Paul Aiken of Aeromach USA creates motorcycle mirrors, lights and grips for v-twin and metric cruisers. These Aeromach products are built from aluminum bar stock, also known as billet, and are a common form of raw purified metal used by the motorcycle industry to manufacture quality metal parts and products.
Aeromach is supplying a unique tail light for a Giveaway bobber that has a retro look, like a 50’s Hot Rod.
“Just a straight looking rear light,“ beamed Aiken. He uses an LED light because it is less susceptible to vibration and moisture than a conventional light. Aiken believes it is a much cleaner and brighter product.
Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, Aiken purchased the company in 2009. The company has been in business over the past 20 years and Aiken bought it from an owner with poor health. Aiken has been around fabrication his entire life as his father was a mechanic and his uncle built motorcycles. His background is also in drag racing , and like Gary Maurer of Kustoms Inc., believes that parts must be superior since you are putting people‘s lives on the line. And , he also believes that with his products that they look good and different from others in the industry.
“A lot of factory parts or after-market stuff are of poor quality….like when a bike is going down the road and the mirror starts to vibrate and un viewable, but with a billet part that is extruded, you are left with a lighter material and optics that are incredibly sharp and reduce mirror vibration by as much as 40%, “ stated Aiken.
As for the Bikernet/Cycle Source 15th Anniversary Giveaway Chopper, sponsored by XPress lid, this will be only the second time this light has been produced and it is made with real glass, not plastic.
“The main thing we want people to know is that our product is quality and still made in the USA,” said Aiken with pride.
Aeromach USA believes in craftsmanship, design and the pursuit of world-class perfection. That is why Aeromach products utilize the highest quality components. Whether the finish is natural, polished, chromed or anodized, every part and accessory is flawless. Aeromach parts are available at your dealer or online at www.aeromachmfg.com.
