"You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do."
-Henry Ford (1863 - 1947)

Scot's career as a builder started early, he built his first bike at the age of 12, chopping his Schwinn to add a long fork, stretched frame and huge headlight.

He honed his legendary fast pace riding dirt bikes, ski racing and, in the 80's, representing the United States on the national cycling team. Top-level discipline, teamwork, dedication and an appreciation for technology were the results.

Scot kept with the skiing and cycling, moving into product development, technical support and sales in the ski and bicycling industry, working with Nordica, Echelon and Specialized. But when his wife, Mercedes, was diagnosed with terminal cancer it brought everything into sharp focus and he decided life's too short not to do what you love. He chucked the high paying job to fulfill his real dream-to build cutting edge, high performance custom bikes.

Scot's background brings a unique twist to his bike building. The cycling industry emphasizes comfort and fit, something he integrates into the bikes he builds-what good is a screamin' bike if your feet don't reach the pegs? The ski and bike industry also uses the most advanced forms of metal technology and new materials, which creates new and different possibilities for perfecting the process of building custom motorcycles.

"It's all about invention, pushing the envelope," Scot said. "Getting the highest performance and the highest level of design and then creating something that's never been done before."

"A little rebellion now and then is a good thing."
- Thomas Jefferson

"Forget Mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you're going to do now and do it. Today is your lucky day!"
-Will Durant
