bikerMetric: Talk to me, bro.
Tail End Customs: My name is Josh Bergeron and I’m from League City, TX. I rebuild industrial turbo chargers full time and run Tail End Customs part time. Just a guy trying to do some fun things in life before I die.
bikerMetric: What inspired you? Was there a look you were going for?
Tail End Customs: Well if you’re talking about the Brown Recluse bike my inspiration was just old school style. I did a few modern bikes and wanted something with more of an retro feel to it.
bikerMetric: Nice. How did you the bike, and how was it when you got it?
Tail End Customs: A customer Matt from Austin brought it to me and said man I love your work hook it up, I trust you. So I threw a few ideas at him and he loved it. Sometimes I like to marinate on thinking about a bike for a few days to get it down in my head. Things can change just within a few hours thinking about stuff in my head. Haha.
bikerMetric: We’ve featured you on here a number of times. Hope we can keep showing your work! Anyway, what mods did you do?
Tail End Customs: Well from what I remember I chopped the rear frame, capped, welded it up to accept solo seat. Mounted a nice fender. Made a nice sissy bar. Custom air filter all rejetted and cleaned. New fluids. Threw some bitwell bars and some metalflake grips and pegs. I sand blasted all the tins and then hand brushed them. Then we (ConroePowdercoating) powdercoated them with a nice Sable Brown. They came out beautiful. Then had my boy Sic713 lay down some awesome old school pinstriping.
bikerMetric: Favorite mod?
Tail End Customs: Sissy bar and powdercoat probably my favorite.
bikerMetric: Fill in the blank: Something I enjoyed about this build is _____________________.
Tail End Customs: Just getting to spend time and contribute with my homies.
bikerMetric: What’s the next build going to be?
Tail End Customs: Well I’m working on a Yamaha V-Star 650. Doing a hardtail and single backbone. Should be pretty cool.
bikerMetric: The V-Star builds are kind of a signature of yours around this site, where else can we find your builds and more info on you?
Tail End Customs: www.tailendcustoms.com or on Instagram: tailendcustoms
bikerMetric: It’s shout-out o’clock, who are you calling?
Tail End Customs: Shout out to Matt for letting me customize his bike. Tim at ConroePowdercoating. Mike at Sic713. Sorry if I forgot anyone.
