About Jeff Nicklus Customs


In 1991 Jeff Nicklus formed a small company named Desperado Motor Racing. The original business of Desperado was the Design, Engineering and Manufacture of a High Performance Exotic Car, the Desperado F1 (see the picture in the sidebar) for street use as well as manufacture high performance race cars for a select clientele. Jeff's primary interest was in the Drag Racing Industry, however, there were a few Open Wheel Formula Cars, a couple NASCARs and an National Champion Off Shore Race Boat designed and built along the way.

As the "Car" Division was building a reputation in the world racing community Jeff was working nights building "Exotic" V-Twin Motorcycles for himself as a hobby. In 1995, after waiting for 14 months for a Harley Davidson "Fat Boy", Jeff finally had had enough and said "Screw this, I can build some of the best motorcycles in the world and it won't take over a year to do it!" at that point the "hobby" became a business and the name "Motorcycles" was added to the "Desperado Motor Racing" tag.

In less than a year the "Motorcycle" division had far outpaced the "Car" division and within two years the "Car" division was nothing more than a memory. Desperado Motor Racing & Motorcycles, Inc. quickly grew to one of the leading "Custom Production" manufacturers in the world. Today, almost 13 years later, Desperado Motorcycles are still one of the most sout after motorcycles anywhere in the world.
