Custom Motorcycles at Long Beach IMS

International Motorcycle Show

Custom motorcycle builders of all types were out in force at the International Motorcycle Show at Long Beach, California.

The motorcycles on display ranged from a futuristic KTM sport bike to vintage Harley-Davidson’s made into 21st century customs.

Other brands represented in the rows of custom motorcycles were bikes that started life as a Boss Hoss or an Indian, as well as a Suzuki superbike and a single-cylinder Yamaha SR500 café racer.

Check out the collage of pictures above that show a few of the custom motorcycles at IMS.

Besides the custom motorcycles at the Long Beach International Motorcycle Show, attendees had many different moto-related experiences over the weekend, including autograph signings by MotoGP stars Nicky Hayden and Ben Spies, and the latest in 2011 motorcycle offerings from Ducati, Triumph and the Big Four Japanese manufacturers.
