1940 Indian 640

At 69 years old, I’ve been riding on 2 wheels since I was 8 years old. My racing career began on 4 wheels, racing quarter midgets at age 5.  I love the challenge of building and riding a vintage bike on a difficult ride like this and am looking forward to it.  A 4 time veteran of the “Motorcycle Cannonball”, I think I have some idea what it will take to successfully complete this race.

I’ve been engineering, racing, building and collecting vintage bikes for over 40 years, and love the unique challenges they present. I have a handful of vintage bikes dating back to 1913, and have a couple modern bikes as well.
