    Meet Max Hazan. Working at a successful but unrewarding career in design Max decided to pursue what he loved, building one off custom motorcycles unlike anything else out there. Roughly one year into this new life Max reflects on his start, his design process, the bike he just finished...a Royal Enfield modeled on old Italian Speedboats and the one nearing completion... a Harley Ironhead that measures in at eight feet long and three hundred pounds.

    Sometimes you just have to follow your dreams...
