We’re proud to announce Matt Harris of 40 Cal Customs as the second builder to be added to the growing stable of Red Kap Craftsmen. Matt Harris first burst onto the custom bike scene when he appeared on Discovery Channel’s Bike Live TV show. Harris won the show’s viewer poll, marking his introduction into the ranks of elite custom bike builders.
During California’s world-famous Born Free event, he made another strong impression when he won the first round of Hot Bike Magazine’s Speed and Style Fabrication Showdown. In the hyper-competitive Hot Bike Speed and Style Build-Off, six carefully selected builders were each given a Harley-Davidson power plant. Their mission: to build a ground-up custom motorcycle around the engine. Beyond earning the trophy for Speed and Style, Harris also took home the 2015 Firestone Award, presented by Coker Tire.
Harris was selected to be profiled in The Craftsmen series because he is a builder true to his craft, a devoted family man and a hardworking entrepreneur who is passionate about living the American dream. He hails from Alcoa, TN , located near Knoxville.
Red Kap will continue to add more Craftsmen to this program in the months ahead. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates.
