“Our Bells have been widely imitated. We continue to ensure Spurcycle efforts in design and manufacturing are worth following—exhaustively engineering like a much bigger company but with the soul of a fabricator’s garage.

Everything Spurcycle is assembled in-house

“We’re at the center of a manufacturing network with extensive capabilities in machining, stamping, and forming. This is our collective “shop”, originally equipped with basic mill and lathe, grown over the years to include a hundred times more equipment and global expertise. Diverse fabrication options keep our design process open and let more ideas take shape. In everything you see marked with our logo, there are a few things we promise ourselves and our customers. Anything we make will be…”

  • Durable and serviceable.
  • Aesthetically and functionally refined.
  • Priced to accurately reflect how it’s built and the functional value it delivers.
  • Made without gaps in responsibility.
