On a daily basis Lowbrow works with men and women in the manufacturing trades who work the same way we do. Companies all over America and world-wide who take pride in what they do and strive to do the best work possible. We want to help support USA-made products, as companies all over are looking for skilled workers across all fields of manufacturing. Cuyahoga Community College (also known as Tri-C) is our local college in Cleveland, Ohio. Tri-C offers training to get people into these high-demand, well-paid jobs. We want to support northeast Ohio, but more than that, we want to help support and create companies that we can work with in the future.
Lowbrow Customs chose to partner with Tri-C and offer two $2,500 scholarships per year for students pursuing workforce training opportunities. It doesn’t have to take four years to get a college degree and have a career, many of these programs are ten to eighteen weeks.
Joe Koenigsmark of Jerry's House of Kolors & Angel Dust Cycle Paint, has been painting hot rods and motorcycles in North East Ohio for over 34 years. Full of laughter, passion and talent Joe Koenigsmark is not only an artist but a staple in the Midwest when it comes to the custom car and motorcycle scene. A long time friend of Lowbrow Customs and painter of most of the bikes we have in the shop. We thought it would be a good idea to sit down with Joe, put a couple cameras in front of his face and ask him some hard hitting questions. From his dad and brother's influence to "whoa check out that 80's paint", to the Tiki Guy everyone has grown to love. This interview takes you on a little deeper journey into Joe's life.

Coming to a motorcycle event near you, there may be a weirdo lurking around, and ready to party!
A few months back Tyler unveiled our new Weirdo mascot head to the Lowbrow Customs Team at our holiday party. The possibilities are endless and the fun is just about to begin. The Weirdo is real, forever and always, long live The Weirdo!
This is the full, uncut interview with Fritz Kott during the filming of The Salt Ghost: Return of the Nitro Express film in 2011. Never before seen in it's entirety, Fritz talks about his racing at Bonneville Speed Week starting in 1971, how things were versus how they are now, and his work on his own motorcycles as well as with Theo Ozen, builder of the Salt Ghost. Wes White of Four Aces Cycle and Tyler Malinky of Lowbrow Customs interviewed Fritz during their research to find out who originally built and raced the vintage Triumph. Bonneville Salt Flats, El Mirage, nitro-burning and turbo charged vintage Triumph motorcycles, fast Harley-Davidsons, it is all discussed in this conversation that we are happy to be able to share. The Salt Ghost motorcycle currently resides at the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa. You can find the full Salt Ghost film on DVD here:
Everyone has been asking how our new Lowbrow Customs 2 into 1 SuperMeg Exhaust Pipes by Kerker sound. We put a set on a 2006 Sportster and recorded a little of the sound just for you, enjoy! Oh and Todd is bringing back "Not" jokes...
DISCLAIMER: NOT LEGAL FOR SALE OR USE IN CALIFORNIA
Lowbrow Customs has teamed up with Kerker to bring you an affordable, USA-made, high-performance, 2 into 1 exhaust system for your Harley-Davidson. Our goal was to create an exhaust system we would want to run on our bikes, stripped of all the superfluous covers and branding. We continuously find ourselves drawn to performance race vehicles. Form follows function, and the 2 into 1 SuperMeg is all business. Available in everyone's favorite color, black, this expertly crafted exhaust is available for Harley-Davidson Sportster, Dyna and Softail model motorcycles.
The 2 into 1 SuperMeg features a full-flow mechanical core for a deep throaty sound and excellent top end performance. You’ll feel the power curve shift to the top end, providing high RPM power. A 2.5” non-baffle, mechanical core provides a deep, bottomless rumble. The core and packing are rebuildable for minimum maintenance. A uniquely designed mounting bracket makes this system a breeze to install, and all of our 2 into 1 SuperMegs will work with your OEM foot controls. Made in the USA. Todd's also bringing back "Not" jokes...
