History
1970s STAYING AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION
1980s RANDY STEPS UP

Other companies began to offer high performance
rockers arms, but Harland Sharp had a 20 year development advantage. Plus, he continued a dedicated focus exclusively
on rocker arms. The products winning reputation at the track resulted in non-stop demand for additional rocker arm products from Custom Speed Parts.

Harland responded by offering beefier bodies, bearing journals
and trunions. His precision product enhancements, including wider rollers, continued to increase horsepower and reduce friction. The professional production staff grew.

Harland’s nephew Randy Becker, who had grown up
working side-by-side with Harland, became production
manager. Randy initiated new ideas for product
development and manufacturing to Custom Speed Parts.
By this time, Harland was transitioning the day-to-day management of Custom Speed Parts to Randy.
Production was running smoothly and the business
continued to grow. Sadly, Harland’s wife Mae passed away.
Only 6 years later, Harland passed on too. Randy took on
full-time management and his leadership continues to drive
new ideas and higher goals for the company.
