Meet Custom Bike Legend (and Birthday Boy) Paul Yaffe

One of the most influential forces in custom motorcycles comes to Morongo

Paul Yaffe
Founder of Bagger Nation and Paul Yaffe Originals

“It all started with a love of motorcycles and a curiosity and desire to see what could be made of them,” says Paul. “I never would have guessed, when I first started experimenting in the mid eighties, that it would lead to where we are today.”

Paul Yaffe has enjoyed one of the most storied and influential careers in motorcycle designing and building. Paul opened his first custom shop, American Legend Motorcycle Co, in 1991. Today, 25 years later, Paul Yaffe’s Bagger Nation (together with Paul Yaffe Originals) is recognized as one of—if not the—preeminent custom motorcycle and parts manufacturers in the world. In the past three decades, the two-time Hall of Fame inductee has won many awards, contests, and honors, including the only three-time consecutive “World’s Most Beautiful Motorcycle” awards at the famous Oakland Roadster Show and two “Builder of the Year” and three “Trendsetter of the Year” honors from Easyriders Magazine. The subject of many articles and profiles, Paul has also featured in the Discovery Channel’s popular show Biker Build-Off and the 10-episode docudrama Biker Battleground on the History Channel.

Recognized as an influential force in the world of custom motorcycle building, Paul opened his shop Paul Yaffe’s Bagger Nation (together with Paul Yaffe Originals) twenty-five years ago, and today his designs are among the best and most sought after on the planet.
