Trek bike is a well known cycling equipment manufacturer and producer under various brand names; Trek, Electra, Bontrager, and Diamant Bikes company. The company’s history goes back to 1903, when it started manufacturing and selling what is known as the ‘Quiet Bike’. It was the very first mass produced bicycle, using steel tubing for the frame and having a hand-built motor with two speeds. The company has released over one hundred different variations of the Quiet Bike over the years.
Economic downturns and moto fads can yield a new crop of talent each year, only for those names to become forgotten by the onset of the next trend. The 38 builders in Heavy Mettle do not fall into this category, having each completed at least 20 custom builds and been in business for at least 20 years. See this one-time collection of motorcycles in the Buffalo Chip Event Center alongside photographs captured by exhibit curator and legendary motorcycle lifestyle photographer Michael Lichter over his 40-plus-year career.
