“Son, once you get those training wheels off,” Mark said, “I’ll buy you your first motorcycle.”

A day later, Haven could ride his first bicycle without training wheels. Soon, he was on a motorcycle…at three years old. “I just thought it was so cool that I could go so fast, and everything was a blur, and I got to do it myself,” Haven says. “I was really free, I think I always held on to that.”

All of the signs present in a typical workshop are here: workbenches, welding supplies, spare parts, but the warehouse Mark and Haven live in have been the focal point of their relationship and projects. Now a teenager, Haven has been turning heads with his first few custom motorcycles—that he’s made all by himself.
