    Donnie Smith Show March 26th & 27th St. Paul, MN

    Honored to have had the opportunity to build the 2022 Catalog Cover Bike for Drag Specialties, the largest aftermarket parts distributor in the world! This catalog can be seen in shops all over the world. The ultimate goal was to build them a bike using all the parts available in their catalog and still make it look like a 100% ground up custom build – that goal was achieved. The bike will be on tour with Drag for 2022 at all their events and showcases and I will have it back in 8-9 months.
    Hard part was keeping this a secret and not being able to post anything about it, pics, progress, etc….. but it’s a great way to start 2022.
    Special thanks to all that helped make this possible, Tom Motzko, Rob Bluma, Nick Zander, the entire Drag Specialty staff and crew. Jason at Artistimo for the amazing paint (which doesn’t even show true color in these pics), and J&J powdercoating for always providing the best quality and service.
    The bike has to be seen in person to appreciate all the details, new parts for 2022, the Voodoo blue color, the list goes on…..the bike will be for sale once they are complete with all their events and already have some serious interest in just a day online!


    Honored to be chosen as Hotbike Magazine’s Best Bagger Builder of 2016! It is quite an accomplishment among the 1000’s of people doing this now, thanks again to my family, friends, and customers for their continued support and push to excel.

    We had another record year and the shop is busier than ever. I appreciate your patience with emails and phone calls as show season approaches everyone wants their bike done!   Hopefully you come out to see us at the upcoming shows to see some of the newest creations.

    2014 Chicago World of Wheels proved to be a great success for DD Custom. We took home five 1st place and two 2nd place awards in Class Competition on Saturday night. Sunday night awards proved to be even better! Warren’s new 26″ Purple bobber (coming soon to gallery) won Best Rigid in the Show, and Herb’s 30″ White Night Road Glide took home Best Touring in the show as well the highest honor of Grand Champion or Best in Show! This marks the 3rd Grand Champion Award for Dave in 4 years.  Thank you for all your support and continued influence on the bikes I build – next stop – Donnie Smith!
