Custom chopper by Rick Fairless, Strokers Dallas

Custom Chopper By Rick Fairless, Strokers Dallas

Rick Fairless has a regular radio show on KRLD-FM in Dallas/Fort Worth: The Texas Hardtails Scooter Show. He now produces the show from his shop and video podcasts can be seen at his website. Rick has appeared on Discovery Channel's Biker Build-Off and SPEED Network's Texas Hardtails. Examples of custom and theme choppers built by Rick Fairless are shown in the book Choppers: Heavy Metal Art. In 2008, the William J. Clinton Presidential Center had an exhibit of bikes by famous custom builders, and two Fairless choppers, Coors and Bettie, were included.
Strokers Dallas Motorcycle Shop, Strokers Ice House Bar & Grill, and Strokers Ink Tattoo & Piercing Parlor are owned and operated by Rick Fairless. His 5 children, Steve, Louis, Chelsey, Lena and Liz are involved in the company operations as are his wife Susan (runs the office), his mom Sharon (everybody just calls her Mom), his dad Ocie, his brother Randy (big shot lawyer), sister Denise & brother-in-law Steve Bessler. Strokers Dallas opened in 1996, Strokers Ice House opened in 1998 & Strokers Ink opened in 2007. Little did Rick know that his Strokers “Empire” would soon become a World Famous motorcycle destination. Rick built his “Empire” with the belief that if you “Get up early, work hard all day, good things will happen.” So far so good! Rick works 13 hours a day, 8 days a week! Rick does not take days off. We are only closed 2 days a year – Thanksgiving & Christmas Day, & Rick actually works both those days. Figuring those hours, he makes minimum wage. Oh well, he’s happy & living his dream.
