Analog Motorcycles started in the summer of 2009. Tony Prust, founder, has been riding and customizing motorcycles for over 15 years in conjunction with his job as a percussion technician for the rock band Chevelle. When the band’s drummer Sam Loeffler wanted a custom café racer he asked his drum tech to moonlight as a bike tech.
The project bike was a horrendously wide and bulky Bimota DB3 that was turned over to the Bostrom brothers for a racetrack test outside of Chicago.
Today, Prust is fully focused on Analog Motorcycles and building bikes. The attention to detail Tony has developed throughout this hobby, combined with his previous profession as a trim carpenter, is starting to result in incredibly beautiful motorcycles. His goal has always been to put together bikes that both look good and perform well.
Currently Analog is capable of small accessory installs to full custom bike builds, powder coating to fabricating and everything in between.
