Meet Paul Wideman

Bare Knuckle Performance was founded in 2003 by Paul Wideman after recognizing his affinity for quality-built motorcycles. What started as building custom chopper frames for Harley-Davidson Enthusiasts, quickly turned into a full line of hand made parts for all bikes from Sportsters to Touring models.

Everything at Bare Knuckle Performance is made in the USA, no questions asked. The company lives and dies by that sentiment. Customizing Harleys is one of the most American things a person can do, and at Bare Knuckle they believe that every part and weld should be American, with no shortcuts. Buying USA-made keeps that dollar right here at home. It would be far easier to outsource parts overseas, like so many companies do, lowering the bottom line and increasing profit, but that’s not the Bare Knuckle way. They encourage you to do the same: support local, support USA-made.

Bare Knuckle Performance puts pride into everything they do, and recently, as Paul’s son Sam has joined the company, they’ve become multi-generational. Paul and Sam have become the ultimate team as they forge into the future with new designs, highest quality parts, and the latest innovations for the most unique choppers. They employ the highest quality fabrication and manufacturing techniques and hand-picked steels, to produce parts that are created and made in the USA to exacting tolerances. Says Paul, “When a customer orders from us, they are guaranteed to receive the best parts for their motorcycle.”

For Bare Knuckle Performance, choppers are a way of life. Paul is a true craftsman of the arts, and the vision and attention to detail he brings to the industry is second to none. As they enjoy their 21st year in business, watch for more innovation to come.
