Running a custom motorcyle shop is not for the weak


If you are a fan of the show American Chopper, you may think that running a custom motorcycle shop is a dream job. It might be a dream job, but it is not easy.

Street Chopper Magazine's website features an inside perspective of building custom bikes from Sara Liberte, a bike builder at North Hills Cycle in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Sara and her partners love building custom bikes, but the job also means long hours, demanding customers, and the day-to-day headaches of running a business. Even dedicated bike builders have days where they want to throw a wrench across the shop in frustration. You think you can handle it?

Do you build custom bikes? Do you run your own shop or plan to open one? Give us your perspective the business of building custom bikes and leave a comment below. We want to hear your story. Don't be afraid to brag.
