Mark Atkinson is the founder of Speed of Cheese Racing where he builds some very unique, unusual, and bespoke motorcycles. Ever since Mark could ride on two wheels his passion for bikes has been burning rubber. From his Schwinn® bicycle to a Taco Mini-bike, and then a Yamaha YZ80, he has a life-long infatuation with motorcycles. Mark raced an old Yamaha RD400, a bike he bought from Ed Erlenbach who set world records on that bike. He has built street motorcycles most of his life, self-taught in fabricating, welding, and painting and most of his professional career has been machining hard core race car products. Just a few of his projects include electric motorcycles, race bikes, show bikes, café racers, land speed bikes, and more.
