The Handbuilt show is now an annual event put on by the Revival Cycles. For its 4th year running it’s bigger than ever, leading the charge to promote the love for custom motorcycles, no matter what shape size or style. The event was beautifully done, in a warehouse building with open bay doors that let the perfect Austin, Texas weather in. On top of the bikes featured in the show, the parking lot was chalked full of cool, crazy bikes. Some were stock and super rare, like an old school Bimota. And some were what I would call a rat rod, again still cool. The line to get in was massive, full of eager motorcycle enthusiast all gawking at the different bikes set outside for display. With food truck catering Revival encapsulated everything great about Austin’s culture into one awesome motorcycle show. These are the bikes we thought were most fitting for Moto Networks, but we could have easily been there taking pictures for a week. If you look closely you might see a bike or two we’ve featured before.

The gold flake paint on this build isn’t done justice by our pictures

One of the few custom Harley Street 750’s I’ve ever seen. The trellis frame around the gas tank was perfect.

A gorgeous take on the new Thruxton

This was one of the cleanest builds from the entire show, a truly unique RD-400
This Harley was my favorite of the show, ultra clean while blending both bobber and tracker together.
I would love to see this build with out the knobbies

Gorgeous instrument panel on the Guzzi streamliner
Possibly the most custom CT-110 I’ve ever seen

Mad Max anyone?

Bet you didn’t expect to see the sidecar there!
