Cheap insurance for custom bike?????

I have a custom bike, not listed in NADA...

None of the big insurance companies will offer full coverage on my bike.
Its a 2011 Rods & Rides bobber

I have it insured through Foremost insurance - but it costs me over $100 a month.

Does anyone else out ther know a cheaper alternative?

Thanks

Agree..... I have progressive with full replacement value for $366 per year, and That includes $4000 for accessories, then again..... mine is an 07' and is NADA listed. I had to fight with them to insure it, call, don't do it online.

Green my setup is pretty much like yours. Same bike and right at $100/MO through Foremost.

I don't know if the bike is the problem though. I think it might have more to do with my excessive speeding tickets.

R&R is listed on NADA.

My broker does alot of my other stuff through Progressive so I would ASS-U-M-E she looked at them also.

Progressive: $98 per year for my spec Shovel. Make sure you tell them that your custom bike is not 9 feet long and cost $50k or whatever; tell them it's built like an old school Harley and offer to send them a picture to prove it. The price will drop.

Can't help you with the speeding tickets.

WHY would you want *Cheap* insurance for a custom motorcycle...?????

Buy a full coverage policy that covers ALL the extra ameneties,features and accessories on your ride-then *god forbid* you ever NEED Full Replacement value or serious repairs/overhaul you'll be covered.
Provide *copys* of all your receipts and "extra's" that your ride contains so there wont be any discrepancy if you need to file a claim.

I know people who've had good experiences and decent rates w/Geico and Liberty Mutual .
(I have my Business-Homeowners-Fleet & Dealers Insurance thru Liberty Mutual)

If your license is clean and you have documentation of the bikes value you can shop around and get alotta quotes.
ANY Federally Registered Dealer/Manufacturer or Shop like myself can write up a NADA appraisal for your bike for you to provide to the insurance co. of your choice for value and appraisal/coverage purposes.
It must be on a shops letterhead with their State & Federal Registry Number as well as their Tax ID info for verification purposes.
They can itemize and explain the type,worth and *custom* classification of your motorcycle and fax it to the insurance co. for approval/verification.

We've done it for people at least 5 times and it's been approved and accepted by ALL the insurance companys that were contacted & shopped for.
Theres gotta be a shop in your state that will help you out.
