THE ART OF MAKING HOLES

Over the past few months I have been asked several hundred times what made us build such a bike. After attending Sturgis in 2002 I had seen many motorcycles that were incredible. Seeing these outrageous bikes changed and influenced the way I build today.

The type of bike that drew my attention most was the Hubless motorcycle. I returned several times to where the bikes were being displayed just to see peoples’ reactions, and to ponder how it all functions. After literally sitting on the ground and staring at the bikes over several beers, I heard someone say “Oh that’s stupid anybody can build that”, not having to look up at them I knew by the new HD bandana tied around their new HD boots, they had no idea what goes into a free design of a bike nor what a true rider thought or dreamt. This started me on a quest for more information for what it really took to build your dream bike. I searched all the builders who had hub-less motorcycles and wanted to see how they were constructed, and learn more about the good, and the bad of this concept.
