Awesome Aluminum Body Work

Hi Cyril, ‘I’ve been reading your blog for quite some time now. I really enjoy seeing the new parts that are becoming available because I love motorcycles. But after seeing the Ferrari concept, I felt it was time to show you mine. I design, fabricate and finish my bikes myself. My bikes are based around Japanese sportbike engines. BUT, the only thing that I use from a sport bike is the engine.. nothing else. I make my own frames, swingarms, suspensions, handlebars, Stainless Steel exhausts, the list goes on and on.  Every piece of body work is ALUMINUM hand pounded and smoothed by me. I have so many people ask me who did the “fiber glass”… Although I take it as a compliment since people seem to find it nearly impossible to get metal to look as if it was poured from a mold…. I must admit it does irritate me a little because of the countless hours that I spend pounding out an smoothing my ALUMINUM body work. So I’ve attached a few pics of the latest build… RAW and finished. This particular build is featured in the Robb Report Motorcycling Mag (oct/nov) issue out on newsstands now. P.S. There’s more of my concepts  on my website Ramsom Motorsports LLC”. Sincerely, Wayne Ransom,

    Wayne, Great craftsmanship!! You’ve mastered an art that has been almost lost over the years.

    Good luck with your business.

    And just to think some master buiders become rich and famous for pounding out a tank and fender.
    A nice eye appealing twist making the compound curves draw your attention to the beauty of the beast.

    Very Cool! any specs?

    glad to see subdued paint!

    most the Euro fighters/US extended swingarm bikes are mucked up with garish paint, cartoons, & tribal graphics.

    nice work.

    Extremely sweet bike. I can only imagine what you go through doing this to something non Harley based. All original thinking and nothing out of the box. I’ve been watching what Jim at Aft Customs has been doing over the last few years and it’s no easy task for you guys. Congratulations and I wish you the very best.

    I’d love to shoot one of your bikes for the Calendars. Nice Work! The only question is….would it go in the fast Dates Racebike Calendar or the iron & Lace Custom Bike Calendar, or BOTH? 🙂

    I hope you will bring your bikes to the 2009 LA Calendar Motorcycle Show Weekend July 18-19th next year for display, entering in the Calendar 8ike Building Championship and for me to shoot for the Calendars.

    You might want to also consider doing a custom metric sportbike which is still uniquely your own, but does not sacrafice the good handling charactistics and performance of a sportbike. There is a huge market for this among the thousands weathy sportbike enthusiast who have no problem spending $70 for a limited edition MV Agusta or Ducati Desmosedici.

    Best regards,
    Jim Gianatsis, Director & Photographer

    Ransom has unmatched talent! A True Perfectionist. everything he builds on these bikes are simply amazing and innovative..Even the welds look like artwork. Pictures Do these Bikes no Justice. Keep up the good work Buddy!
