My brother and I used to dream about building our own custom bike. We had sketches and blueprints and everything. It was going to be expensive though and take a TON of work, and it was much more affordable and easier to simply buy a new bike.
Of course. Fully aware the work that would be required, especially from how much its taking to rebuild my '73 mini pickup.

Remember - this thread is "Dream bike" well My dream would be to actually build myself one. To my personal requirements that ticks my box.

Not sure why I feel the need to defend myself :p:D - my dream bike would be one that I build to my specific spec. Let's move on

I ride a
2005 RC51, and a 2004 Honda CBR1000RR
RC213V for a dream bike, or for a more practical dream (if such a thing) a RC45 or RC30.

RC213V

In stock trim, the RC213V handling is amazing but the horse power is disappointing at only about 100hp. So I would want to fit it with the optional race kit that brings the bike back over 200hp and includes the following...

These are the contents and features of the race kit:
-Engine control unit
-Fr air duct
-Exhaust muffler
-AI joint cover set
-Spark plug
-Loadcell type quick shifter
-Gear shift drum (reverse)
-Data logger set
-Rr cushion connecting rod
-Fr brake pad
-Fr brake lever remote adjuster
-Thermostat set
-Sprocket set
-Clutch guard (CFRP)
-Fr cowl under cover
-Fr winker holeýplug
-Seat back rubber
-Lower cowl drain cap
-Harness modification set
-Fr/Rr maintenance stand
-Indoor machine cover.

Building a completely custom bike is a sure fire way to get what you want.

It can be expensive, or extremely cheap depending on what level of skills and workshop equipment you have available. If you can do most of it yourself then you can save a lot of money.

I've seen some fantastic custom jobs over the years, many of which are a long way from the stereotypical 'chopper'

Hmm...My original dream bike was the Multistrada. When I found a screaming deal on one I pulled the trigger. I love my current ride but with Ducati dropping the V4 in the next gen. MTS that could be the new unicorn for me.

After spending the weekend in a muddy field in the wet countryside, something like the Africa Twin or Tiger wouldn't go amiss.

But in all fairness my dream bike, like a sunny day dream bike, would be the Triumph T120 'Black' in graphite. Although I am also really fond of Yamaha's SRX600 Super Single, although I think I would prefer the pep of the 1200cc Bonne'.
