Speed Trix, builder of Carpidiem
We would never have believed that our family dream would have taken
on such magnitude after 10 years (already). Located in a small town
named St-André d’Argenteuil that is bordered by a beautiful river, two brothers
– whose gift for originality along with a high level of attention to detail (which has become
their trademark) – opened their shop called Speed Trix. Thanks to word of mouth,
they soon outgrew their workplace and were forced to move into larger facilities and to
acquire new modern equipment to accommodate their growing popularity. A large showroom
exhibits accessories, clothing, all types of bike apparel, jewelry along with the vast
well-equipped shop is sure to satisfy their clientele.
Christian Travert, builder of The V-REX
After spending weeks carefully studying the
images of the design of the V-REX, Christian
Travert stumbled onto it on the World Wide Web,
rendered by world famous Tim Cameron motorcycle
3D designer.He knew it was a big enough
challenge and decided he must build it and bring it
on the streets of America. Christian’s background
speaks for itself. As an engineering genius and
bike builder extraordinaire based in Florida, he
has already achieved the near impossible by being
responsible for the engineering and building of the
outrageous 250mph ‘Y2K’ jet turbine-powered
bike – still regarded as the fastest, street legal,
production motorcycle in the world. He has also
built the “Daytona Boss” also powered by a jet
engine, which was ordered by the largest Harley
Davidson dealer/owner, Mr. Bruce Rossmeyer.
Something struck Christian about the futuristic design
and he found himself beginning to apply his
engineering know-how to some of the problems
posed by the design. If anyone possessed the talent to
bring this outrageous new design alive, it was this man.
The Blower Bike
Keith Armstrong, builder of The Blower Bike
Mid 1970s A&A Performance opened its doors in Hamilton, Ontario. At the time the
owner, Jerry Armstrong, raced a 1967 RSSS Big Block Camaro C Cayuga drag
strip. Jerry opened A&A Performance, a high performance shop and fab shop.
In 1980 Jerry moved his family from Hamilton to Victoria in B.C. A&A opened up
approximately one year later, mainly as a fab shop. The shop worked on many
different projects from drag cars, sand drag cars 4x4’s and any general metal
I am Keith Armstrong born in 1970. My first memories are made of drag cars,
motorcycles, cragar mags and the smell of burnt rubber. After we moved to Victoria,
I raced BMX and was the first and youngest rider to make it over the MT Doug hill
climb on an 80cc dirt bike, which was in Canadian Biker in 1982.
Kreator, builder of The Voodoo
Voodoo is a derivative of the world’s oldest known religions,
which have been around in Africa since the beginning
of human civilization. Within the voodoo society, there
are no accidents. Practitioners believe that nothing
and no event has a life of its own without a “Kreater.”
The universe is all one.
Scientists know that. Nature knows it. George Tchor
of Kreater Custom Motorcycles in Toronto, Ontario
knows it. And it is only befitting that the bike you are
looking at is named Voodoo.
Whilst sharing a Corona one late Friday evening after
a night of wrenching, I ask Mr. Tchor to tell me about
the magnificent Kreation – that is the Voodoo sitting
in his showroom – that bespeaks of barbaric, primitive,
and sexually licentious tone with its ever presence.
