Atlanta Big Twin Customs Winner to be Featured on TLC's Biker Build-Off Tonight!

Bryan Fuller, Fuller Hot Rods, will be featured on TLC's Biker Build-Off scheduled for Thursday March 1st, 10PM following American Chopper.

Fuller, who resides in Atlanta, GA, recently won the Cycle World International Motorcycle Shows Big Twin Customs showcase at the final stop in Atlanta with his "VC Tech Indian". Fuller also had on display the actual bike that will be featured on tonight's show, "Fueller", where he goes head-to-head with Greg Westbury of Westbury Handcrafted Motorcycles.

Bryan Fuller grew up in a small town outside of Dallas, TX where bicycles were the main mode of transportation up until high school. From a very young age, Fuller took them apart, painted, changed wheels, etc... almost weekly - much to the dismay of his parents. He bought his first chopper at the age of about 8 and had built his own halfpipe in the backyard by middle school. Any good BMXer in town rode over for the usual Saturday freestyle session. Bicycles were his life.

After graduating from the University of North Texas and deciding that the corporate world was not his cup of tea, Fuller decided that it was time to follow his passions. He packed everything up, enrolled in the Wyoming Technical Institute and worked hard to become one of the outstanding students from their Street Rod program.

Fuller was hired by So-Cal Speed Shop in Pomona, CA to do sheetmetal and paint work. Apprenticing with some of the best in the business, he furthered his skills before being hired by GMT.

Fuller created Fuller Hot Rods in 2002 and was hired by Chip Foose to help him build some of his show winning creations and was an integral part of the Foose Design Team. In 2005, after completing the Riddler winning Impression, Fuller struck out on his own in downtown Atlanta, GA. Ben Logue's "Texas T" was the first motorcycle out of the shop and it received a very impressive 4th at the World Championship of Bike Building. The "T" was impressive enough to earn Bryan an invitation as one of the top 25 builders to compete for $25K at the "Artistry in Iron."



Fuller worked with VC Technical on the "VC Tech Indian", the bike won the Big Twin Custom competition in Atlanta!

For tonight's show, Fuller constructs a modern tire racer, while Westbury builds a hot rod motorcycle on a vintage Schwinn frame. The two artists ride to the Northeast Motorcycle Expo.
