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

Combustion Industries is owned and operated by Michael Bates, an industrial designer with 20 years of product design experience and 80 or so patents covering a wide range of industries.  Michael's latest design work has been in the motorcycle /powersports industry.

Michael's product and motorcycle design is typically a blend of old school American influences. These include a variety of things. The influences range from historic influences of musclecars and hotrods, to science fiction.

These designs blur the boundaries between different types of genres and riding styles.
