Roger's passion for performance in both form and function can be seen in all of his work. From an old shovelhead that he's getting back on the road to a custom build destined for the Bonneville Salt Flats, Roger's love of metal and engines is expressed in every detail.
Roger gained his foundation with training and an apprenticeship in machining and engine building from BCIT, then relocated to Phoenix to study at the Harley-Davidson motorcycle mechanics training facility MMI. As soon as he was able to focus on his passion for motorcycle building he quickly gained recognition in the bike community and stacked up an impressive list of awards and accolades.
Surrounded by a collection of performance motorcycles, Roger still grabs his dirt bike on the weekend to rip it up on the local hills with his boys. He's even been caught chasing his dogs around the yard on a mini-bike.. yes.. a mini bike. A simple passion for riding and creating clean lines keeps the Goldammer shop turning out solid work.
Roger's range of projects is pretty diverse. Manufacturing parts, bike performance work, custom builds and even prototyping. Early on the Goldammer Shop's main focus was anything motorcycles. The bikes he builds have always shared technology but his ability to think outside of the box and experiment has created opportunities to work on unique projects outside of the motorcycle industry.
Roger certainly doesnt define himself by the awards he's won at bike competitions or the top speeds he's achieved at Bonneville. His focus is the experience of the build, the ride and the interesting people he meets along the way.
Roger’s unique and innovative designs clearly express his passion for performance in both form and function. Metal, gasoline and a little spark is all he needs to consistently break new ground.
