I built my first motorcycle in 1975, while attending trade school. While others were working on lawnmower motors, I found myself putting together an Indian and a Triumph. Since that time I have been very active in the motorcycle world. I've owned motorcycle businesses and worked in several shops, I've attended rallies and judged bike shows and I've done several custom builds including first place show winners. Whether I start out with a pile of rusty parts or start with brand new parts each project is rewarding. Here are some photos of my accomplishments and building projects. My recent projects have been centered around Bonneville racing, and setting land speed records there. I enjoy building antique, metric and domestic motorcycles, and then entering them in different classes and racing them at Bonneville. I have a couple of motorcycles projects I am currently working on for land speed record attempts in the future.
