Custom Riders was established by Jakes & Colette and a few dedicated and loyal chopper owners in 1995. The very first meeting was held on 3 May 1995 after they nearly joined another club. Those years clubs were few and far apart and because everyone shared the same passion and love for choppers, we finally decided to start our own club with like minded Custom bikes and people.

As the years went by and the bikes changed, so did the members and their interest in choppers. We were faced with challenges such as bikes being chopped from the back: Streetfighters, which according to the constitution there is nothing wrong in accepting them in the club. This opened the door to a new crowd and the club got bigger and stronger.

We wanted to proof a point by having a day jol without the normal entrance fees etc. We had a very enjoyable day and we managed to even make a few rand. This simple yet very enjoyable day, lead to the famous Poison Rally which was established in 1998.

In 2000 we opened another chapter to the already strong and well known West Rand side. The Maritzburg chapter, now known as the KZN chapter, soon became a strong and healthy chapter. A few years later it was time to expand even more. We opened a chapter in Balfour in 2006. Both chapters went from strength to strength. Currently the KZN chapter is running the successful Bee Sting Rally and Balfour is having a very enjoyable day jol each year.

However, everything was not always smooth sailing! We use to have a Durban chapter as well as a Harrismith chapter. Things never turned out the way we intended and both were closed down.

Currently, most of the members in Custom Riders, have been with the club for five years or longer. Before a new person is allowed in the club, they still need to have some kind of Custom bike however the focus has moved to the person and not only their bike like it use to be. Everyone joins as an appy, changes into a friend and eventually becomes part of the bigger family.

In 2005, we celebrated the club's 10th birthday with a weekend away called the AGT - Annual Get Together. Since then, each chapter gets a turn in hosting this amazing long weekend and is one of the highlights on the Custom Rider calender.

Custom Riders became an exclusive club were the focus is on the brotherhood amongst members and our aim for the next five years will exactly be that: Growing the bond between members.

Custom Riders - Referring to both the customized bikes, as well as the customized persons. Our bikes, our club and we are different from what people are used to.
