"Mama Tried Motorcycle Show is an indoor invitational showcasing honest, home-built
and unusual bikes"
To have our very own Johnathon Denton counted among this year's invited builders is a huge honor. Johnathon is a master of his craft. Precision, performance, perfection are the three things that come to mind when I think about how Johnathon approaches every build, every product design, and every customer interaction. Johnathon is passionate about what he brings to the motorcycle community: beautiful OEM inspired Harley-Davidsons with a high performance twist.
When it comes to innovative solutions, clean lines, and diligent designs--Johnathon is a force to be reckoned with. You can meet Johnathon( and DDP co-founder Sam) at Mama Tried this year in Milwaukee.
“Building motorcycles has been something that for me has evolved from a simplistic hobby of modification for purpose --to a passion of style, performance, and being aesthetically elegant. I’ve learned less is more and let the engineering speak for itself. For example, you wouldn’t want a metal flake lace, panel style paint job on a F40 Ferrari. When it’s an engineering work of art, a solid color encompasses what’s important. To stay true to a style giving every ounce of passion, energy, and time to build something you think is perfection is an undertaking. To have my work recognized by Warren and Scott is surreal. Receiving my invite to the Mama Tried Show is a dream come true for me. Displaying the FXLRT at the major league of motorcycle shows is something I have truly been humbled by. I live for motorcycles, especially Harley Davidson’s. I can’t wait to step on the frozen ground in Milwaukee and be surrounded by like minded individuals for a few days to get the creative mindset flowing full steam ahead for 2020. 2019 proved one thing for me, stay true to your passion, you never know who just might be watching. 2020 here I come.”
Sam and Johnathon will be freezing their bones and showing off their hard work
March 13th-15th 2020 in Milwaukee Wisconsin. This Harley-Davidson Motor Co sponsored show is full of cool builders and notorious shenanigans. We hope to see you there!

Hey mom, we made it in a magazine!
We hit it off with the crew from Thunderpress Magazine at the VTV Tour in Maryville, Tn.
It was hard not to. Their infectious passion for motorcycles made it easy for us to see their vision. When they reached out to interview us--we couldn't have been more excited. Thunderpress Magazine champions themselves as the "Journal of the American V-Twin Community". When we spoke with Joy Burgess for our interview, we knew they would do a great job showcasing just how passionate we are about building bikes that are fast, beautiful, and worthy of the DDP name. Our desire to be the pinnacle of high performance bleeds into everything that we do. Joy said it best when she pegged us as a high performance motorcycle shop that takes high performance Harley-Davidson to the next level. Looking to get to know us a little more personally--check out the article. Better yet--check out the whole magazine and support our little corner of the motorcycle world. We want to thank Joy B. for her attention to detail and the great article. To Thunderpress for thinking we are good looking enough for a magazine. And to the readers who will take their time to get to know us and our drive for excellence.
Make sure to follow along with Thunderpress as they feature us several more times as we unveil our upcoming build for the 2020 V-Twin Visionary (VTV) Tour.

Somebody once said: "If you want a bike the MoCo doesn't make, you gotta build it yourself."
Actually, we were the ones to say that. And we did it. The Dirty Dixie Performance Real 2019 Sport Glide build and what put us on the map. Long build hours went in to making this a high performance beast and we couldn't be happier with how this build turned out.
