owner & technician
Phil was born and raised in Hiram, GA., where he started riding at an early age on his Honda 50 mini bike. At 19, Phil began working for a Harley-Davidson dealership in Marietta, GA. After starting out washing bikes and sweeping floors, Phil was trained to perform new bike set-ups, install accessories, and performed light repair work. After 5 years, Phil went to work at a Harley-Davidson dealership in Atlanta where he continued training as a Technician, moved up to Service Writer, and eventually became the Service Department Manager. In 2004, Phil met Laura and eventually moved to Fayette County where he became the Parts and Service Manager at a Victory and Custom Brand Motorcycle Dealership in Peachtree City. After 5 years in business, the dealership decided to close their doors in June 2008. Since it has always been a dream for Phil to own his own shop, he figured the time was now or never, so on September 2, 2008, King Kustom Cycles was opened.
Laura doesn't get to have as much fun as Phil turning wrenches all week, but she does handle all of the behind the scenes work like the accounting and marketing, etc. For those of you who have not met her yet, she looks forward to meeting you soon!
