We examine, as model-independently as possible, the production of bileptons at hadron colliders. When a particular model is necessary or useful, we choose the 3-3-1 model. We consider a variety of processes: q anti-q -> Y^{++} Y^{--}, u anti-d -> Y^{++} Y^{-}, anti-u d -> Y^+ Y^{--}, q anti-q -> Y^{++} e^{-} e^{-}, q anti-q -> phi^{++} phi^{--}, u anti-d -> -> phi^{++} phi^{-}, and anti-u d -> phi^{+} phi^{--}, where Y and phi are vector and scalar bileptons, respectively. Given the present

At the LHC, the reach is extended considerably: vector bileptons of mass M_Y <= 1 TeV are observable, as are scalar bileptons of mass M_phi <= 850 GeV.
