The Story of Steel Horse
Kristopher Winkler of Denver, Colorado has been in the audio business for eighteen years, but his love of motorcycles caused him to open Steel Horse Audio six years ago. It started when he was appalled by the lack of quality audio systems available for street motorcycles that didn't come with stereos from the manufacturers. "I wanted speakers on my own bike, which was a Midnight Star cruiser," Kris tells us. "I started doing research and couldn't believe the cheap crap that was being offered. I had straight pipes and none of the cheap audio systems worked for me."
Believing in the motto. 'See a need, fill a need,' Kris decided to put together the best American-made components for his own bike's audio system. "I wanted it to work and look decent," Kris says. "I tried everything and finally narrowed the components down to three systems that really work and sound great. "Those three systems fit almost any street motorcycle as well as ATV's, snowmobiles and boats."
