BRIAN KLOCK, President/Owner, firstname.lastname@example.org, ext. 110 - comes from a small rural community of 389 people in Eastern South Dakota. His first home was located in the upstairs of his parents' gas station so one might think that he was destined to be in this field of work. Influenced by his father's love of cars and motorcycles at an early age, he became fascinated with hot rod cars and kustom bikes.
After building his first FXR in 1990 and achieving award-winning status, he was called upon by his friends to lend his imaginative eye to their creations. In 1997 Brian decided to take the plunge into entreprenuership and opened Klock Werks in its first location in a mentor's garage. By 1999 Dan Cheeseman came straight out of a local university to join Brian in his design efforts. For the next 5 years, they proceeded to take their talents to the streets from a 700 square foot garage without even a sign. Their creativity was recognized and Klock Werks was, and consistently continues to be, featured in numerous national and international magazines. Relying on word of mouth and a strong underground following, they remained one of Mitchell, South Dakota's best kept secrets until the crew decided they had done enough to dispel the myth that a business with no sign is a sign of no business. Klock Werks now has 17 employees and designs from a 7000 square foot facility in the heart of Mitchell.
Brian has become known as one of the country's most diverse builders. He states that it comes from serving a small population with varied tastes and a need to customize anything that comes along. The team at Klock Werks prides themselves on not only building great one-off choppers, but also baggers, sportsters, bobbers, the "newstalgia" buzz they have created with their vintage style Twin Cam bikes, and a complete line of parts available for you to kustomize your own ride. Klock Werks bikes and parts are Kustom by Design, readily identifiable by their fine detail and innovative interpretation of theme.
