After seeing images of Rick's bike from his trip to the One Moto Show in Portland, OR, I knew I wanted to see more. Having photographed him in his garage before, I knew it was as easy as a phone call to set it up. I love shoots like this, where it's as much about the shoot as it is hanging out, shooting the shit, and generally catching up with each other.
This bike is impressive. It started as a few tubes of steel and a chalk drawing on the garage floor. Many months (years?) later, after having bent tubes to make the frame, cut angles to get the fork perfect, rolled every inch of metal to make the tank, and I'm sure a few choice swear words, it was finished. And then, in 2017 Rick set a speed record at Bonneville at 69.258 MPH.
