Welcome to Hobby Machine!
I started my machining business in 2002 after 12 years of working for other shops. Because my shop is attached to my house, my overhead is very low which allows me to compete with anyone. My business grew fast, but after 3 years I decided to start designing custom Harley parts and slow down on the job shop side. I upgraded to newer equipment and started drawing. People are tired of seeing the same thing on other bikes and at a premium price to boot. Yes I ride and I take my prototypes with me most of the time. What better place to get opinions than at an event filled with avid bikers. The response I have received has been great. We now offer laser engraving and can cut most plastics. Made in USA by someone that uses what he sells.
2 things that I disagree with:
1. Over priced parts just because it is going on a Harley or other make.
2. Companies importing the parts just to make a bigger profit.
The next time you buy a part, look at the country of origin.
Kuryakyn - Import crap
Harley - Import crap
