Natalie Jackson To Pilot AFT Custom Motorcycle In Land Speed Trials
AFT Customs might be known as a world-class and award-winning metric custom bike builder, but with its partnership with racer and TV personality, Natalie Jackson, the two are set to prove that AFT’s custom bikes can actually perform. Jackson will pilot an AFT-built custom at various land speed trials.
“AFT Customs has proven that we build beautiful customs and components,” said Giuffra, owner of AFT Customs. “By aligning with Natalie Jackson, we will prove that the bikes also are track and race worthy. Natalie will help to round out our land speed racing team and add additional experience in racing and media training.”
Jackson is no stranger to competition, either. She began her racing career in 2003 by drag racing on quarter mile tracks on a Harley Davidson Night Train. Since then she has competed in numerous Northern and Southern California Regional Supermoto events and in March of 2005 won the Southern Supermotard-USA Lightweight Championship. Her experience both on a motorcycle and in front of the camera will no doubt bring exposure to this racing effort.
“Soon I will be involved with custom building-further rounding out my motorcycle experience,” said Jackson. “AFT Customs and I will work together to bring racing to the custom world and the custom world to the racetrack and land speed trials. It is a very exciting time for the two companies and the increased visibility of the alliance will help to benefit us and the many companies and products we represent.”
Details regarding the motorcycle to be built and its many components has yet to be released.
