54 Years of 2 wheelers Motorcycles

Still famous for shutting down the streets every year for whooping customer appreciation parties, and for annual Christmas parties benefiting local charities, 2 Wheelers represents the classic old-time bike shops.

Covered in parts, gear, and memorabilia from the old days, 2 Wheelers MC is a place to come for classic bikes; not just to get a rare part or a retro-style t-shirt, but to take a tour into a modern history of motorcycle culture and check out wildly creative custom choppers built from a master with his own unique eye for design and style.

Never bound to one specific trend and too hip to be “old school,” 2 Wheelers MC considers themselves “kool school” – their own eclectic mix of the old, the new, and whatever comes out of Arlin’s head.

You can pretty much always find Arlin, Donna and Dave at the 2 Wheelers shop – ready to tell a story, give you a lil’ bit of friendly shit, offer some advice on how take your bike to the next level, and hook you up with a unique piece of biker merch to show off at your next rally.

This place is now a destination to come and see: a blast from the past that no one makes it like anymore, so come on by!

We’re grateful to continue to serve the biker community after these 53 great years and hope you stop by to see it for yourself soon.


Arlin Fatland | 2 Wheelers


Being a lifetime collector of custom bikes and parts, Arlin Fatland decided to establish his own shop in 1970 because of the problems he had finding the parts he needed to fabricate his own original custom motorcycles. Over the last 50+ years, 2 Wheelers have worked on nearly every kind of project from stock Harley Davidson’s to entirely custom Bobbers, classic Panheads, Knucklehead Choppers, and Arlin’s Signature late ‘70s Arlen Ness Pencil Sharpener Sportsters.

“I like to demonstrate what’s possible to younger riders,” Arlin says. “We support all the local shows and take a variety of parts and frames as examples of what a young guy can build on a limited budget.”

Arlin’s current popular creations (Custom Bikes) include: a road racing Knucklehead with a custom 1942 motor, custom primary over belt drive and custom exhaust, a recently revamped 1965 road ready Panhead, a 1951 Chopper with all custom work and paint, and an 1967 XL Ness style Digger with unique gold plating and a springer frame.

As a trendsetter and legend in the motorcycle industry, Arlin always comes up with something new with each bike he builds. Arlin’s bikes have been featured in numerous motorcycle publications over the years including: Easyriders Magazine, In the Wind, Street Chopper, Europe Magazine, Freeway, Biker Zone and Bikernet, along with various books such as: Chopper Harley, Guide to Choppers, The Ultimate Guide to Harley Davidson, Harley People and Corbin Saddles with his Warbird XSR.

Arlin continues to come up with new custom build ideas and 2 Wheelers continues to be the go-to location in Denver, CO for anyone interested in rare and classic model bikes. Nowadays, with his Daytona location closed for good, Arlin focuses on providing advice and quality parts at affordable prices to motorcycle lovers with the goal of continuing to push forward chopper creativity for future generations.

“Young guys want to build old school bikes,” Arlin said, “so I try to provide frames starting at just $1000 and rollers to give them the basic platform at affordable prices.”

In 2020, at the 80th Sturgis Rally, Arlin was inducted into the Sturgis Hall of Fame, recognized for his exceptional work in the motorcycle industry.


Donna has been a craft-woman of leathers since 1972. She started off in Florida, making sandals and hand made leather goods and selling them at a store she owned in Daytona Beach. In the late 70’s Daytona Bike Week was beginning to become a biker mecca and creativity was a staple for the scene. This was also made popular by a generation of riders who really appreciated quality handmade goods. Donna knew leather was her choice material for bikers – great for protection from the road but also possible to tailor and totally customize for individual expression.

26 years ago, Donna decided to move to Denver to open up a brand new leather goods shop. Shortly after she joined Arlin and the 2 Wheelers MC crew where she focused her time working Sturgis and Daytona stores and learning more about parts riding. Donna enjoys the Rockies and meeting lots of great customers.

Donna says she and Arlin are “very fortunate to live the life we do, and do the life we love. It’s a great journey with adventures and friends.”

Dave John | 2 Wheelers

Dave has worked as a mechanic and sales at the counter for 2 Wheelers since the early days. Dave met Arlin when 2 Wheelers first opened their doors as a customer, finding the shop to be one of the only places in town he liked for buying parts for his own creations. Dave and Arlin became friends and would meet over beers to discuss their next custom creations.

One day, having lost his own mechanic, Arlin offered Dave the job and he agreed so long as they “stayed friends first and the work came second.”

They remained friends and have worked together for over 40+ years now. Dave also works at the Sturgis location when 2 Wheelers is open for the rally.
