Depending on where you go and what kind of customization you want to do, getting a custom motorcycle can cost in the region of $10,000 to even upward of $100,000 in some places.
If you’re getting an old motorcycle completely revamped and customized, then the garage will have to find new parts and components that can cost huge amounts of money.
If you’re getting small customizations done to a newer motorcycle then it shouldn’t cost as much. Some brands of motorbikes will be much more expensive to customize as their parts can be harder to come across or just expensive to replace.
Custom paint jobs on their own can skyrocket your price up to $30,000 for high-end motorcycles, so if you’re serious about customizing your bike, then you’ll have to make sure you’re willing to part with your money.
Buying a brand new bike is probably just as expensive as building a new one. So if you’re trying to revamp an old motorcycle, it may cost more to do that than it would to buy a completely brand new one.

If they’re exclusively finding the parts for you, then it could take longer as they have other customers to look after. It could take anything from a couple of weeks to a few months.
