East Bay Speed & Custom
East Bay Speed & Custom is a Concord, California hot rod and custom body and restoration shop run by Brandon Flaner. Established in 2012, the shop has already grown a reputation as Northern California's Early Ford Hot Rod and Custom Specialists.
Grandpa Bob was a major influence in Brandon's life as he was growing up. In the early 1950s Bob Flaner was a member of The Road Knights of Walnut Creek. He was also a founding member of the Early Ford V8 club, and Brandon used to ride along with his grandpa as a child, learning as much as he could about the art of hot rodding.
After graduating from Wyotech, Brandon landed an apprenticeship at Darryl Hollenbeck's Vintage Color Studio. He worked for Darryl for a full decade before he, with support from grandpa Bob, decided to open up East Bay Speed & Custom in 2012. Brandon was 28 years old when he finally took the leap, and from day one his only mission has been to build and restore traditional hot rods.
