This bike was built exclusively to promote Full Throttle Magazine NY. The Beast toured for a full year 2006-2007 being displayed at Sturgis, Laconia and Daytona Bike Weeks. The tour also included unveilings at The Jacob Javits Center during the International Motorcycle Show and Biketoberfest.

Greg Sheridan grew up in a neighborhood where kids were always looking to fabricate, build, and take apart anything remotely resembling a motorcycle. They started with bicycle frames and lawn mower engines and by the time Sheridan was 16 he was building rigid frame choppers. When it came to building and designing bikes, it was pretty much a natural talent for him. Simplicity played a major roll in his builds. One thing was for certain, whatever image Greg envisioned the bike would look like, is what he stuck to throughout the build. Alternatives are never an option as far as he is concerned. Greg feels that dedication and discipline are two of the main ingredients in achieving goals one sets for themselves. He has always built ole’ skool since he started building bikes back in the early 70’s, and with this theme bike, Greg really didn’t use much more as far as machines go, then he used back then. As Greg would say, “There is nothing better than taking your own two hands and molding metal into custom parts”.

Note: considering the fact that the Beast was built over 10 years ago, some of the shops listed in the spec sheet are no longer in business.
