Over the decades of building cultural motorcycles that inspire others to push their talents and our own more, we’ve formed great relationships with our HCG family and previous clients.
As we continue to push our own ‘bar’, we are committed to advancing technology and implementing that into modern day motorcycles. Continue to check back in for updated technology, projects, and builds.
Below are some of High Compression Garage’s & Tommy ‘Clutch’ Creal’s previous projects over the years.
MINNESOTA WILD HOCKEY ORGANIZATION
(1 OF 2 BIKES)
What an awesome build, being in front of 20,000+ plus people on center ice, to the TV exposure and the team of help. The Minnesota Wild Bike #1 was built for a giveaway for a MN Hockey fan. This bike was built to perform, yet drawn in a few features that resembled the team. Take a look, and let us know how we did! More on this build can be found on YouTube.
FORMER VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA-JOE BIDEN
This build wasn’t fixed, set-up or finagled. This was LEGIT! We went off the cuff and had the opportunity to build Vice-President Joe Biden a custom bike. From the presidential seal emblem on the rear fender oil tank, to the amazing hand crafted tank this bike had VP Joe Biden flipping head over heels. We are pleased to say, we had a very happy client (Vice President).
What an AWESOME build. The LifeScience Alley bike was showcased at the National LSA conference in Minnesota. Clutch even got to speak at the healthcare conference-yikes! This bike ran completely on E85, showcased a purple velvet seat, and a modified the engine to perform better than ever. The pearl purple and gloss black made this bike snarl! As this bike sat 5” off the ground, the power and performance were unbelievable! We were super stoked about the power and the testing opportunities. E85 bikes are doable, if done right!
BLUE HORSESHOE TATTOO
With Blue Horseshoe Tattoo Parlors being on the East Coast, in the Virginia area, a beach cruiser style bike was only fitting. The BHT bike was fabricated and built to allow for comfort cruising along the shorelines, and had enough jazz to attract attention. Boy did it impress all the clients at the parlors.
From the smooth lines, to the extensive fabrication the Allstate Insurance build was one for the books. Catering the polished S&S engine, the bike had two 4 barrel Weber carburetors with a 24 piece handmade exhaust system. The Allstate Insurance bike traveled the country for 2 years with much success!
MINNESOTA WILD HOCKEY ORGANIZATION (2OF2 BIKES)
The Minnesota Wild bike #2 was built for comfort, and for our own keepings! This bike was built to resemble the hockey team and allow for us to promote the MN Wild around the town. The 100CI polished engine, to the 5 speed transmission had this bike scouting around the roads quickly!
Twisted Honor was a tough build. There was a ton of fabrication done to this bike and all done to perfection. A custom made hydraulic jockey shifter, to custom housings, custom tanks, and straight pipes are a few items complimenting this bikes appearance. But oh boy could it haul down the road! Look closer at the photo’s to find all the hidden details.
Oh boy! Clutch Creal’s controversial bike of all time, and yes there have been more. Convict was built to ride the country from tour stop to tour stop, showcasing an old school fashioned rough bike. With a shovelhead engine, 100 twisted spokes, black rims, a hand laced seat, “Convicted Yuppie Killer” rear decal and custom exhaust, this bike hit the spot!
GOVERNMENT OF MANITOBA
A bike made of bio-fiber, that’s unheard of! On top of that, a bike that was powered by E85 only! Well, the CIC bike was just that. A complete bio-fiber gas tank, fenders and a modified engine & carburetor for the use of E85 were the main ingredients to this bike. Not to mention the rad appeal this bike had on the road.
A sentimental build to say the least! Clutch Creal had developed this build in loss of his grandmother to cancer. He partnered with the Children’s Hospital to build out this bike with the patients. This bike had the most fabrication done to date at the shop. The battery was located in the left saddlebag, the oil bag in the right saddlebag, custom built fenders, exhaust, gas tank, front shroud, and the frame were all just a few items to this bike to make it standout. This build will remain close to our hearts.
Simple and clean! Sometimes when going gun hole on builds, it’s nice to take a step back and get back to the raw essentials. Hardcore had smooth lines, a comfort level that you could ride for hours on, and a little kick in the bottom end.
