Custom Touring Bagger Built by Roy’s Philosophy
What happens when a custom bike is built and it has a mishape two states away? It’s a bad scene if you can’t take the bike into a Harley-Davidson dealership.
The Solution – Roy builds custom bikes that can be driven down the street or across the country and can be serviced at a dealership no matter where you are traveling.
His builds are built on steroids and features chassis dynamics that allows the pilot to ride comfortably in the saddle for hours.

Roy is a proponent of powder coating. He likes the toughness and durability of the product. He also likes the coating that resembles ceracoat, a ceramic polymer used in firearms. So he started off with cerecoat style finish on the wheels.
