Greg grew up riding a Stingray bicycle on its back wheel for blocks at a time. He built his first chopper in the late 1970s, which he used to successfully attract Sandy – his wife of 38 years.
Greg’s passion for custom motorcycles led to collaborations with well-known builders Donnie Smith, Dave Perewitz, and Brian Klock. A member of the Hamsters USA custom motorcycle organization, Greg’s bikes have been featured in over a dozen motorcycle magazines worldwide. They have also appeared on the Discovery, History, and Travel Channels. One of Greg’s bikes, graciously autographed by Arlen Ness, is on display at the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame.
