Veteran-owned and operated, Motorcycle Dynamics Racing (MDR) is a complete manufacturing facility – featuring CNC machinery, frame fixtures, power benders, full welding capabilities, custom fabrication, motor machine work such as boring/porting, valve and head machines to name just a few. They are able to build complete bikes from scratch; in fact they have built over 30 bikes to date from the ground up: drag bikes, land speed bikes, off-road bikes, you name it. MDR has also built Bonneville streamliners with twin motorcycle motors that run 300+ mph.
Racing is clearly in Randy’s blood be it ¼ mile, ½ mile oval, grand prix, enduro, desert racing or land speed racing. As one half of the Riches/Nelson racing team Randy has personally set land speed records each year for about the last 10 years. A family man with 5 boys and 2 girls, he and his oldest son once each set Land Speed Records on the same weekend. Two other sons have raced drag bikes and his wife Teri is a former NMRA class champion.
Randy was one of the founding members of MDRA and has been involved ever since. Started after both NMRA and LACR closed down, the goal was to provide a west coast organization for the racers. Randy's main occupation is Forensic Analysis of motorcycle accidents, this has him flying nationwide on an ongoing basis (as many 3 days a week) to testify in court cases. He’s also been a tech inspector for NHRA, AMA Prostar, NMRA and MDRA since about 1990.

Randy and his co-workers are excellent technicians and craftsmen. Moreover they are kind and thoughtful. It is truly a pleasure to work with Randy. MDR should be a model for other custom shops to study! -Ken C.
Randy went out of his way time and time again to help me get on my first Harley. He is one of the best minds in the business and I couldn't be happier with my experience. He is a treasure trove of knowledge and will undoubtedly know how to fix your bike, jet ski, land speed race... you name it he can fix it or build it. -Robert L.
Randy Nelson is "The Man". Anything that has to do with motorcycles and fabrication, you have arrived at your destination. Randy is a great guy, always willing to help and his knowledge is unsurpassed in motorcycles and metals. I do not bestow the honor of being called "The Man" lightly. Randy deserves and has earned my respect. -Larry H.
Randy Nelson not only runs a great motorcycle machine shop, but he's a cool guy and a motorcycle land speed legend. Check out the worlds fastest electric bike when you drop by! Or look at the trophy wall of his Bonneville Salt Flats pics. Awesome. -Paul C.
I have been looking for a place where to test my motorcycle in a dyno. Motorcycle Dynamics did a great job, and did it for about 1/4 of what other shops in San Diego do. Unlike the guys in San Diego, which are absolutely rude, these guys are nice and helpful... -Pedro A.
AWESOME place with awesome people, they can fix anything. -Garrett E.
