“My name is George Blade Jr., a builder/welder/ fabricator. Father of two gorgeous children, I am devoted to family, hard work, and building a better life. Grew up in Cleveland, OH all my life. Inspired by the phrase "unbuildable" is what feeds my creativity. My goal is to push to limits of design and build the some would say unbuildable machines. My Cleveland based company Go Boy Customs is owned and operated by me and all my machines are built by me. I started this dream in my garage about 5 years ago building custom cars and bikes with my dad, who passed a couple years ago, I must continue to push the envelope of creativity and design. I just love the "wow" factor.”

He is also well known around town for various custom works requested from consumer so keep a look out for this rising star.
