Rumor has it that Cole Foster has issued an official build challenge for 2014 Kustomfest. If this is true, Kustomfest is going to be one hell of a time. Get your asses to Indonesia in October, the bike trip of a lifetime, rent some bikes in Jogja and make memories. Sun, surfing, Kustombikes, Roland Sands, Cleveland CycleWerks. This is going to be one trip to remember!

CCW is committed to not only building beautiful production bikes, but through our sister company Cleveland SpeedShop, we are building world class aftermarket custom parts, that have proven themselves time and time again, to be just that world class! CCW would like to thank SINTAX for sharing the pics and details with us. Be sure to check out the bike featured below:
Our pains, your gains. Cleveland SpeedShop put a production order through to the shop floor a little too quickly. We made, lets just say many many many Misfit Modern Exhausts in both black and brushed aluminum.
Our stupidity in production is your gain. $189 while the surplus lasts (Originally +$350). Links below:
Steve from Cleveland Motorcycles really just buttoned this project up for Brock, the heavy lifting was done by Dave:

His Sporty build below was featured in Clubhouse, and we can all agree here at Cleveland and the SpeedShop that these builds are proper!

When we hire an intern we don't have them clean the garbage or sweep the floors (well that's not all they do), they also do the heavy lifting here in the design department. Konnor is getting his feet wet working on some new Misfit designs and aftermarket parts at CCW.
We will be featuring the work of Konnor on the blog over the summer. We also have to get a little hazing in as well, so we may feature his riding lessons, that's always fun to see. Welcome to the team Konnor!
We would like to welcome Stan Lipert as our new head of engineering. To give a little background on Stan. He is a 4 time national road race champion, a seasoned technician, featured on Cafe' Racer TV, and an experienced chassis designer and engineer. A little bonus, Stan's wife is also a road racer! He brings a wealth of knowledge and passion to the team and we are happy to welcome him to the team.
Cleveland Motorcycles would like to welcome their new lead technician Steve Smith. As a former BMW A tech, and PSI Instructor, Steve brings years of knowledge and experience to the team. It is rare to find a technician with the skills and knowledge as rich as Steve possesses. We are happy to welcome Steve to the team as well.
Last but not least Cleveland would like to welcome our summer motorcycle design intern Konnor Bartels. Konnor is a transportation student at CIA and CCW's first ever design intern. We will be featuring Konnor's work from time to time on the blog. Konnor is already working on production design projects. He has come up with some great color concepts and is revamping the graphics on our modern bikes. Look for concept work to be posted in the next several weeks.
