Since opening his Georgia custom shop in May, Ryan Cobb has had a few strange requests – including pinstriping a toilet seat – but his passion is for motorcycles.
"There are just endless possibilities with bikes," he told the Rockdale Citizen. "You go to Harley Davidson and buy a Road King, it doesn't look like that. I like the fact that you can take something that everybody has and make it your own."
That vision, born years ago when Cobb accompanied a college friend to a shop where the friend’s bike was being painted, has helped Twin Pistons Customs in Lawrenceville, to carve out a niche.
The shop was called Wicked Ways, and Cobb ended up working there for 12 years, then at Killer Creek Harley-Davidson in Alpharetta before striking out on his own.
"I'm probably known for flames and my airbrush skills," Cobb says. "My overall style, everything's real ... I wouldn't say hardcore because to me hardcore is motorcycles that are kind of Frankenstein bikes, kind of rough. It's a hardcore style but it's definitely made to ride."
