With its roots dating back to a garage in Hawthorne, CA, former pro class racer Don Emler’s Flying Machine Factory is steeped in a rich history and heritage that lends it an authenticity and credibility not often found in motorsports.
Combining his early childhood passion for tinkering, with his love of racing and natural ability for making things faster, Don transformed a local custom modification hobby into what is now known as FMF – the premiere manufacturer of 100% American-made exhaust systems for motorcycles. Widely acknowledged as one of the early pioneers, Don was catapulted to mainstream success, but never lost sight of where he came from or his love of the sport.
Since 1973, FMF has been actively involved in the racing community and committed to providing access across all levels of the sport, while continuing to maintain the level of innovation necessary to keep them at the forefront of the field. It is this unique history that not only gives the brand a timeless nature but also the contemporary relevance necessary to appeal to spectators, enthusiasts and professionals alike.
