GARY AND CHERI

Gary Franklin - Steelhead Custom CyclesI started riding young like most on dirt bikes,and also riding on the back of my step dads Honda Goldwing. I knew that’s where I wanted to be IN THE WIND. Then one day when I was about twelve a pack of Harleys went riding down the highway across from our house and I immediately knew that’s where it really was at. After many of years of wrong turns and having to sell parts I collected to get  by, I met my wife and got the right push I needed to achieve my lifelong  dream of living the life of eating, breathing, obsessing, riding, fixing and customizing Harley Davidsons.  After graduating MMI with honors and perfect attendance I worked for other shops and manufacturers. I finally found a good shop owner and was at home.  A few years went buy and he decided to call it closed, and I decided call it open. With his help and my wife’s support I bought everything I needed from him and opened Steelhead Custom Cycles. We  are going on our fifth year and I am grateful I get to do what I love everyday of my life. We appreciate the support of our customers, and the biker community in our area!! Without them we wouldn’t have the opportunity to continue to grow and thrive.
