Welcome to Shadetree Fabrications

You sit in your garage and stare at it…your wife/girlfriend hates it….your buddies want it….it’s what you’re thinking about when your boss thinks you are working sitting at your desk in deep thought….It’s a passion!

It’s what I have for these cantankerous, leaky, shiny and slightly less than perfect in anyone else’s eyes motorcycles. If we are on the same page you have found the right site. I work on them till I hate them just like you. That is until she fires and I hear that sweet sound and take her down the road!

They aren’t transportation they are elevation. Elevation above the schmoe sitting next to you in his SUV thinking he has it made!

Look at the bikes. Like em’ or don’t, if you do, give me a shout and we’ll build that bike you dream about!

Kyle Atlanta

Our latest build “Speedmetal” came to us from a good friend, Bill McNabney.  He had this Saxon bike for a few years and was ready to give it a completely different look.  He brought it to us mid-summer and Kyle went to work!   He salvaged the motor, tranny, wheels and brakes…but everything else had to go!  Kyle built the frame, gas tanks, oil tank, handlebars, front end…let’s just say pretty much everything you are looking at was built by Kyle.  He spent a lot of time and paid great attention to detail…the entire bike is hand brushed…that alone took several days and hours!  We pretty much handed a brush to anyone that walked into the shop to help us out… So thanks to everyone that helped!

To date…this bike has taken 1st Place at the J&P Ultimate Builders shows Freestyle class in Atlanta, GA and in Dallas, TX as well as Editors Choice from Ironworks Magazine!  Speedmetal will be featured in the March 2013 issue.

Kyle really let his creativity flow with this one.  It’s definitely not a typical Shadetree bike, but once and a while you gotta do something that leave people scratchin’ their heads..
