Of Minds and Motorcycles


Brian Kates: Designer-Welder-Mechanic-Engineer


I run my own metal working studio where I work on everything from custom motorcycles and parts to furniture. Check out my bike builds at Motobrix, or check out my Instagram page to see what I've been up to.

I'll be honest, a lot has changed since I started this blog.

Originally it was about my journey to becoming a motorcycle builder and craftsman after growing up in a more academic environment. Now almost 3 years later, it's mainly a platform for me to talk about what I've been up to around the shop, and to update on my motorcycle builds and furniture projects.

I'm no longer thinking so much about where I should go with my career, and why I'm doing what I'm doing. I'm now just doing it.

My main purpose of writing this blog is to share my story and to inspire others to become builders. If you've ever thought of making something or building something but have stopped yourself, don't. Get back at it and start making!
