We do it too, and there is no way we are going to offer a wheel that is not to our quality standards. The ultimate show is on the streets, and that is why bonspeed Wheels are “Machined Street Tough”© ABOUT BRAD Before founding bonspeed, Brad Fanshaw established Boyds Wheels/Hot Rods by Boyd as the aftermarket's industry champion through innovation & a successful public offering. Under the direction of Fanshaw, Boyds was one of the industry's most successful company's. During the period of 1991-1996 under Fanshaw's guidance as President/C.O.O., Boyds created some of the most notable trend-setting products and hot rods. The company also grew from a $500,000 (annual sales) hot rod shop to a $35 million publicly held corporation. Fanshaw achieved such success in the aftermarket industry by implementing many of the same techniques that he established in the 1980's success of Vision Street Wear. As a member of the executive management team at Vision, Fanshaw initiated what many now accept as commonplace in action sport youth marketing. It was many of these marketing techniques that led Vision from $10 million to $120 million in sales during the 5 years that he led worldwide marketing, advertising and promotion.
