Located in Brandon, Manitoba, Cycle Boyz is a full custom
motorcycle fab and repair shop that was founded
by two brothers, Derek, a licensed Harley-Davidson
technician, and Brent, a fabricator of all things steel.
Cycle Boyz is truly a one-stop motorcycle shop. Whether
your Twin-cam needs more grunt or your current project
needs a one-off fuel tank or tooled leather seat, the Boyz
can get it done ! “This is not a hobby or a job to us; it is
an addiction and a true passion”.
Deathtrap is a bike that a buddy of the Boyz had taken
in on trade as a rolling project in a Hot-Rod swap/deal.
The buddy ended up moving to Burbank, California and
asked if Cycle Boyz would finish the bike for him. What
seemed like a simple task turned into a full blown build.

The LLMC 78 is a project that brought me back to my earliest memories
of snowboarding – a feeling of freedom and individuality that was found
in the early years of snowboarding and skateboarding.
When Phil of Roquechop Design and I worked on my first bike it was
just to make some changes to it; nothing crazy. Then I developed a much
more critical eye and because of the way I am, I wanted to push my
passion further with my tastes and influences : 4Q, Love Cycle, Pangea
Speed, Eighty Six Channel and of course, Roquechop Design. So with
Phil’s help we developed the vision and attitude for 78. I wanted a bike
that was very minimalist and very “tight”. Phil wanted a bike that would be
on the edge both aesthetically and mechanically. We wanted a machine
that would run and not just be a showroom queen.
Vaya Con Dios
By Brian Murray
Vaya con Dios came
to fruition as a result
of meeting Jason Glatt
of Suicidal Cycles Inc.
when he came to look
at some new spoke motorcycle
rims I had for sale. I
told Jason that I was itching to build
another chop and would be interested in a one-off
frame. Jason said he was interested in purchasing the
rims I had for sale and that he could build me any frame
style I desired. So with that said we decided to trade
the motorcycle rims value towards the cost of a rigid
Over the next several months I would stop by Jason’s
shop now and then to check out his various builds all
the while putting
together in my head
and on paper what frame
design I would like built. By
this time I had decided that Vaya
con Dios would be a true one-off custom
chopper in every aspect – not your typical

Like every year the Revolution Magazine team makes it a point to travel the country to visit our friends
and partners who work in the V-twin world. This also allows us to follow the evolution of this fantastic
industry. Last fall was no exception. We visited our fellow bike builders in British Columbia, those of
whom we know as being extremely creative.
It was during one of our runs through the fantastic landscapes of Western Canada
that we made an impressionable encounter. Now you’re probably thinking
a giant elk or a herd of sheep common on the roads out there
or worse, a ferocious grizzly bear but this wasn’t the case.
This remarkable meeting had nothing to do with the
natural beauty of this region but more so with
an impressive machine called “Rediculous”. A
custom motorcycle created by Cherry Customs.
This encounter struck us like a lightning rod; we
absolutely had to share with you the discovery
of this new bike.
