HISTORY OF C&C CYCLE
For the past twenty-three years Roy Chamberlin has worked on motorcycles. RC Motorcycles, Inc. T/A C&C Cycle was chartered in the State of Maryland in September of 1993 at which time we leased a 1,000 sq. ft. warehouse space at 2129-3 Baldwin Avenue, Crofton, MD. In June 2004 we purchased an acre of land at 8182 Telegraph Road in Severn. This construction project took us 2-1/2 years to complete which is now 10,000 sq. ft.
Our history of C&C Cycle, Inc. for the past fourteen years is quite exciting. In 1989 we won several awards at the EasyRider Show in Columbus, Ohio which landed us several photo shoots in Daytona, FL which were later published in several magazines. C&C Cycle’s custom motorcycles have been featured in magazines such as: EasyRider, Hot Bike, Hot Rod Bike, V-Twin, Long Riders, Big Twin, American Iron, Biker, IronWorks and many local newspaper articles have been written about him. Our motorcycles have won numerous awards at the Rats Hole Show in Daytona, Florida (this is the biggest show in the US – people come from all over the world to compete) and had two of our customs chosen to represent the United States in an International Motorcycle Show in Essen Germany in 1991 and 1999. Our motorcycles have also been on display in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for Harley Davidson’s 90th, 95th and 100th Anniversary celebrations. Roy has also been featured on Comcast, SpeedVision, The National Geographic Channel and a few video tapes concerning bike builders.
In September of 2006 Roy decided that he was going to build his significant other, Margaret Nicastri, a custom “Bagger”. He purchased a “wrecked” 2004 Ultra Classic and customized it from the frame up. It has many hand-made “one off” (meaning you can’t buy the part – Roy only made one of them) parts. This bike placed first at the Baltimore International Motorcycle Show and Harrisburg PA Show. It then went to Daytona Beach and took first the Harley Davidson Motorcycle Show, first at the International Master Bike Builders Association Show and 2nd at the Rat’s Hole Show. This bike was photographed at while in Daytona Beach and is featured in the May issue of “American Bagger” magazine.
