Handbuilt Show 2023!

2023 Handbuilt Motorcycle Show Gallery…300+ photos!

The 2023 Handbuilt Motorcycle Show was April 14-16 at the Austin American-Statesman on historic South Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas — the same weekend as the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas at COTA (the Circuit of the Americas).

A family affair! Bike: @eli22carver

It was another incredible show, with more than 150 of the most incredible hand-built custom motorcycles in the country, along with 100,000 square feet of hot rods, art, stunt performances, the Wall of Death, and live music from headliners Sudan Archives, Soccer Mommy, and Allah-Las.

The Wall of Death

Once again this year, our man on the ground was photographer and racer Kody Melton (@kodymelton), whose two Harley-Davidson race bikes were featured in the show.

Without further ado, please enjoy these highlights from the show!

Handbuilt Invited Builders: If you’d like high-res versions of your bike, please email us ([email protected]), and please tag @kodymelton and @bikeboundblog if you share them.

    Thanks for the great photos!

    Lots of beautiful bikes, but Dozer is just on a different level right now. It’s rolling art, yet completely rideable. I’m just blown away!

      “…completely rideable”
      Dozer’s the nicest guy, na otherworldy builder. He would not say his prize-winning bike is completely rideable.
