It is with great pleasure that we introduce Customikes’ first official Dream Team Couple; Duncan and Mandy Burton. This Dream Team (literally;) will head up and represent your local Kustom Kulture in UK/ British Island territory. You have already seen many pix from them, spread thru our albums, the PBO and they are now stepping into the limelight to serve you all. Please welcome Duncan and Mandy Burton to Customikes Dream Team!!!
Here’s a little history written by Mandy:
Duncan and I met when we were 17 and 20 respectively and I had no option but to develop a passion for all things mechanical, lol.
Duncan has always worked on vehicles (although mainly on bodywork) and has his own business repairing/resprays and some mechanical work. In his spare time he enjoys fabricating lights/tables etc. from mechanical parts and I help with lending an artistic eye when needed!
We both have full bike licenses and motorcycles have always been a big part of our lives. Duncan used to race bikes on grass and sand when he was younger and achieved a third place in the British sand racing championships.
He is also my fountain of knowledge on all cars world-wide and a veritable encyclopedia of automobile facts and trivia.
I love all things arty which is where my passion for photography comes in. Have practised air brushing and quite handy at flames but never enough spare time to practise the pictures; however I do try to fit in some drawing/painting whenever I can.
Our family, especially our children (both now adults!) are the most important people in our lives and as our son lives in Texas we plan on a visit at least once a year .We had planned to see another car show sometime/ somewhere in the U.S.A next year and perhaps meet up with him for a road trip back; however he sadly organised the wrong week to get married haha and it doesn`t coincide with any major shows that I am aware of, but if you live in Texas (or within an achievable radius to Austin) and are willing to let me and my camera loose on your pride and joy then just let me know!”
Thank you Mandy and Duncan!! Welcome to our Dream Team!!!!
