Sucker Punch Sally's Owner Christian Clayton dies at 40

A sad day in the motorcycle world, on 9/9/2011 Christian Clayton from SuckerPunch Sallys passed away unexpectedly in his sleep at home in Phoenix, Arizona.  He was 40 years old.

Christian loved bikes, hot rods and guitars.. pictured here with his Fender Telecaster on a SPS Traditional.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

Created in 2002 by custom bike builders Jeff Cochran and Donnie Loos, Sucker Punch Sally was the first limited edition manufacturer in the industry to specialize in old school stripped down bobbers and choppers sold at reasonable prices.

Geri and Christian Clayton joined the company in 2003, moved operations from Ohio to their manufacturing facility in Scottsdale, Arizona and later became co-owners of Sucker Punch Sally Motorcycles. 

In this photo, Christian is pictured with his good friend, SPS artist Sara Ray.

R.I.P Christian you will be missed...
