Custom Cycle Studio LLC

Motorcycle Service & Repair



Founded by John Owings, in 1982, Custom Cycle Studio has brought decades of skill and expertise to thousands of custom original bike paint jobs and restorations. John spent much of his early study in art, a Degree graduate at the Maryland College of Art and Design, and also in mechanical trade schools and on the job. Building motorcycle, race engines, developing turbo technology, working as a lead technician and Fully ASE certified, John has also served Virginia as an Emissions Compliance officer, State Inspector and State Emissions Inspector for over 17 years of his career. Very few shops offer this kind of full service background and ability, from crankshaft to clear coat and deliver it with a full one year limited warranty. We are located in Hamilton VA, in the best riding area with roads going through the tri-state area. We can ship anywhere for those who need, and also pick up and deliver your bike. Custom Cycle Studio has stood the test of time, lasting decades longer than most bike shops. Our goal is customer satisfaction, American Craftsmanship and quality work.
