Mr. Cason’s interest in motorcycles began with his purchase of a 1966 Sportster and then intensified with his passion for street class racing. This eventually propelled him into the pro drag circuit (nitro-methane class) in 1991. Ray has the combined talents of high speed racing and mechanical ingenuity to offer his customers at Thunder Bay Custom Cycles.
