Yard Ratz started as a hobby. Myself and Matt met through mutual friends. Growing up we were always getting stuck working on some type project or side gig at Matt's dads construction yard. From there we ended up working at a body shop together where we started to get into the motorcycle world. We built our first bikes which we still own to this day on a home made frame table. Matt and I thought our selves how to run a lathe and mill his dad happen to have. From there we got our first shop which we had for about 4 years till we moved into our current shop. We now share along side our also talented friends Steve Kay and Chris Leduke. It has been an amazing ride In the motorcycle fabrication world. From 2 kids with a motorcycle permit and no real machining and fabrication schooling, to having many of our creations featured in magazines, winning shows, and even being invited to the Javits Center. We have met some of the greatest and most talented people on the way. As a group we look forward to pushing our talents only further as time goes on and enjoy our motorcycle community.
The white bike was Matt Paris at Yard Ratz project he tackled for good client of ours Frank Epifania Jr.
