Breaking News. Daytec Frames Closed Its Doors. Owner Phil Day To Join Fat Baggers Inc.

Repost:  Sad news for the custom motorcycle industry. Daytec,
one of the leading manufacturers of aftermarket frames for American
V-Twin Motorcycles with a state-of- the-art Powder Coating
division, has closed its doors. Phil Day created Daytec back
in 1974, first building high performance exhaust systems for the
boating industry, learning about powder coating and playing around
with all types of off-road vehicles,. JJCFLThen Daytec became the
leading manufacturer of  the highest quality custom
American V-Twin motorcycle frames, building them for different
brands like Arlen Ness and West Coast Choppers, and also creating
one-off frames for professional custom builders and individuals. In
its shop of Hesperia, California the Daytec team also performed
repair and restoration of classic and vintage frames. This morning,
Jesse James who confirmed to me the closure of Daytec, advised me
that his 2 signature frames, the CFL 1 (below picture) and CFL 3
(stainless steel) will now be made again at his own facility in
Austin, Texas. The industry just lost its best source for custom
American V-Twin custom motorcycle frames. Added
