It was more than a year since I was searching a reputed Custom Motorcycle Workshop in the City of Joy Calcutta, became Kolkata now. Kolkata, having the sudden passions, the cheerful chaos, the utter contempt for mere commerce, the fiery response to the smallest provocation and it has the strengths. Calcutta embodies the Bengali love of culture; the triumph of intellectualism over greed; the complete transparency of all emotions, the disdain with which hypocrisy and insincerity are treated; the warmth of genuine humanity; and the supremacy of emotion over all other aspects of human existence. Some says “That’s why Calcutta is not for everyone. You want your cities clean and green; stick to Delhi. You want your cities, rich and impersonal, go to Bombay. You want them high-tech and full of draught beer, Bangalore’s your place. But if you want a city with a soul, come to Calcutta.”
Since a year I, literally, couldn’t find a branded and promising name who will custom your Bike in Kolkata, I used all possible offline and online source but then also couldn’t find one with a brand name. Finally I ended with these guy’s shop, Highway Customs.
They say , Highway customs is a group of enthusiastic riders whose only is motto to give the bike lovers the chance of riding and owning the bike of their dream, which no one will have in their vicinity, which will be one of a Kind and a Signature bike. A machine that people worship, a machine which will force people to turn back while passing it. Highway customs receives your own old bikes and modifies it into a customs dream machine, which you have forever dreamt of. It presents you with the best of your desired features and enriches personality and elevate your confidence as well as your societal strata. We are a team of custom bike designer, we are specializes in custom choppers, bobbers, baggers, pro street bikes. We customize sheet metal into original designs is what sets our custom bikes ahead of the competition. Designs range from custom fenders, gas tanks, frame, handlebars, and exhaust – to trick “one of a kind” personalized pieces. Creating one off parts comes naturally while building and designing custom bikes from the ground up.
Something interesting is they have a integrated advance and sophisticated software which can give a true visual of your custom Bike in 3D. So one can literally visualize the actual design and the graphic of the bike before it is actually made. This sounds very unique and amazing concept to see your dream motorcycle in the computer screen.
