Does that motorcycle on your website come with gas and does it include free shipping. Yes, that happens.

Idols/Mentors

My late mother would be my mentor... she was an inspiration to me and the most gentle, kind-hearted and giving individual I have ever known.

Jesse James would have to be an idol as well. Having known him personally and spent some time around him, I greatly admire his I don't give a f@&$ attitude and the guy is by far one of the most skilled craftsmen of the modern generation. He has paved the way for many bike builders over the years and proves that hard work and attention to detail will always prevail. That and an above average skill set always helps!

Tell Us A Little About Yourself

I was born into a second generation auto parts and machine shop business. I grew up on a family homestead/ranch in the rural parts of Northern California and spent my time either in the garage working on race cars or terrorizing the local roads and land on my motorcycle. My childhood dream was always to make it in NASCAR and though the talent was there, destiny and the shallowness of my pocket book would prove otherwise. I did, however, fulfill some competitive dreams when I raced Supermoto bikes in my late twenties. I was fortunate enough to line up against some of my childhood heroes and those are memories I will hold for a lifetime.

Finding myself directly involved in an industry that is essentially part of my DNA, I receive great satisfaction spreading my passion and knowledge to individuals that share in the same hobby that has made me who I am today. My hobbies outside of motorsports include hunting, fishing and golf but any mention of horsepower, will surely grab my attention.
