The Speed Merchant is a team of like minded guys, Brandon Holstein, Dan Begakis, and Mark Kawakami, who each bring something different to the table.  The goal is to bring our sense of style and function to the motorcycle industry, while keeping our manufacturing here in California.

Denver Dan always loved motorcycles, especially vintage/classic. The style and stories they have hidden within them have always compelled him.


Brandon has had a love of motorcycles ever since he was a kid. He started working in the motorcycle industry over 10 years ago.


Ever since Mark was a kid he has been attracted to art. Early on while in preschool, his teacher would let him go outside and paint in the hallways on the concrete floors with water and brushes and he has been creating art ever since.
