About Donowyn Rodricks

I have been riding for over 20 years, starting with scooters! I got delivery of my RE Himalayan last year on 18 June 2016, and within the first-week disaster struck when I got severely burnt on my leg, from the front portion of the silencer. I kept searching the market for leg/crash guards and couldn’t get one locally.

That’s when I contacted Fixwell Motors in Bangalore. I bought my first pair of leg/crash guards from them. They were wide, that every time I put my leg down I ended banging them. After using them for around a month, I got hold of a pair of guards from the RE delivery center. They were a disgrace on this bike and cracked in less than 10days.

That’s when I put pen to paper and designed what I wanted my crash/leg guards to be.

In my search for a fabricator, I eventually found one, who has been nothing short of brilliant. He churned them out for me, and from that day, I have designed some products all mainly for my personal use, but fellow riders on seeing have wanted the same…. So that’s where Donowyn Customs has come into being.

Following are the products that now I make:

  • Crash/Leg Guards
  • Saddle Bag Stays (Pannier Racks)
  • Knuckle Guards
  • Heavy Duty Headlight Grill
  • Front Mounting Rod (aux lights)
  • Foldable Back Seat Rest
  • Rear Tyre Hugger (with rod of SS and holding bracket)
  • Tail Rack

What sets me up from being different from the others in this market is that I make all my products of Stainless Steel, unlike the rest who make of MS or Mild Steel. All my Designs are Unique, and I don’t Copy from anyone however others have done from mine.
