FIGHTING FOR YOUR FREEDOM WAS THIS LOWRIDER’S FIRST PRIORITY
Growing up, Jesse Hernandez was surrounded by a family with an affinity for church and lowriding.
It’s a situation that many of us are all too familiar with; it was his dad and uncles who would always be wrenching on the latest and greatest of that time. From '63s to '74s, G-bodies to bikes, being surrounded by the lowrider lifestyle let him know early on that he was going to build one for himself.
But fresh out of high school his passion for lowriding took a back seat to his desire to serve his country, so he wound up enlisting in the Marine Corps. Soon, those days spent in the garage were replaced with infantry training—some 16 years and four combat tours later, things have changed. Now in retirement, he’s not sitting back to watch life pass him by. He’s taking the bull by the horns and finally building the cruiser he had always wanted, which came by way of an '06 Harley-Davidson.
