Miss Treated

Miss Treated

It’s not a chopper baby, it’s a Hubless!
For those who followed Discovery Channel’s Biker Build Off series and Billy Lane’s signature builds along the way, Miss Treated was to be a fitting homage (and more) to the bikes he had already built his reputation on, as it was to be Billy’s last installment in the television series. Styling cues were borrowed from each of his Build Off bikes, from Miss Behavin, to Down and Dirty, to Whole Lotta Rosy, to Shit Outta Luck, it’s all there if you look close enough. Of course, what makes Miss Treated bigger than gold teeth and the sum of its parts is its signature Billy Lane Hubless rear wheel. A build that is difficult to accomplish with no time frame. With only 10 days to build her, it was no wonder that Billy felt “Miss Treated” by the Discovery folks who wanted to see him not only build a hubless bike in 10 days, but then ride it 1600 miles from Chicago, IL, to Laconia, NH. With this kind of build and ride schedule, they (and their viewers) got their gold teeth and more.

The Mutant

In the early 90’s, Michel Guertin started a small business dealing in aftermarket and used parts for the big “V” engine motorcycles he so much enjoyed. Not uncommon were the fluorescent lights, pegboard covered walls or parts counter that are likely to be seen at any fine cycle store. But what was unusual was that customers had the option of actually bartering for what they needed. In fact they had the possibility to trade in old or new parts and motorcycle related products for whatever Michel may have had in stock. This new business concept not only helped out many “out of luck” riders who just wanted to get back in the wind, but also backyard mechanics who no longer needed all those parts or accessories they had been hanging onto for so long. They now had a place to wheel and deal where both (and sometimes all) parties would be happy

Raw Power Custom Cycles in Regina, Saskatchewan opened its doors on July 3, 2003 with Greg Worrall (extraordinary “ace” mechanic with twenty-one years as a Harley-trained technician), my wife Sylvia and I, Dean Bell. Soon afterwards, I lined up Brett Mucha, as parts manager. As business grew so did the staff. Brett left for Kelowna in April ’08 and was replaced by Marty Steinhubl. Now we have a current staff of seven including my wife and I as owners. From April to October being heavy service related job months, it leaves a fairly short winter to custom build bikes. With co-ordinating parts, paint, chrome and all the other details needed to build customs, sometimes spring arrives too soon. Our mechanics are constantly busy doing both the regular and custom work required during the “frozen” season and this undoubtedly makes for some stressful months.

Whiplash Customs is a modern custom bike building business based on old-fashioned, tried and true values. Founder Al Lambeth made his start in metal work as an enthusiastic high school student building his first car in shop class. The name Whiplash came from a 1967 big block Cougar that he built and showed – the name stuck and hence, Whiplash Customs evolved. Growing up with hot rods and dirt bikes, Al was a natural fit in the body shop and fabrication world so the transition from hot rods to custom motorcycles was no surprise to his friends and customers.

Al’s passion for perfection has resulted in some outstanding custom motorcycles. His first project was a 1982 Harley-Davidson FXR that had been designated a basket case. With time, patience and many hours of hard work, he turned it into a showcase multiple winner that still draws attention with its smooth lines and bold, candy-red finish. This is the one bike that Al will keep forever as a reminder of his beginnings and the deep attachment he has to the first one that “hit the road” with great success.
