Hmmm, why's it 90° out of whack?

It's hard to tell with my head tilted to the side, but what's 'custom' about it?

Yeah, I got a kink in my neck so I stopped watching but, it doesn't look to be custom, just some after market add ons.

Got a few things done to it, but I wouldn't call it custom. Personalized. Plenty of things on it I would do differently, but I've done them on mine and it's your bike. Love the spark plug leads, looks great with the tank.
As far as the video goes, started vertical, caused the 90 degree error for the rest.

Judging by the license plates English isn't his first language. Sweet bike regardless and don't worry about splitting hairs on the definition of "custom" OP
