Mad Jap Kustoms & Afterdark Motorcycles: My Two Canadian Friends

November 27, 2013

Just a quick shoutout to my two Canadian friends who have always befriended ANVIL and taught me (over the years) what it means to be a part of a brotherhood within this motorcycle business industry.  Although I'm no motorcycle builder, like these two mentioned in this post, they have both supported ANVIL with their purchases as well as their kind and gracious words about ANVIL, and I thank them for that.  So, it is with great confidence that I refer all who are reading this blog post to their respective websites to learn more about the each of them.  If you are in Canada and don't know much about them, I assure you hand downs, they are the best at what they do!  Everything they do, they do it with utmost pride!  I believe the final product, and how their respective customer will feel about it.  Please frequent their websites and if you're in their area, frequent their shops!

April 13, 2018

As many of you know, the chopper seat is one of the fundamental reasons Anvil Customs' story began. We've been blessed with the chance to make some truly righteous bike seats over the years. That being said, this solo spring chopper is absolutely, hands down one of the best pans we've ever put together. The genuine alligator belly has some really great lines. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out. The antique wine color finish gives the seat a beautiful warm reddish hue and I ca...

Today is opening day for Major League Baseball 2018. Are you hype? We certainly are. Obviously we root for our home team—The STL Cards around here but, honestly we're always happy with a good game. Here's some thoughts we've had around the shop.

ALSO! We actually still have a couple of these rad Yankees/Dodgers wallets that we tooled awhile back so you can support your team all season long! If you're interested, give them a peek!
