Custom Chrome Europe 50TH Anniversary Bike

The year 2020 has just begun – and the Custom Chrome Europe team is back “on the road” with new parts and bikes. We support them with it and build the jubilee bike for the 50th anniversary of Custom Chrome Europe. The now 50-year history of Custom Chrome began in 1970 in a motorcycle shop behind a double garage in San Jose, California. Four friends noticed that more and more people wanted to personalize their motorcycles and opened a motorcycle accessories shop specializing in chrome plating and polishing everything brought in by the customers. With this, Coast Cycles was born in a sales room adjacent to the garage.

Within a year Coast Cycles changed its name to Custom Chrome Inc. (CCI) and began searching for manufacturers of custom parts and accessories and working with them on unique new items built to the company’s specifications. Soon motorcycle dealers across the country discovered the growing line of Custom Chrome® and the company quickly grew into an international manufacturer and wholesaler of aftermarket products for Harley-Davidson® motorcycles.

In 2009 Custom Chrome Europe started the first Bolt-On Bike projects and Thunderbike were also involved with our first Fat Boy in 2011. Today we look back on a total of 9 collaborative projects. This close cooperation is also reflected in the Thunderbike Shop, where the complete H-D range of Custom Chrome is available for end customers.

Congratulations from us on the 50th birthday.
