AFT Customs to premier newest custom "Kemosabe" at the 2010 LA Calendar Motorcycle Show July 18th

Custom Honda Bobber Built and to be Piloted by the ATF Models for Bonneville World Record Attempt

**Long Beach, CA, May 1st 2010 **- Reigning LA Calendar Bike-Building Champions, AFT Customs, with owner/designer Jim Giuffra and his AFT spokesmodels (, will again use this year's LA Calendar Motorcycle Show to premiere their latest custom-built motorcycle "Kemosabe". After the Calendar Show the AFT crew will head to the legendary Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah to participate in the BUB Speed Trials where two of the female builders, Sukhee and Shelby, will pilot the bike on world speed record attempts. Also helping with the bike build and events are models Cyndi, Sara, Malanie and Katy.

The AFT crew are no strangers to premiering new bikes at the Calendar Show, having garnered the coveted "Best of Show" award in 2008 with their Yamaha Royal Star-based custom "Er Head." Last year they returned with "LoLA," a 2009 Honda VXT1300 Pro Street custom to take 1st place in the Metric Custom class. After the Show their winning bikes were photographed by Calendar Show producer Jim Gianatsis for the Motorcycle PinUp Calendar, the 2011 edition of which premieres at this year's Show.

"Kemosabe means faithful friend in Comanche, explains Guiffra. "AFT Customs is all about our friendships. All the AFT Model Agency Girls are working together with me build this bike, just as they have with all our past Calendar Show bikes. We are like a family. We wanted our close friends in the Northern California custom bike-builder community to be a part of this build as well so that it represented the Nor Cal scene. The build is being fully documented and filmed for a upcoming TV show, which has been a lot of fun."

This year's build is a Bobber-style custom based on a Honda VT750 V-twin streetbike. Miller Welding came on board as a sponsor and sent an instructor to help the girls improve their TIG welding. Guiffra's aim with the AFT Model Agency is to supply the Motorsports Industry with spokesmodels who are knowledgeable in talking to customers about the products and companies they represent. Giuffra figures being involved in building some of the word's winning-est custom bikes, and attempting speed records at Bonneville certainly makes them qualified.
