About Us

Billy Favata, has been building vintage bikes from the frame up for the last 22 years.

Born in Plymouth, in the U.K. , his first frame up build was a 1960 B33 B.S.A. Cafe Racer. Which, at the time, was his only form of transportation , and subsequently got ridden ( literally ) the length and breadth of the country.

From '92 on he has been living in the U.S. , and has continued to build custom rides that can be used on a daily basis.
As for his everyday vehicles ? One is in the form of a '53 Chevy Pick-up , and another is a '73 Shovelhead Harley. You can visit his Chicago shop, but by appointment only, so drop him an e-mail or call first.
