In­ter­ro­ga­tion

Hot Bike - - Contents - HB WORDS: JEFF G. HOLT

“I KNOW IT IS VERY CLICHÉ, BUT I NEVER SET­TLE FOR MEDI­OCRITY, I NEVER QUIT, AND MOST IM­POR­TANTLY I AL­WAYS HAVE FOL­LOWED MY DREAMS.”

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I own and op­er­ate an in­de­pen­dent mo­tor­cy­cle shop in Stock­ton, Cal­i­for­nia. We do ev­ery­thing from oil changes and per­for­mance work to dyno tun­ing and ground-up full-on builds. Our pas­sion is re­ally any­thing to do with the H-D FXR. I ab­so­lutely love tak­ing old bikes and mak­ing them per­form just as good as any­thing that comes off the fac­tory floor to­day.

DE­SCRIBE YOUR­SELF IN THREE WORDS.

A big kid.

WHAT DO YOU RIDE?

A 1985 Har­ley-david­son FXRT.

WHAT IS YOUR GREAT­EST LIFE ACHIEVEMENT SO FAR?

Keep­ing a mo­tor­cy­cle busi­ness go­ing dur­ing the great­est re­ces­sion of our time.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIG­GEST RE­GRET TO DATE?

Work­ing more than I should and not tak­ing more trips on the bike.

WHAT OR WHO IN­SPIRES YOU?

I am in­spired by all of the in­no­va­tion in our cus­tom Har­ley com­mu­nity. It is an awe­some in­dus­try to a part of, which is full of tal­ented peo­ple who are do­ing what they love.

ANY LAST WORDS?

I know it is very cliché, but I never set­tle for medi­ocrity, I never quit, and most im­por­tantly I al­ways have fol­lowed my dreams. And guess what? Never in my wildest dreams would I have imag­ined that I would have a very suc­cess full bike shop and be able to sup­port my fam­ily by talk­ing to peo­ple about Har­ley-david­sons.
