Industry Artists - Frankie Serrano of FSD


Frankie Serrano Designs is an exhaust shop specializing in the fabrication of custom made exhaust systems for both American and Metric motorcycles. All their exhausts are handmade 100% in the USA.
 
They service both the general public as well as bike builders around the world with a choice of our production pipes models or One of a Kind (One-Offs) pipes for both American and Metric.
Everything they make is done by hand; they don't subcontract oversees (or anywhere else) to some factory that will crack the whip on its employees to process your order in 48 hours. At Frankie Serrano Designs each order is handled with the proper care and attention that larger companies can't afford to give you. Every single order will be fabricated or overseen by Frankie Serrano himself. So when they say "production pipe" we don't mean "off the shelf", they mean "handmade from one of Frankie's designs".


Their One of a Kind (One-Offs) exhausts are the reflection of their clients' state of mind and lifestyles. Their pipes are designed to mimic your personality and give you that show bike look, all without burning a hole in your wallet.


Frankie Serrano is a true master at his craft with a unique approach to his designs and creations. Part cool, part turbulent, his unconventional ways will insure that you are getting a product you would have never been able to get anywhere else: an original Frankie Serrano designed and fabricated exhaust.

Frankie's exhausts have won numerous awards from various bike shows and have been featured in articles and on the cover of magazines around the world.

ABOUT FRANKIE
 

As everthing in Frankie's life is a contradiction, Frankie started his education as a computer animator with a Bachelor's degree and continued on to a Master in computer special effects. After finishing his education he became a teacher at the Master's level (how many of you expected to read that?). After throwing his last computer out the window, he decided he was not a computer minded guy and that fabricating exhausts was where his true passion and talent lied. He went on to AMI (American Motor Institution) and then on to welding school where he excelled and achieved various certifications.
Frankie then started working in the motorcycle industry, first with Eddie Trotta (much love to Eddie) where he was quickly promoted to the position of head fabricator. Enriched by his experience working for Eddie Trotta, Frankie went on to working on his own and came out with the original Hotrods and Infernos designs; all leading to the creation of FSD Exhausts.

WA's Nitro Fury in V-Twin!

We first want to thank all the companies involved in this build that have their product featured on our project bike titled 'Nitro-Fury'! Alot of companies took the extra time to make new 'prototype' products for our Honda Fury that are now in production. We look forward to continue to work with companies in the near future on further shop projects.

Below is a photo of the V-Twin Magazine August 2012 issue that has a 5 page feature on our 2010 Hond Fury. Our project was completed just before the 2011 Myrtle Beach Grand Strand Bike Rally and photographed for V-Twin back in November of 2011.


 
We look forward to everyone seeing a few other projects featured in the near future that WA has had a hand in.

W.A. goes with Cannella!

The Aftermarket is really starting to come alive in offering parts for Honda’s new VTX1300 Fury! One of these top companies is Cannella Custom Cycles, LLC. Based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Cannella offers pristine products ranging from handle bar risers and levers to stylish covers and kickstands.

WA had the opportunity of checking out some of their products first hand and the quality was so top notch that we had to have it on our Nitro-Fury project bike! Not only was their shipping fast and parts packaged nicely to prevent any shipping damage their prices are practical for the quality and not one ‘extra’ modification was needed to install their great fitting products.

The levers are a dream! Their style is only met by their comfort when shifting and braking. We give Cannella big brownie points for continuing the style of their levers to their beefy kickstand. We were a little apprehensive on replacing the kickstand do the bike’s Platinum air suspension. Had the kickstand been to long the bike would not remain up right when lowered all the way and had it been too long the bike would angle too far when parked at riding height. It sets perfect with the Cannella kickstand which shows first hand their product development is to proper fit and function as well as style.


We have to say that probably one of the top 5 products/modifications we have done to date on our project Nitro-Fury are Cannella's handle bar risers! Hands down! It's a product installation you will appreciate very time you ride, through out your ride and when you get off. Your back will appreciate it even more how ever! Not only does their system offset the bars up about 2", but they also set the bars back to you about 2". This provides more bend in your arm and better seating posture while riding. thought the clearence is closing when turning, our bars do not hit the tank! Read our lips... BUY THE RISERS! Your back will thank you! 
Before
After
Their kit included all the hardware, lock tight and easy to follow instructions. After the above photo, we did end up moving the clutch cable behind the triple trees for a better look and to reduce the tightness on the cable when turning. A quick note, be very careful when threading the screws into the riser. Though this can be a one person job, it will help greatly to  have an extra set of hands to hold the bars in the right place so as to not cross thread the screw.
In all the riser, levers and kickstand was about a 3 hour install time and only required basic garage tools. For more information on Cannella Custom Cycle products visit them by clicking their logo on our page for a direct path to their site.

The Fury Meets the Dragon!

We had a great turn out for a first meet of Furyforums.com members at the Tail of the Dragon (Hwy 129).

 From Florida to New York, Honda Fury owners came far and wide to test their skills on the tail of the dragon. This was also a chance for Fury owners to meet and great others, see what customizing others are doing to their Fury and share stories and comments they have received in regards to thier Fury.


We were there to also adding some pin stripping on site to a few Furys at our gathering point, the Microtel in Robbinsville, NC. The weather was fantastic on the day of the ride and everyone had a great and safe time on the Dragon. We look forward to this becoming an annual meet in the future!

Quaker Steak & Lube Bike Night!

Located right off Hwy 85 in Concord, NC, Quaker Steak and Lube not only hosts some of the best wings and coldest beer in NC, but also hosts a great bike night every Wednesday night! On the last Wednesday of everymonth however, Quaker Steak takes it up a notch with their Bikini Contest that has a $500 first place prize! More vendors were than ever before were out including Indian Cycles, Mafia Motorsports, Nationwide Ins., etc...


Also appearing last Wednesday was Easyrider Cover Model, Cam-Ranh Chandler! Shes was signing autographs as well as taking pics with fans. She gave us the honor of stopping by our Waters Airbrush booth to chat and take a few pics with one of our project bikes, Nitro-Fury.



The band was top notch and played an array of music from the 70s, 80s and 90s such as ZZtop, CCR, etc... This helped fuel us in our booth because we were slammed with pin strip work that we do on the spot!

From a Harley bagger to a black and silver Honda Fury, we were pin stripping anything that came in our booth! Except of course miss Jillianne (pic below). Not only was she in the bikini contest, but is the official 'Quaker Steak Bike Wash' girl every Wednesday night. Thanks for taking some pics with some of our customers and their bikes! It really made their night!
See more pics on our EVENT page! Come check us out every Wednesday evening at Quaker Steak & Lubes Bike Night all through the Summer!

Nitro-Fury Gets Controlled by DLX!

New Forward Controlls not only set off a bikes looks, but can also improve comfort while driving. DLX Prodox offers an array of styles, finishes and options in the aftermarket forward control market. From to chrome to black anodized, their finish is second to none.
We wanted to try to match our grips and the DLX crew had just the ticket with putting a set of their tribal flame foot and toe pegs on the the new forwards for our Nitro-Fury.
While we were at it, a set of matching rear passenger foot pegs was a must! We went ahead and removed the black passenger brackets and sprayed them silver to match the frame. A little extra time and some color match paint made this a simple project to add some detail.
Now being of shorter stature (5'7" and a half!) we did not want to extende the foot placement. DLX saw the need to develope a forward control that fit exactly what we were looking for with their new Standard system. Now alot of companys can provide great products that look good, but few back it up with top knotch customer service. We speak first hand, DLX Prodox is one of those few companies!
Check out DLX Prodox website for their top knotch products. Their link is on our home page.
