Welcome To Black Kat Kustoms
Black Kat Kustoms was founded by Mike Ness, leader of the legendary Social Distortion, in 2003 to extend his creative passion and counter culture attitude to the world of clothes, cars and bikes. Ness is known for his music but his day to day life has long centered around hot rods, customs, bikes and choppers. Black Kat combines the same dissatisfaction with the mainstream that drew Ness to the likes of Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones and the punk rock movement with the hard work and sweat he's been putting into his garage for years. This is not a hobby, it's a way of life.

When Ness was attending Troy High School in Fullerton, CA, there was one thing that kept him in class and that was the chance to do graphic arts - he hated everything else. Now when it comes to designing and building, the Black Kat Kustomsapproach is just like he writes a song - totally self indulgent. Every detail of a Black Kat product reflects his personal ideals and rebellious spirit.
