Rick was raised on motorcycles and started riding when he was just seven years old. When he was 19 he went to work for his Great Uncle who owned a chain of paint stores called Roach Paint Company. These stores later became Glidden Paint Company. After 20 years in the paint business, and never missing a day of work, Rick was ready for a change. So he retired as the number one sales rep in the country for Glidden Paint and decided to live his dream.

Rick Fairless is truly a biker who lives to ride and he loves custom motorcycles. He has an abiding passion for all things with two wheels. For a long time, he had hoped that someone would come along and open a big time custom motorcycle shop in Dallas where he could buy cool products and parts from guys like Arlen Ness and Pat Kennedy. “Then I thought, ‘Why can’t that guy be me?’ Why couldn’t I be the guy that opens a cool custom motorcycle shop in Dallas.”
