Combustion Industries was borne out of an OCD style obsession for all motorbikes.


CI is a one man shop, owned by Michael Bates, an industrial designer with 20 years of product design and manufacturing experience covering a wide range of industries.  

Michael's product and motorcycle influences are mostly all-American; including the muscular aesthetic of 60s musclecars, the timeless qualities of classic hotrods and tools, racecars and ruggedized offroaders, and even science fiction.

If you are interested in collaborating on a design or a full build ; contact Michael.

We're located in Stillwater, MN but it's quite easy to communicate screen to screen over the web.
