Having owned the world's largest biker bar for well over a decade, I’ve come to know the most famous bike builders in business. What they have in common is they each excel in one area or another. Billy Lane, fabrication is yes, building a motor is a no. It's the same with Chica or Jessie Rooke. The opposite holds true for Kendall Johnson, he can build one hell of an engine.
This is about Dave Iversen. Here's a guy who will not only design a frame that will enhance a bike or streetrod's attitude, he will then personally fabricate that design. When it’s time to start the sheet metal work Dave will be creating something on his English wheel like you’ve never seen before. Did I mention when it comes time to paint, Dave can lay down a job worthy of a $100,000.00 plus streetrod.
Here's a guy who grew up on a ranch in South Dakota. That means a great work ethic. When other little boys were playing with toy cars, he was wrenching on real ones. With a degree in art and hands that can create anything his mind can conceive, Dave Iversen is the full package. He's what I call one of the one-per-centers. In fact, Dave Perowitz, Arlen Ness, Indian Larry and Dave Iversen are the only 1%'ers that I know of.
Dave Iversen is not only a great friend but one of the most talented people I've ever met. Knowing Dave, these words would be embarrassing for him to read and his biggest flaw is self-promotion. His works of art speak for themselves and I hope one day to own a Dave Iversen original.- Jay Allen, owner Broken Spoke Saloon
