Freedom Machine Build


In 2016 I was approached by the Freedom Machine Motorcycle Show (@freedommachines) in Ontario to build the giveaway bike. Without hesitation I jumped on board threw my own spin on their 1998 Harley Sportster.

A lot of time was put into this bike from welding on the TC Brothers Hardtail, fabricating the sissy bar, hand made pulley cover, seat, tank, and much more. Just click here to see the progress shots!

While at the show Ben Quinn (@benquinnphotography) got some time with the bike and worked his magic capturing some amazing shots. Here’s the final product.

Custom True Fire Bagger


This custom bagger started out by cutting the neck and raking it to allow clearance for the 26″ front wheel. The fuel tank was custom fabricated by Dave. We had also installed stretched bags and a razor tour pack. The true fire was airbrushed by local artist Jordan King.

Copper Glide


Our shop is no stranger when it comes to building big wheel baggers. When it came down to building this custom Road Glide we decided to keep it clean without going to heavy on the accessories.

The front-end was raked out using a HHI neck kit and triple trees plus a 26″ Envy rim. To finish off the rear of the bike we installed a set of tapered stretched bags and an extended rear fender.

Flat White Harley Bagger


Being that we’ve been building custom motorcycles for over 20 years now, it’s pretty safe to say that we have a pretty good idea of reading our clients. The owner of this bike came to us with an open mind and left the design up to Dave.

The Bike was originally white with lot’s of chrome accessories. Going with the motto less is more, we stripped most of it off to lighten the load.

Dave had stretched and created a set of custom bag fillers. New tail lights were then added as well as some custom Hog Tune Speaker Lids.

The bodywork was painted flat white with some custom graphics and the inner fairing was done in a gloss white. Sam came over and laid some additional lines on the fairing and rear fender.

Some additional things we did to this bagger was added a new 21″ front wheel, lowered the front-end an inch, installed a new Ness wrap around fender and a set of 13″ Chrome Ape Hangers.

If you look close enough you can even see that we created a custom trailer hitch setup that has a hidden receiver under the rear fender skirt.

Harley Softail Bagger


Often enough, we get customers come in the shop that already own a softail but have their hearts set on bagger. Instead of going through the pain of selling and upgrading, the owner of this bike decided to have us give it a makeover.

We installed a 21″ front wheel, white walls, stretched bags and stretched the rear fender. Installed custom turn signals and laid out a wicked flake paint job that was later pinstriped by Yosemite Sam.

Harley Big Wheel Bagger


Check out some pics of this custom bagger built by Dave. It’s had the neck cut and raked, 26″ front wheel, stretched bags, and custom frenched in licence plate which has an old mini truck vibe. The paint was done in house with a candy and heavy flake base which looks wild in the sun.

Custom 250 Prostreet Chopper


The story behind this bike is unlike anything that we’ve ever encountered. One day while at the shop we had a lady come in asking us questions about having a bike built. She seemed to have a good idea of what she wanted but as we got talking more, it turned out that she was having this bike built for her husband as a surprise birthday present! All I could think is this is one lucky dude.

The 23 inch wheel set the stance of this bike perfect. It looked amazing and rode just as good. Some of the details we included with this build was a custom stretched tank that moulded through the seat pan into the rear fender, 113″ Ultima engine, 6 speed and a custom paint job by Jordan King.

Custom Chopper for Dough King Jr.


This customer came in from Quebec with a vision in mind of having a custom chopper built in the style of a Jesse James bike but keeping it a softail and as legal as possible to adhere to their crazy laws. This meant coming up with a way to hide signals, horn etc.

The biggest challenge to creating this bike was hiding all the electrical. Usually the point of a chopper is in the title. Chop all the accessories and keep it bare.

Once the paint was done, we had Yosemite Sam come down and lay some pinstripes which really made the scallops pop.

One of the requests from the client was to have the seat done by Duane Ballard out of California. He’s truly a master of his craft and you can see by the final product of this seat.

Custom 26″ Blue Road Glide


This custom Road Glide just goes to show that you don’t need to be flashy to stand out in a crowd. Most of the major components were blacked out which added a great contrast to the Lambo Blue. The 26″ front wheel was originally a RC Components design which was donated to another project and then replaced with a Performance Machine.

The stretched fuel tank and seat setup were purchased from Paul Yaffe, Bagger Nation products and the rear tail section was from Dirty Bird Customs (formerly sinister industries).

Jinks definitely isn’t shy about putting the miles on this ride and if you are ever in attendance of one of our events, your sure to see it around. Last year at The 4hr Show, hot rod pinstriper Yosemite Sam made his mark on the bike which was truly a pleasure to see happen.
