Hardcore says, “We also make it more appealing both size wise and to the eye. We finish off by helping club management build a stable and productive staff to ensure a successful club venture.” Big Dog Iron Customs Division consists of the motorcycle building company of Big Dog, and as Hardcore explained, “We design and build custom hogs of all types.
