When it comes to being "hands on", REAL DEAL girls take those words to heart.  These ladies do not beat around the bush, they roll up their sleeves, and get to work on whatever task is in front of them. When they dream, they dream big... and when they go for it, they go for it all with the throttle to the floor. They are passion driven. They love creating with their hands. They thrive to run the wheel of almost anything that performs in any environment.

With dedication to mastering their craft, they follow their passion without losing sight of the world around them.  They don't just do things because it's cool, they do it because it's instinctual.  It's like breathing.  They live for style, being involved in the process, and getting out there to see what life really has to offer. 

Real Deal is a dynamic collaborative of legit automotive and industrial women who aim to empower and educate others regarding the positive impact associated with design, speed, and grabbing life by the balls. These woman ride, wrench, wheel, race, and are heavily involved in the practice from start to finish line. The vision originated from Jessi Combs and Theresa Contreras, two skilled ladies who are hands-on in their approach and leaders within the automotive industry carrying a strong desire to share their knowledge with the world.  

Jessi, with a degree in custom automotive fabrication, has impacted millions with her build skills on TV shows such as Overhaulin' and All Girls Garage, and holds titles from "Off-Road Champion" to the "Fastest Woman on 4 Wheels”.  Theresa, has combined her fine art education from Cal Poly and her hands on auto body shop experience to collaborate with some of the best in the industry, with her work gracing the SEMA show floors and cover stories of top magazines. Together they join forces with other real deal ladies who contribute their success stories and skills for the world to experience that everything is possible. 

The Real Deal ladies will be setting up shop onsite at BRO4 to offer some basic skills training in metal shaping, welding, pin-striping and leatherwork. This is the perfect opportunity to get some tools in your hands and try something new! These skills may help you build your next motorcycle, customize the one you have now, or expand your creative talents to new levels and open up possibilities. 

“We simply want to encourage and support women to get their hands dirty and truly feel that self empowerment, that ability to handle anything on their own, in any situation, no matter where they are. This in turn makes a difference in their community, large or small, purely through their never-give-up way of life rubbing off on others. It’s a very magical world we live in, we would like to share what that awesomeness is really like. After experiencing BRO for the last couple years and understanding the event is way more than just a bunch of moto babes camping in the desert, we found it necessary to be a part something so real and on the forefront of changing the way us women roll.”
