Builder Buzz // Pat Patterson, Led Sled Customs

Fresh brewed in Ohio

Pat Patterson has built quite a name for himself and his shop Led Sled Customs out of Dayton, Ohio. It’s easy to pick out his builds in a sea of bikes at any bike show due to their unique and innovative style like no other. His innovation and craftsmanship have put him on the map as one of the country’s leading custom bike builders. Features in virtually every major magazine (domestic and foreign) and appearances in numerous motorcycle TV shows will attest to that.

Pat and Led Sled specialize in Sportsters, building custom complete bikes and producing an entire line of amazing parts to make Sportsters look cool and go fast. Pat has played a large part in making Sportsters cool again in the custom bike world.

Pat is self-taught and started Led Sled Customs because of his passion for motorcycles.
After working in his garage for many years on his own bikes, while owning and driving in a trucking company, he started to get requests from others to do custom work. These requests blossomed into what is now one of the most innovative shops in the nation.
