Performance Machine (PM) began manufacturing custom motorcycle parts out of a small shop in Paramount, CA in 1970. An inherent talent for machining and fabricating combined with a passion for motorcycles has always been the driving force behind Performance Machine.
Performance Machine begins to manufacture aftermarket front-ends for Harley-Davidson and custom brake systems which included dual action cast calipers, a PM Master Cylinder and cast iron discs. Something PM liked to call "Stop-Fast Brakes" in the 1970's.
Performance Machine starts to manufacture custom wheels for Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Early custom PM wheels included the Morris Mag 7-spoke, the Invader 6-spoke, and Mitchell Spun Aluminum Wheels.
Performance Machine improves braking systems with CNC machined billet calipers. Using aerospace grade solid aluminum bar, PM created the strongest, most powerful brake caliper the industry has ever seen.
Performance Machine enters racing to test and prove parts - what better battle-ground. Racing legends like Elmer Trett, Jim McClure, and Scott Russell all took to the track equipped with PM products to torture them under the most strenuous circumstances possible.
Performance Machine improves wheel manufacturing with bolted billet & fusion wheel processes.
Performance Machine continues to lead the industry with revolutionary new products; Forged Billet Wheels and a complete line of Contour products including hand and foot controls.
Performance Machine develops the RSD brand with the "Art of Function" philosophy. The RSD brand was created as lifestyle brand to satisfy the rider who demands aggressive styling but is never willing to compromise function.
Performance Machine designs the industry's most innovative wheel finish – dubbed Contrast Cut. This trademarked finish forever changed how we look at custom motorcycle wheels.
Performance Machine acquires Xtreme Machine to expand PM's product offerings to include more radical product designs for a slightly different kind of motorcycle enthusiast that desires an "Xtreme" design.
Performance Machine currently operates out of a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility complete with a testing lab. PM continues to set standards in the motorcycle industry with everything from design, testing, manufacturing, and secondary operations performed in-house in order to maintain superior quality.
Never wanting to rest in success, the PM product developement team is always looking to push the boundaries and strive for creative innovation. Practicing this philosophy for over 40 years is our cornerstone for being the best in our industry. And so the Contour Collection wheel portfolio was born.

The famous PM factory Big Rig rolled out to hit the motorcycle rally circuit in 1995 as the first display tractor-trailer of its kind in this industry. It was a big statement of how our brand was the leader in the motorcycle aftermarket. Thousands of miles and hundreds of events later, PM’s Big Rig is still a statement for the leading, iconic PM brand. But for this year the Big Blue passes the baton to a fresh new Kenworth® to run the rallies for the 2016 PM BE ONLY ONE Tour.
