Lovely, talented, and one helluva rider, Natalie Jackson is teaming up with AFT Customs as the duo aims to bridge the gap between custom motorcycles and racing at venues like the Salt Flats.
AFT Customs, the world class custom metric bike builder and Natalie Jackson, celebrity TV spokesperson and accomplished motorcycle racer, today announced an alliance bringing custom built motorcycles to the race track.
AFT Customs is best known for innovative custom motorcycles that have won countless awards including four AMD World Championship wins. AFT Customs has achieved Level 2 International Master Bike Builder status, the highest achievable level, and is known worldwide for innovative metric customs. AFT Customs is the pioneer in the metric field.
AFT Customs has been invited to many of the top invitation-only shows including Las Vegas’ Artistry in Iron, Art of the Chopper and many more. AFT Customs is home to the AFT Custom Girls, a modeling agency that is highly involved in the building process, from motor assembly to welding and fabrication.
“AFT Customs has proven that we build beautiful customs and components,”
said Giuffra, owner of AFT Customs. “By aligning with Natalie Jackson, we will prove that the bikes also are track and race worthy. Natalie will help to round out our land speed racing team and add additional experience in racing and media training.”
Natalie Jackson, a popular fixture in the motorcycle scene from racing to motorcycle reviews, has appeared on TV and in magazines and has represented some of the largest motorcycle manufacturers in the world. Jackson began her racing career in 2003 by drag racing on quarter-mile tracks on a Harley-Davidson Night Train. Since then she has competed in numerous Northern and Southern California Regional Supermoto events and in March of 2005 won the Southern Supermotard-USA Lightweight Championship.
Later Jackson began working with top motorcycle manufactures reviewing their motorcycles.

It is a very exciting time for the two companies and the increased visibility of the alliance will help to benefit us and the many companies and products we represent.”
