Recognizing the growing demand for customizing metric motorcycles exceeded the availability of the products or services needed to create these custom wonders motivated “Baron” to push the envelope of customizing by creating kits which allow individual owners to create their own extreme custom bikes without welding, fabricating or technical skills. This concept fulfilled consumer needs while at the same time allowing them to gain pride and recognition garnered from building their own custom motorcycle.
