SPEEDMETAL Shadetree Fabrications

Our latest build “Speedmetal” came to us from a good friend, Bill McNabney. He had this Saxon bike for a few years and was ready to give it a completely different look. He brought it to us mid-summer and Kyle went to work! He salvaged the motor, tranny, wheels and brakes…but everything else had to go! Kyle built the frame, gas tanks, oil tank, handlebars, front end…let’s just say pretty much everything you are looking at was built by Kyle. He spent a lot of time and paid great attention to detail…the entire bike is hand brushed…that alone took several days and hours! We pretty much handed a brush to anyone that walked into the shop to help us out… So thanks to everyone that helped! To date…this bike has taken 1st Place at the J&P Ultimate Builders shows Freestyle class in Atlanta, GA and in Dallas, TX as well as Editors Choice from Ironworks Magazine! Speedmetal will be featured in the March 2013 issue.
