Build Consult Details

This is an example of what a full custom build would cost on a good condition 1974 Honda CB 360 donor bike. This is the checklist we work through for the build process: 

Base price $7000.00 US dollars. 


We have also listed any additional upgrades that you may consider.  Keep in mind that these are optional based on the initial inspection and driving of the bike prior to tear down.  With the exception of the powder coating of the frame they can be done at a later time. Our goal is to give you a bike that we don’t want to part with and we would enjoy to keeping around as well as never letting a bike leave the shop that hasn’t met out extremely high standards in both appearance and functionality.

Build time is typically 12 to 16 weeks from the scheduled start time, but this is subject to change. These builds are custom one-off builds and it can be very difficult to source parts/build parts for these machines. We cannot guarantee a build complete time, but we can guarantee that when it is ready, it will be to the highest of standards. We will not let anything leave the shop until it is 100%.

 

During the build, we will be in contact with you throughout the process, giving you updates with pictures as the build progresses.
