At Hawgzotic Custom Cycles in Langley, BC, Tom Varga and his team have a simple motto: “You dream it, we build it.” Hawgzotic has been producing show winning motorcycles for 13 years. “The bikes we build are one-of-a-kind, built to our customers’ preferences. Together, with your specifications and our expertise, we can build you the one-of-a-kind bike of your dreams.”
Tom, along with his employees Stuart, Phil and Waylon are intent to remain on the cutting edge of trends. In order to give their custom bikes that personal touch, they have their own line of manufactured products, sheet metal and wheels.
When the owner of the “train bike” had a vision of how his bike should look, Hawgzotic was who he wanted doing the job. Obviously a fan of trains, he envisioned his bike should reflect his passion. “This bike started out as a stock Heritage Softail and we stripped it down and dressed it up.”
The sheet metal has been cleaned up and modified. Using historic pictures as guidelines, Troy of Hogs N’ Rods based the paint scheme on Canadian Pacific Railway’s famous Royal Hudson steam train. Hawgzotic made some very unique custom billet turn signals that resemble train crossing posts. They also styled a pair of their own wheels, similar to what the Royal Hudson may have rolled on, to keep the theme going. The wheel area is kept clean, devoid of big rotors and calipers, by using a 360 brake system front and back. After 3-months of fabrication and paint time, the train was rollin’ down the road.
Another build Tom and his crew are very pleased with is The Black Beast. “This bike is unique just by the sheer size of it! It takes a big man to hang on and fit this bike!” A Rolling Thunder 8″ forward and 10″ up frame and an American Suspension Springer with 18″ over stock put the big beast at a massive 10′ 6″ length. A 330 Hawgzotic rear wheel and a 23″ Hawgzotic front wheel add to the bike’s big presence. The sheet metal was hand fabricated in-house including a massive 18″ wide, 29″ long gas tank, and numerous other custom-made miscellaneous parts. Finishing off this big and powerful brute is an Ultima 140 ci power plant.
Troy of Hogs N’ Rods also painted the Beast. “The overall theme of the bike was created with our customer as well as in-house decisions. Changes to it were made along the way to suit our customer’s interpretations, this build took approximately 10-months to complete with modifying the ideas and theme.”
“We stay tuned to trends and develop projects with our customers. Our company stands by its quality bikes and products, while keeping our customers tastes in mind.”
