And as cool as that is, a lot of our customers have no idea that we’ve been creating new bikes on a regular basis in our shop for years now.
In addition to the stock bikes that are customized at the shop, we’re on pace to roll out five from-the-ground-up builds this year, the latest being an X-Wedge-based FXR and a 1947 Knucklehead replica for the National Motorcycle Museum.
