Jakes Oosthuizen rode as an Appy for another club in the early '90. He rode a chopper at the time, so battled to keep up with the faster bikes. Jakes soon realized he was farting against thunder. Jakes decided he wanted to form a Club that the members had the same passion for Custom Built Bikes. They did not have to ride the hell out of their bikes to keep up with anyone else, but rather enjoy the motorcycle on the wide open road. That ladies and gentleman is how Custom Riders was established in 1995.
Today the Club is open to all riders with various bikes. The name of the Club is held high, as all members have the same passion for their motorcycles, and live by the biker's code: Love, Honour and Respect!
