Story by: John Zamora

In the classic song One Piece At a Time, Johnny Cash sings about putting together a Cadillac by smuggling out parts from the factory in his lunch box over a 20 year period. When he finally had a complete car, he ended up with a monstrosity of metal and misaligned pieces. Custom bikes often follow that same road on their path to completion. Just like the story in the song, as each part is made to fit a specific model it won’t fit on newer versions.

The R1 has been the base for plenty of cool customs over the years. In 2009, the big Y shocked the motorcycling world with its MotoGP-inspired cross-plane motor encased in an all new chassis and fresh plastics. Since the R1’s reinvention, there’s been a sprint by builders to make parts to turn this race ready bike into a show stopping custom.

Roaring Toyz has always been at the forefront of the custom scene and the first to debut accessories, often before the bikes are even available to the public. RT’s owner, Robert Fisher, saw the latest R1 as the perfect platform to adapt its line of single-sided swingarms. “Since the first time I heard it run, I wanted to own one of these bikes. I found the cross-plane firing order on these engines very interesting and couldn’t wait to ride and customize one. I got the opportunity to buy one that had some body damage for a discounted price and jumped at the chance. We were launching our new billet single-sided swingarms and this was the perfect bike to release it on.”...

Roaring Toyz featured on celebrating 10 Years as the Innovators of Custom Sportbike design.


Jan 28 2010, Charlotte, NC. - Roaring Toyz... 10 Years Past
Story by: Scott Odel

After editing through some images from a recent photo shoot at Roaring Toyz in Sarasota, FL, I became focused on one particular image.’s own Neale Bayly did a couple of shots sitting on the newest creation from Robert Fisher, owner of Roaring Toyz. Yes…it is a pink Yamaha FZ6R, and it was at that moment I realized that “Pink” is what brought Neale, Robert and myself together 10 years ago. It’s not what you think, so I better explain.

I had become friends with Neale at a chance encounter, (but that is a whole story by itself and started photographing for him when he was running the now defunct, a great outlet for motorcycle journalism. One thing led to another in the motorcycle world and we ended up covering an AMA racing team called…you guessed it…The Big Pink Machine. Robert Fisher happened to be one of the riders that was riding a totally pink bike and we all ended up at the Daytona 200, my first time photographing with a team…in the pits.

Sarasota, FL. - Grammy Award winning artist, Rapper, Actor and Motorcycle fanatic Chris "Ludacris" Bridges needs no introduction, but what he did need was a custom sportbike to "Disturb Tha Peace"

Robert Fisher and Mat Mladin Unveil Roaring Toyz/Bike Gear Warehouse Suzuki GSX-R1000 at Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway


MONTEREY, Calif. - Roaring Toyz owner Robert Fisher and Yoshimura Suzuki roadracer Mat Mladin unveiled the latest creation from Roaring Toyz today at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca: a custom Suzuki GSX-R1000 built to showcase Bike Gear Warehouse. This build marks the first time that Fisher and Mladin have teamed up on a project. After meeting each other at an AMA Superbike round earlier this season, the two began discussing ideas for a custom sportbike to promote Mladin’s new business, Bike Gear Warehouse. The Australian distribution company will be carrying Roaring Toyz products, so the collaboration was a natural choice.

“Since I’m a roadracer myself, it was great to team up with Mat. This Suzuki is a custom, but we utilized a lot of performance parts, making it a true blend of roadracing technology and custom style,” said Fisher. Fisher and Mladin unveiled the bike in the American Suzuki tent at Laguna Seca Saturday morning. Fans in attendance were able to get a poster of the Roaring Toyz Suzuki signed by Mladin.

The Roaring Toyz/Bike Gear Warehouse Suzuki GSX-R1000 will travel to all of the remaining AMA Superbike rounds this season before making the long trek to Australia, where it will be used for Bike Gear Warehouse promotions. The bike features a long list of modifications, including a Roaring Toyz custom swingarm that gives the bike three inches of stretch, Performance Machine Mayhem Black Contrast Cut wheels, and a 240 size Dunlop rear tire.

Among the performance upgrades are a Yoshimura R77 full stainless steel exhaust, a Bazzaz Performance Z-FI Fuel Control Unit, an Öhlins TTX36 rear shock absorber, Vortex Racing rearsets, and Galfer steel-braided brake lines.
