We're about to do a write-up on a $100,000 bike, but first we want to show you something for 1/10th the cost that is an absolute work of art. Spin Cycle Industries was started by two friends Eric and Josh. Together they build some very beautiful bikes. The bikes they sell are all custom so when this bike sells it's gone for good. The bike pictured is a customized 1982 Yamaha Virago XV 750 ($13,000). It had about 7,000 miles on it and they added about 800 more during the build. The bike has so many upgrades it would be impossible for me to list them all. Check out their blog for all the details and the full description.
