When my son Josh is not working his hi-tech job as an encrypted communications expert…. he builds custom choppers. This year he was asked to participate in an international contest and compete for the Peoples Champ title. They selected 25 bike builders from several countries and after a number of months narrowed it down to the final 6 including Josh! Last weekend the final votes were tallied and Josh was declared the winner! He is now the reigning Peoples Champ builder! Josh was then invited to show his bike alongside all the pro builders at the Born-Free show which is sponsored by Harley Davidson and is the largest, most prestigious bike show in the world where he was announced as the winner of the Founders Pick award!
I helped out a little with some hand engraving and scroll design for this chopper project. We had a great time working together and his bike named “Mantis” turned out absolutely beautiful as you can see in the pictures. So proud of my son!
