The Finch Collection
Ron Finch’s Personal Bikes

Kaleidocycle Trilogy Aorta Loop Hole Outspoken Wing and a Prayer

All motorcycles featured in this collection exhibit both hand-built custom frames and
custom rodwork. Virtually every aspect of these bikes incorporates Ron’s unique
construction and artistic flair, from one-of-a-kind front ends, fenders, and side panels
to the exhaust systems. Beyond his gift for distinctive engineering, Ron’s true genius
lies in his mastery of paint work, which has become world renowned for its ingenuity,
creativity and excellence. This fusion of unique design, brilliant painting and
exceptional functionality has helped to establish Ron Finch as one of the premiere
custom motorcycle builders of all time.
