Legendary American Vendetta NYFC


Giving The Vendetta's first notice that I'm seller my Trike --Odom 03421-mls ( Never kept outdoors ) : asking $9k
Been calling Chris Haynes(the supposed owner/operator of L.A.V.) almost daily for the past 4 monthswith no answer(so I've left a message every time) every day since a supposed "accident" he had & when I went over in September. Like I said then & all along, if the job of fixing the engine problem for my bike is/was biting off more than he could chew, just say so & we could find a solution(it would've been a bit disappointing, but understandable). I went by & noticed that now my bike is outside UNCOVERED & exposed to the elements. So, I ask that he or whoever lives at the location cover it immediately so as not to possibly cause any additional need for repair. At this point if necessary I'm ready to pick up ALL of my bike. EVERY SINGLE PIECE that belongs to it & have it repaired & made road ready again somewhere else. STILL hasn't gotten back to me, so we can set that and any other logistics up. Even after daily visit to the location with "no one on site" to even give face to the issue.

Chris Rev. Hanes
Master Bike Builder

Chris has been building, restoring, and maintaining American motorcycles since 1988. In the fall of 1988, he built his first custom motorcycle from a basket case 1970 Harley Davidson Sportster. After many trips to the library and sweeping floors for anyone who would answer questions, the result was a stretched hardtail with a jockey shifter, su***de clutch, and a 14” over springer with no front brake. Chris continued to take every opportunity to learn his craft from Fathers of Custom Culture in Southern California. During his early years he could be found hanging around in the company of such custom icons as Ed “Big Daddy” Roth, Ben “Sugar Bear” Hardy, Kenny “Dutch Von Dutch” Howard or Chopper Culture legends Lou Kimzey, David Mann, and Joe Teresi.

In 1996 Chris started his professional life as a Motorcycle Mechanic and Custom Motorcycle Builder. He worked for the next six years in Independent Shops and Harley Davidson Dealerships before creating Vendetta Custom Motorcycles in Seattle Washington in 2000. In 2004 Chris returned to Southern California and acquired the shop of old mentor George Christy combining the two labels to become American Vendetta Custom Motorcycles and Service.

Since its inception in 2000, the name Vendetta Custom Motorcycles has never faded from recognition. This earned Chris the road name Legend. In the fall of 2015 at the end of his last contract with Harley Davidson Chris Decided it was time. A new beginning for an unforgettable shop. Chris Hanes AKA Rev.Chris Vendetta has become Legendary and so has Vendetta Custom Motorcycles. In November of 2015 Legendary American Vendetta was reborn in New York City.

If just building really cool stuff was not enough since 1996 Chris has been equally dedicated to the charity aspect of the motorcycling community doing motorcycle event management for events all over the United States raising millions of dollars for Hospitals, Cancer Research & Support, Veterans, and First Responders. Chris currently serves in an advisory capacity for the 9/11 memorial “Run for Richie” and Rocking the Road for a Cure.
