    Where was this guy when I was young and building motorcycles! I think I feel the need to do one more.

    Great Video! It’s like going back in time when “things” were crafted by hand by people who were motivated by their work and their passion. This guys an artisan.

    Nothing like watching a Master and his young apprentice at work.

    I know Joe and he is an amazing talented guy. He did the sheetmetal on one of my bikes and it was soo smooth, it didn’t need any bodywork before painting.

    Please please, please, guys – put some safety glasses on! Craftsmen of your skills are too valuable to lose from being blinded by flying objects. Love the fender, peace to you and the little one.
