In his own words:

“Hey Guys and Gals,

I'm Bud and here is MY story.

I've always had a fascination with everything-mechanical, the beauty of moving parts, making broken down equipment run again and so on.

I'm a 52 yr. old truck mechanic, turning wrenches since I was a little kid and still love it and live in Newington, CT. - have since I was two.

My first bike which I got my M/C license with was a beautiful ‘68 Electra-Glide and have had several bikes since including a 1937 45, 1942 Knuckle, 1951 Pan, several Shovels, Twin Cams and my 2001 Sportster 883 which you see here. I bought this bike just to bomb around on and was gonna leave it stock, however as everything I own, nothing remains stock, who was I kidding?!

First thing done was basically known as Stage1.

Got the bug now, motor gets a Hammer Performance 1250 big bore kit with head work and cams, lovin' it but? TC Bros. comes out with this awesome weld-on hardtail, gotta have it!!!

Call up and order tail, battery box and oil tank, within a couple days it's here, bike on lift, frame cut, tail welded on, fit box and tank and within no more than a week I’m movin' down the road.

Let me tell ya, these guys know quality. Everything heavy-duty, welds spot-on, fitment perfect and style is top of the heap.

All work done right here in my garage by Me, Myself, and I including paint which is straight outta the Dupli-Color cans.

Thanks for the high quality products you provide to us craftsmen.”      

Sincerely, Bud Ronczka


On behalf of TC Bros. Nation… Thank you, Bud!!!
