Top 10 Custom Motorcycles of 2023

Today we’re thrilled to present BikeBound’s Top 10 Custom Motorcycles of 2023 as judged by you, our readers. We tallied the visits, likes, and engagement of every bike we featured in 2023, meaning the following 10 bikes were selected according to their popularity among our readership — this is the most objective ranking we could achieve.

We noticed a few themes in this year’s Top 10:

  • Forced Induction:  For the first time ever, three of the Top 10 builds have turbos or superchargers. The year of boost!
  • Two Strokes: Smokers often score high marks among our readers, and 2023 was no exception. Three two-strokes made the list, all of them in different styles.
  • Diversity: Rarely has our Top 10 list displayed such a wide variety of bikes, from muscle cruisers to vintage enduros, supermotos to race replicas to cafe racers.

Don’t see one of your favorite bikes? Stay tuned for our 2023 Best Cafe Racers, Best Scramblers and Trackers, Restomods, Editor’s Choice, and more — coming soon!
