when Burf and Tam combined their skills to realise their shared dream: to spend their days designing, building and riding bikes. In a nutshell Burf loves making stuff and Tam loves designing stuff.
Before going to college and university Burf was a young downhill racer that was breaking frames midway through the season. BTR Fabrications was built on the dream of building a downhill bike that would last a complete season of racing. After meeting Tam while working for K9 Industries, BTR Fabrications was born. While holding down full-time jobs BTR started making bikes in their spare time. Their evenings and weekends were spent in a shed building bikes; a shed that Tam would eventually live in for a year and a half.
From their humble beginnings and with an immeasurable amount of sacrifice BTR Fabrications is now recognized as making some of the most progressive steal hardtails available. The Belter is a pure downhill hardtail that is long, low, slack and as tough as nails. The Ranger was created for the first Dudes of Hazzard endure race, a bike that can climb, descend and ride to the pub afterwards.
