We acquired our build off bike from Roy’s co-worker and our personal family friend, John Quinn. John is a Marine Corps veteran, who layed his bike down some odd years ago. After giving it some thought, he decided that motorcycles were no longer for him. We purchased his bike for the build off, because we love that fact it came from a veteran with hopes of it going to another veteran.
It is a 1999 Kraft Tech Rigid frame, 80 cu in Evo motor, 21 in front with a 16in rear, we changed the front end to a 39 mm, it’ll have custom sheet metal by us, custom seat by Matt Hurtado of Working Mans Customs and a killer paint job by Taylor Schultz of Schultz Designz. The build is under way, we are finishing up the initial mock up and metal finishing on the frame. As with any build we have a specific timeline for completion, we are excited to see this come to life in just 106 days.

Roy and Nikki Martin
Roy Martin of @roystoyscustoms is a family run business since 1994. Roy started with his first Harley Davidson, which was a 1994 Heritage Softail Special. After putting 2000 miles on it, he had it torn down to build his first custom motorcycle. Roy’s wife, Christy, was upset, using many choice words, and saying “you better know how to put this back together”.
Roy is teaming up with his daughter Nikki who also happens to be at the helm of Roy’s Toys as Chief Operating Officer. The duo will be building a bike with an incredible story that will be unfolding in the coming months.
