Been done on here before, but as you missed it.

Not my cup of tea but enough to put the shits up a lot of bike builders, Biggest problem it will have is getting over the name Honda, as its meant for the American market anything not good ol us will struggle.

Well I don't mind doing it again.

The whole point of a Custom Bike is that it is built to Customer Specification. It is unique, one of a kind never to be repeated. Others may look the same but to the casual observer enough subtle differences will identify and distinguish one custom from another and the paint is the decider. No two custom bikes will ever have the same paint job.

Honda's 'Fury' factory "custom" is taking the basic design of a custom and making it a generic shape, identical to it's siblings in every way. A true custom has plenty to distinguish it from it's siblings and has another, more important attribute that the Fury will never have.

A Soul.

True customs have in their make up several ingredients that give them a soul. The vision of the designer, the skills of the builder, the artistry of the painter and the love of the rider. Factory customs don't have that until they are seriously altered and even then they lack a certain individuality as they share a name with a legion of others. A custom bike is One Of A Kind. Nice try Honda, but it doesn't do it for me.
