Andy Harris Custom CyclesMy name is Andy Harris and with my wife Karen, we run the AH Custom Cycles. If you have been to any of the major motorcycle events, most likely you met either myself or my Wife Cassandra.

Andy has been with his GXR stateside in various rallies over the last few years so there is a good choice that we’ve already met.

If not, I’d like to take just a moment to tell you a little about our store, our commitment to you – the motorcyclist – and acquaint you with the many fine lines of motorcycle accessories that we carry in stock or can order and have shipped to you usually within 24 hours.

Also we are not just a husband wife duo who fell into motorcycling. We are super hardcore into this stuff. In fact, Andy just finished taking advanced math courses from a famous tutor to take his CNC game to the next level. Yes we make our own custom parts as well.

We have a full research and development centre where graduates from MIT have apprentices who have studied in one of the best math universities in the world help us develop the best cycles.

In fact our research and development department has been supported by NASA, Boston and many other places. We have math engineers who have even taken part in creating complex music algorithms for Bose and Sony.

So I guess it’s fair to say, our engineers are smart and creative.

Whether you live in the United States or are a Goldwinger from Europe, Asia or Australia – we can get you the parts or accessories you need at a price you can afford.

We also offer courses on riding, engineering (Calculus 2 is a prerequisite here) your own bike and more.
