It all started with bicycles when I was a kid. I used to spend hours tricking my bicycle and testing the “improvements.” I do have some scars from that era.

My first motorbike was a 1980 Honda CT70 and that planted the seed for me.

As a teenager, ride dirtbikes on my time off and did some amateur racing.

I was always riding or fixing something with a motor in my teen days.

In the late 80’s I decided to travel from Buenos Aires to Florida, I bought a single cylinder Kawasaki 650 Enduro and I rode across the U.S. to California by my self with no GPS, no cell phone, limited English but with a big smile in my face.

Over the years, I have owned many different styles of bikes, mopeds, dirt bikes, enduros, speed bikes, Harley’s, etc, etc.

One night searching for rides on eBay, I found some of my early rides listed and it brought back memories of all the good times and I decided to get a few, fixing them up and after 13 years of collecting vintage bikes, here I am.
