Retro Motorcycle Work of Art
As the saying goes, some like it hot. And Windsor, Ontario-based Tough Customs’ Rick Tomicic keeps the creative fires burning through those interminable Canadian winters. In 32 years of building drag bikes, racers and customs-including working with MotoGP World Champion Kevin Schwantz-Tomicic knows that the way to stoke the fire is to constantly raise his game. "I don’t like doing things the easy way," he chuckles.
"Life is a highway, I want to ride it all night long," declares Canadian rocker Tom Cochrane in his unapologetic, and timeless, anthem to windblown individualism. That spirit emanates from Windsor, Ontario’s Tough Customs, and its current contender, the succinctly christened "Tough Gun". Looking like Detroit muscle car morphed into motorbike, this one-off pro-street custom is equally unapologetic, as is the company’s founder, Rick Tomicic.
