"Bringing Josh Allison's ideas to life is a constant challenge since metal is resistant to shaping and manipulation. However, with perseverance and hard work, ideas can become reality. The Disciple bike is a reflection of Josh's career and life, and exemplifies the values and capabilities of American Metal Customs. It also provides a glimpse into the direction we are heading. Enjoy!"- American Metal Customs
