Spencer Parr - Parr Motorcycles
Parr Motorcycles has been a dream of mine ever since I purchased my first motorcycle (Sportster 883). Since then, my interest and passion were for motorcycles. I went to college for criminal justice to become a police officer. If I wasn’t in class, I was in the garage (or sometimes my parents living room) tinkering on my motorcycle. After college, I started my first real career as a police officer. Still at that time, motorcycles were a big part of my life. Fast forward five years and my whole life changed. Shortly after marrying my beautiful wife, I was diagnosed with ocular cancer that left me blind in my left eye. Still today, there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about the “C” word. Today, I work a desk job as an investigator but still build my dream bikes at night. Throughout my journey so far, I have learned a lot that led me to follow my dream. Life is short, and I want to be remembered as being a loving husband, family man and a great father. I also want to do what I love every day and showcase my skills to inspire others to pick up a wrench and create something. I was a police officer for over 5 years and learned much about discipline and hard work which directly involves my motorcycle builds. Parr motorcycles are garage built motorcycles focusing on modern performance with retro styling. Today, I operate Parr Motorcycles out of my home garage but hope one day I can get my own shop with some extra hands. This is me and I’m following my dream!
Tony Prust - Analog Cycles
I founded Analog Motorcycles in 2008 out of passion, principal, and necessity. Combining skills from my past careers and interests including audio engineering, and carpentry, I focused my interests and imagination into creating motorcycles and components that were complex in thought and design, yet simple and pure in execution just like analog music, thus the monster was born. My approach to design is simple, “lighten it up, clean it up, and fire it up”. This takes time and dedication to obtain on every build, making the planning and design phase one of the most important steps in the build process. We take the time to work with our customers to address build limitations and explore solutions to achieve excellence. I have been blessed with customers that appreciate this disciplined no-flash approach to our process. We work with all makes and models of motorcycles from BMW and BSA, to Yamaha and Zundapp. We specialize in the unloved orphans. The land of forgotten toys is our asylum, the misfits are the residents and we are the surgeons. To say that we love a challenge is an understatement. Featured in numerous magazines, aired on television, our builds have won awards in some of the most prestigious events in the world. All of these blessings are secondary only to the support I have from my customers, friends, and family urging me to never settle for anything short of my dreams. For that, I thank every one of you for supporting Analog Motorcycles.
