- About Us
What Deadbeat Customs is all about:
There comes a time when everyone gets their driver’s license, and guys like me know the motorcycle thing just sort of happens. Your friend buys one, you buy one, and soon enough all of your friends are riding bikes. It just kind of takes over. Instead of shredding the local skate spot with your buds, you’re hitting the pavement with the same guys and putting miles on your motorcycles. Before you know it you’re swapping out handlebars and customizing that bike to make it your own.
At Deadbeat Customs we’re about grassroots motorcycle riders, who take it upon themselves to customize their bike. A certain pride comes with making a bike your own; you created or customized it for you, and nobody else.
How we started:
Getting into the motorcycle scene was an easy transition for Steve Bramanti, owner of Deadbeat Customs, who spent his teenage years skateboarding and riding dirt bikes with friends in the outskirts of Boston.
Steve has worked in the motorcycle industry since 2005, when he attended MMI (Motorcycle Mechanic Institute) and later got a job as a Harley Davidson Technician. He now does what he likes best which is supporting the guys he can relate to and not some Las Vegas–on-wheels, land-cruiser-driving dentist that gets his oil changed at the local dealership.
" I currently ride a 2007 Superglide, but if you follow me on Instagram you’ll see I’m working on it as much as I’m riding it. All of my friends ride, and we all work on our own bikes, " says Steve.
