The Morton brothers started building custom bikes as early as 1983. After working for other companies, Doug and Rodney decided to open their own shop. Rodney went to AMI Daytona Beach to receive his degree in Harley-Davidson maintenance. While Rodney was attending school, Doug stayed in Concord and built up equity in the building. After graduating with honors Rodney returned, and the brothers opened up Morton's Custom Bikes.
In 1993, Easyrider had their convention in Charlotte for the first time. The Morton's entered two bikes; they won both the Sportster and the Panhand Class. Both bikes were built from the ground up. Since Morton's won their first awards at Easyrider, they have added over two hundred awards and trophies to their credit. With Morton's expert skills and experience, they have been recognized by VQ magazine as Master Bike Builders.
