Shaw Speed & Custom was created in 2009 and after many years of customising Harley-Davidsons, the company decided that the way forward was to take the customisation process and their experience to another level. A level of excellence that should not only meet client’s expectations but also exceeds them. Shaw Speed & Custom wants to build the best custom Harley-Davidson Motorcycles in the world and makes the process an enjoyable experience for both the team and the customer.
Shaw Speed wanted an independent studio where its clients could meet with the team and discuss projects. They created the Speed Shop, which overlooks the technical area and benches. Having the studio and technical area so close means there is constant inspiration for the team and its customers.
The team lead by Team Principal Steven C Willis have an abundance of two wheeled experience and this can be seen influencing many of the custom motorcycles that have been built.
This experienced service has lead to many international builds and collaborative projects with the likes of Bell & Ross, Ralph Lauren and Gibson guitars. Shaw’s accolades in the custom motorcycle arena include a World Championship win in the AMD Modified Harley-Davidson category in 2010. At this event in the past the Team have also picked up 3rd, 4th, and 5th place.
"Rideable Customs" is the team’s strapline and is something they always strive for on every build. The bike needs to be fit for their original purpose, riding.
