IRONe Builder Evan Favaro
Evan Favaro, the owner, operator, designer and builder of Speakeasy Motors, has achieved a lot…
It all started when he was 12 years old, building small displacement 2 stroke race motors from scratch for himself and his friends to race around town with. But he didn’t stop there.
Evan also pursued metal fabrication, learning from the masters of the craft and applying practiced techniques in concert with his innate eye for line and form. Best-in-Show awards started piling up, along with a gig on a high-profile TV show. Evan opened Speakeasy Motors in April of 2011 and that’s where he builds the next generation of custom motorcycles and hot rods.
When the opportunity came along to customize a little IRONe bike for the Flying Piston Benefit, Evan readily agreed to participate.
