A testimonial from Adam:
“Medusa Fabrication is a breath of fresh air. When regular people think of motorcycles and the culture involved, they often times think of Sturgis or American Chopper, but that isn’t the way Medusa approaches things. With old world techniques and simplicity of design in mind, Chad and Theo approach each bike in a very minimalist way, and that’s one of the things that attracted me to their shop.
Chad is my older brother, and when he told me he was getting into motorcycle fabrication with his buddy I was a little skeptical. Growing up Chad was always taking my Walkman, or stereo, or anything, and breaking it down to see how it worked (most times not reassembling them). He has always had an artistic talent, too, that was far superior to mine. But motorcycles? I didn’t really see the connection.
It wasn’t until I started hanging out in the shop, watching their brains break down my project, and seeing their vision come to life that I finally understood the attraction. A motorcycle is a method of transportation, a piece of art, and inevitably an extension of your persona. It’s the reason you wake up early on your day off. It’s the rides through the countryside. And it’s a great reason to get dirty and drink a few cold ones.
I know it’s silly sounding since I’ve known Chad my whole life, but working on my motorcycle with him and Theo has given me insights into their lives that I would never have gotten otherwise. Guess that’s what Medusa is all about. It’s their lives.”
