HOW IT STARTED
Keith “Bandit” Ball, Bikernet.com President, and Bob Kay, designer, created a line of Genuine Riding Apparel™ for cruiser, chopper and bobber riders. The JAK Shirts, Jackets and Vests are known for their innovation, functionality and quality craftsmanship.
Our goal is to provide our with outstanding products that look good on and off the bike. And most important, they are utilitarian. Our JAK Shirts, Vests and Jackets are the Swiss Army Knives of the leather crowd. They provide utility, security and a bit of whimsy.
Our other team members have distinguished records in Powersports and together as a team are creating an exceptional leather apparel company called 5-Ball Leathers. Here at 5-Ball Racing Garage you will see products from across the country and from artists that we get excited about. Each team member and company that we support is an integral member of the team.
The 5-Ball Team
Our team is made up of enthusiasts in the motorcycle industry. Our experience runs deep as Bandit and Bob Kay have both been working and building reputations in the industry for over 30 years.
