Our services and mission.
RacingSmith's inception goes back further than the brand itself. The idea and name has been around for a few years. It was spurred from a passion to go fast and take anything and everything to the limit. I have been around bikes and cars since I was old enough to make the effort. My parents weren't really into them. There is no cool back story about helping my Dad in the garage and him teaching me to wrench. I just always wanted to be on, or around them.
Cars are a hobby/lifestyle that has and will always be a part of my life along side of motorcycles. You can't get either out of my blood, its like a sickness. After years of riding, track days, burnouts, wheelies and every other imaginable dangerous practice, I gravitated to the vintage side of things. I picked up a '79 xs750 and that's when it all came together........
I started in my garage like any other builder just for fun. It didn't take long we realized the home garage wasn't going to cut it anymore. So, as luck would have it we found a spot in Downtown Winston Salem, NC. We have since remodeled the front of the shop to serve our customers and create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere. With everything from dry goods to home brew we are sure you will enjoy your visit as much as our services!
