Bryan Thompson, hailing from the Central Coast of California, has been building custom motorcycles since 2001, but his passion for racing and creating things with his hands started at a much earlier age. Now Bryan lives and works in Arroyo Grande, California, building custom motorcycles and refurbishing vintage bikes for enthusiasts near and far. In his free time, you can find him spending time with his family, skateboarding and planning ways to break records at Bonneville Speed Week at the salt flats race track in Utah.

There’s excitement from building a bike – check out of normal life – creating a bike that’s a piece of art. I’m very fortunate doing something that I love as my profession.

There’s no other place like it on the planet. It’s its own race track. Never seen anything like.
