Meet Custom Bike Build Off Builder hailing from Colorado, Arlin Fatland
Arlin owns and operates one of the few original independent motorcycle shops that have held firm to their traditions over the decades—52 years in the same location in Denver Colorado.
A custom and chopper builder since the 1970, Arlin’s bikes have been featured regularly in magazines in the USA and Europe and his shop is still the undisputed go to location for owners of classic HD models.
The most remarkable accomplishment to be noted is staying power. Many have abandoned motorcycling when overnight fame or money failed to materialize; people like Arlin Fatland sought none of that, instead of participation in an industry that is also his
He has been attending Daytona and Sturgis every year since the early 1970s . Arlin has provided material support for charitable efforts industry-wide. He is also a member of the Custom Bike Builders Hamsters.
They call it the biker candy store, est 1970.
The Strider Custom Bike Program was developed in partnership with @FlyingPistonBenefits, which invites notable motorcycle builders to customize a genuine Strider Bike. Each Strider Custom Bike will be auctioned off to support All Kids Bike®, a campaign to get Learn-To-Ride Programs into every public elementary school kindergarten PE class to teach children how to ride a bike for free.
