The FARO bike is a statement of experience and vision. With no pre-build drawings to work from, the entire bike was conceived on the fly — and without the client having a clue as to what the final bike would look like. But given the Paul Jr. Designs team’s years of experience and professionalism, the end result left the client stunned. The FARO bike breaks away from the chopper theme and revels in handling geometry. It is sleek, long, and modern — fitting for a high-technology client like FARO.
Lamar Construction commissioned Paul Jr. Designs to build a bike to be raffled off to raise money for the March of Dimes and to raise awareness for the charity. And because the color of March of Dimes is purple, the chopper would have to be as well — except that purple is a notoriously difficult color to work with. The combination of Nub’s incredible sense for color and the smooth, sleek curves the PJD team created make this bike stunning.
In 2011, Paul Jr., Jesse James and Paul Sr. went head to head in the ultimate builder showdown. Paul Jr. chose to style the PJD bike with inspiration drawn from the classic P-51 Mustang fighter plane. Featuring a retro board tracker layout, this bike picks up cues that reflect the classic styles of WWII airplane designs. Details abound on this bike, which — through the popular vote — won the Chopper Live build-off.
The power of auctions comes to the powersports industry, and to turn the spotlight on the leading auction house for powersports, Paul Jr. Designs built them a killer bike. Who are they? CrankyApe.com, and to showcase their powerful auction website, the PJD team purchased a FatBoy on CrankyApe.com so they could do a bolt-on dresser custom to be sold for charity.
Some will remember this bike as the one that almost earned Brendon some hurt from the rest of the shop as a result of the air hammer beater he needed to make the tank. Seems it was worth the headaches, with all that effort and noise resulting in a super-sleek design reflective of the old-school board tracker layout. Following the traditional scheme, there are no big tires this time, front suspension is a leaf-spring rig, the overall feel is sparse and clean, and the even seat set-up got a special treatment!
Fingerprint Identification Systems Technology, or FIST, is a leader in identity solutions, and when it comes to high tech, there isn’t much higher you can go. The FIST Bike had to represent the high-tech nature of the FIST system and capture the drive of the people behind the company. Yet another Paul Jr. Designs winner with stunning looks and details.
