DeBaise Bros Custom Cycles and Hot Rods was established in 1990 but their automotive roots go back much farther than that. Andy and Jimmy, the two brothers that make up DeBaise Bros., grew up building and racing cars in Wallingford CT and never left. With family owned businesses in their history, it was only a matter of time before the DeBaise Bros went and opened a custom shop of their own.
In the Early 70’s the Brothers teamed up with Steve Brooks and began there NHRA Drag Racing career. They raced everything from Full-Bodied Race cars to Rear-Engine Dragsters . While traveling the Circuit, the guys won a major Budweiser race and also broke the National ET record in the “A/D Dragster Class” at Epping N.H. After working on Race cars and Motorcycles in their spare time for a number of years, the guys decided it was time to go into business for themselves.
Andy, after working at and eventually owning Wallingford Spinning of Wallingford CT for over 30 years, decided to close the shop and open his latest endeavor, American Performance Products. Jim has over 35 years experience in working on and modifying everything from your daily driver to your high dollar show piece. Working at New Car Dealerships for nearly 3 decades, he is up to date with all the latest technology in the automotive industry. After leaving a local dealer in 1990, Jim decided to follow his life long dream and open the doors to DeBaise Bros. Garage and never look back.Discover More
