Salinas Boys Customs -
Cole Foster is cooler than you could
ever hope to be. That just the way it is. He doesn't try to be cool, he just is.
A Hot Rodder at heart, Cole's automotive work is coveted by those who want
to be cool also. I just wish he would build even more motorcycles. His site only
displays a few, just enough to hook you in. superb craftsman, cool motorcycles.
Saxon Motorcycles -
Founded in 2004 Saxon Motorcycles is yet another in a growing field of
production custom motorcycles. With 35 dealers in the United States and
distributors in Europe Saxon has already positioned itself to become a major
player in the Custom motorcycle industry. With 7 models to choose from Saxon can
fill the need from Pro Street to Chopper to more Bobber style motorcycles.
Shane Gatto Customs -
Apparently business is good for Shane since his
website is mostly promoting the articles written about his motorcycles rather than
actually telling you what he can do for you, although I guess you could read the
articles on his Custom motorcycles if you can find them. I can't even give my
impressions because the pics are so small you really can't see any detail.
Hopefully Shane Gatto will read this and email a useful description of his
Sovereign Custom, LLC -
West Palm Beach, FL
Hello Bobber lovers. Sovereign
Custom is making award winning bobbers in southern Florida. As a one time Pro
Street fan I'm now a converted bobber lover and I really like what I see on this
site. These are very clean bikes, as bobbers should be, with a few extras like
oil coolers (always nice), what look to be 60 spoke wheels, Metzler marathon
tires (I run nothing else on my 4 bikes) and really sweet looking controls. I
see nothing on the high def pics that would indicate any shortcuts have been
taken on these builds. When I imagine a bobber this is pretty much exactly what
I have in mind.
S.R.B. Customs -
This family owned business won the
Texas Chop Off with their radical build "Blessed Hellride". At first glance I
thought their style was "Old School Chopper", but upon further investigation I
find that they build any style motorcycle. These guys do not just buy some parts and
"assemble" a motorcycle. No they build their own frames and parts as they need them
and use off the shelf where it makes more sense. Nice Texas choppers.
Ssinister Choppers -
John Shope recently won CMT's
chopper challenge with his custom black and white Seether motorcycle. John's
definitely a Hot Rodder at heart and his custom motorcycle builds reflect that. Even
his themed motorcycles look like they're going a 100mph when they're sitting still.
Stevenson's Cycle -
Stevenson's builds old school bobbers. Spring seats, small gas tanks,
springer front ends. Has some interesting parts for sale.
Strokers Dallas -
Rick Fairless probably doesn't need
me to tell you who he his but I'll give it a shot. This is not a guy who claims
to be building motorcycles all his life. No, in fact he sold paint for 20 years before
opening his motorcycle shop. Should have started it sooner. Fairless has a true flair
for motorcycle design. You can tell by the finished product that the whole
is in his head before he ever picks up a wrench or torch. A lot of guys build
motorcycles, but a few create works of Art. Rick Fairless definitely falls into the
Sucker Punch Sally's -
Their "66Bobber" model won "Bobber of the Year" in 2007 from V-twin/Easyrider
magazines. Six models available at this writing all Bobber style except for the
"Swinger", the only suspension model. These guys really have their act together
with pricing of option fully shown on the site. You can figure exactly want you
want and what it will cost you up front. Rollers and Kit motorcycles also available,
also priced out on website.
Suicide Cycles -
Charlie Cooper and his crew build
custom motorcycles that real bikers will still be riding 20 years from now. Love the
style: rear fender hugging the tire, just enough rake to be cool yet rideable
and no extra parts. Either customized stock Harley or ground up build the end
result is the same: a one of kind custom motorcycle you can hop on and go.
