The Widowmaker is a collaborative project between rock legend James Hetfield of Metallica, custom bike builder Kirk Taylor of Custom Design Studios, and Custom Chrome.
When Custom Chrome approached Kirk and James about building a bike they jumped at the opportunity. The only stipulation to the project was that the bike could only be built using products offered in the Custom Chrome catalog; all other parts had to be hand fabricated by Kirk and James. The result is an awesome bike with a 1940’s
“Hill Climber” vibe that also incorporates 1920’s “Board Tracker” and 1960’s “Drag Racer” influences.
