Bob fanniff was a bike builder out in Glendale California. His shop was known as custom canyon racers. He was like a father to me and the man had talents way before his time.as a kid I would hang out around his shop and watch him put bikes together from the floor up including engines. He was no joke.he would build fairings and solo seats out of aluminum way before bikes were sold with them.sadly he past away in 1990 and I miss him very much..he was a big influence in my life but he did leave me some old school customising tricks that I still apply to all my rides..he also customised cars and vans but not many new that.I hope this is the man your asking about.

Thanks Jesse... that's the first info I have been given about him. I read that he was originally in the Glendale PD? Anyway, thanks for the info... good basis for more investigation.
