Roger and his wife Emily spontaneously joined us for a one day photo shoot for the new Uhl Works apparel catalog (, adding a great vibe and fun to the day. They looked incredible and very natural wearing the new Uhl Works t-shirt designs.

Roger is recognized in the bike world as one of the best custom bike designer. Roger has built a number of incredible bikes and has always had a very creative and artistic approach. In 1984, he bought his first Harley – a 1984 Softail custom. He stripped it down to the frame, raked it, chromed it, painted it, etc. until it wasn’t even recognizable. Roger had many more “project bikes”, and in 1991 built the first Harley type custom bike to run a 170-17 rear tire. Roger pretty much decided at that point that there was nothing he hadn’t done to a stock Harley frame, and in 1992 began designing and building his own style and brand of motorcycle frames. He also invested in a CNC Mill and small lathe and started building his own billet components to go along with the frames.

People went wild when they saw Roger’s frames, and it was soon obvious that Roger’s hobby could turn into a full blown career. Roger’s creativity and design genius have produced many different styles of frames, parts and unbelievable motorcycles over the years including Roger’s signature design, BBW’s oil-in frame/drop seat style chassis which marked a revolutionary change in the style of custom motorcycles being offered to the general public. The designs were so unique that Roger Bourget obtained a U.S. Patent for it.

Roger is much respected in the industry, and his name is a trademark for high quality, performance oriented, uniquely styled motorcycles. We were very excited and thankful to have Roger and Emily part of our photo shoot project for Uhl Works.
