      Lowbrow was started in 2004, a physical manifestation of chopper fever and passion for all things motorcycle. We are the #1 source for custom and chopper parts for your moto, backed by a tight-knit crew here in northeast Ohio who strive to make your experience with us the best possible. We not only work hard to supply motorcycle enthusiasts with cool parts from small shops all around the world but to also keep innovating and building, creating brand new parts and accessories, getting them out onto the road.

      The history of Lowbrow Customs

      Check out the History of Lowbrow Customs article above for some old photos from the early years! Started in a spare bedroom in 2004, there has been constant growth and change through the years.

      THE STORY OF LOWBROW CUSTOMS

      Lowbrow Customs was born from a love of vintage motorcycles paired with a frustration at the lack of high-quality parts, delivered on-time. Lowbrow Customs started with a homemade website, in a spare bedroom and basement in a duplex in Parma, Ohio, USA. Passion for custom motorcycles, along with a strong focus on incredible customer service, motorcycle technical support, and the highest-quality parts and accessories helped turn Lowbrow from a side-business into a thriving

      Heading to small hot rod and motorcycle shows around the midwest and hosting some crazy events attracted like-minded individual to Lowbrow. Over the years we have built a strong following of passionate motorcycle enthusiasts. We feel that our customers enjoy dealing with a company that is different from the norm, and find it refreshing.

      Over the last two decades we have designed and produced many innovative motorcycle parts and apparel. We also find the best parts from brands small and large, world-wide, and stock their wares on our shelves. Today Lowbrow Customs is one of the top brands for custom and chopper parts.

      May of 2019 marked the 15th anniversary of Lowbrow Customs. We thought it would be great to share the story of how it all got started. This documentary-style film takes a hard look at the company's beginnings, filled with old photos, stories, and interviews from Tyler Malinky, founder, and CEO of Lowbrow Customs, his brother Kyle Malinky, and more of the staff. Sit back, grab some popcorn, and take a ride with us here at Lowbrow Customs.
