When I received an email from Luke Cormack and Jackson, 2 lads from England, it made me happy. Not only because of the the photos of the bike they just built, but for their accompanying words. They opened their custom shop in January 2016 and are not afraid to describe themselves as young, dumb and full of something…living their life with a simple motto: “If you can’t buy it, you’ve gotta build it yourself”. True if you are low in Green or don’t like what is mass-produced.
Cormack and Jackson work out of an old run down stable with enough room for all the important things in life; such as a spray booth, a tool bench and a bar with enough room to host a party. Bristol Bobbers exist to bring fresh, lesser aged faces to the UK custom bike scene. Using materials and tools that were begged and borrowed, they slowly built a great reputation among their friends by building custom bikes on an affordable budget without compromising on style and finish.
aim to kickstart a younger generation of custom bike builders, showing the old boys that the custom scene is still alive and kicking. For this reason they well deserve this short feature.
