Rough, ready, road-worthy and definitely on the loud side of loud. But give me a newer-model custom Harley and I’m the polar opposite. I like them customized yet road-worthy, not re-created into something else altogether that I wouldn’t feel comfortable riding farther than I can initially see from its parking spot.

  European Bike Week 2014 may be long gone even if the year isn’t, but that doesn’t mean the memories are. For the over 90,000 motorcyclists who attended the event this past September, it was fun, fun, fun as usual with a smattering of lovely rides in the Faaker See area of southeastern Austria. Known for its clear turquoise water, Faaker See is a popular vacation spot and a perfect location for a motorcycle event. The 17th annual European Bike Week was a blast on two wheels or off for six straight days with guided rides, concerts, parties, stunt shows, poker run, vendor action, Harley-Davidson test rides and a whole lot more.

       Baggers, bobbers, babes and booze ─ oh my! Must be time for another Biketoberfest in Daytona Beach.

  You know, you just gotta love a guy who lives, breathes, and eats motorcycles like Frank McLane. The Columbia, South Carolina, resident built this gold bobber himself from a little bit of everything and a little help from his friends after a long time spent around everything motorcycles.

   Every year I never hear the end of it from Barnett’s Magazine Online’s longtime photographer, the always lovely and ever smiling Sedrick “Mitch” Mitchell from way, way upstate New York. “Man, you gotta go to the Thousand Islands River Run this year. You gotta go. I promise you you’ll have a great time.” And so it goes, year after year, more pleading from Mitch and even more excuses from me. Sturgis and Daytona are fun and all that, but local rallies have a bit more of a personal touch and flavor to them that’s missing from a gathering of hundreds of thousands of your closest friends.  Sooner or later I’ve got to take up Mitch on his promise, but as usual I’ve failed.

  Nothing’s harder building a custom, especially a show custom (other than building the bike in the first place) than deciding a paint scheme. Choosing the base color is probably the easiest as everyone has a personal preference towards certain colors after just years of living among all of them. Maybe that pedal car or BMX bike you had as a kid set your color stage in a positive tone or maybe the jerk kid in your neighborhood growing up had a purple bike that made you despise that color forever.
