RIDER: Jonathan Weisner

Im a gearhead, motorhead or whatever you want to call it. I have been fascinated with cars, trucks , and bikes since I was a kid. I have always veered towards the old school style, ratrods, but I also have a love for new tech and modern ideas that push the boundaries of the custom culture to new places. I really got the ideas for this bike you see here from a car show I went to with my wife Nicole. I saw an old chevy nomad, that just caught my eye. It had a sort of stock look to the exterior, and you could see the performance upgrades very subtlety all over this thing. I knew I wanted to keep a sort of stock look to the bike, with an old school style paint job. I wanted to have the performance detail as well. When I started , I knew I wanted to upgrade the suspension , brakes, and drive line. I wanted to have an almost flat tracker style bar set up, cause that’s what I like. I also knew that I wanted to change the headlight and front wheel size to give a more aggressive look. The Disco purple hubs, were my way of adding some detail to the bike without being too much.  I guess I was going for a look and style of an old race car that someone had made street legal. The performance is coming along as well. The new motor will be put  in over the winter, as this bike is my daily ride. Did I mention that it also has over 124k miles on it. So in the end I wanted a hotrod themed softail, and I feel that’s what I ended up with. I know that at first I wasn’t sure about how all the parts and styles I wanted would work together, but I love the end results.
