About The Artist

Chris grew up surrounded by the Western Pennsylvania off road motorcycle racing scene, and started riding at an early age. From age 16 he had a MC license and has been riding on the street ever since.

In addition to being the Cycle Source Editor, he authored  “Custom Bike Building Basics.”

One of his latest ventures is the "do-it-yourself" demonstrations from Grease & Gears Garage, which is presented on-stage at major rallies across the US. You can catch up with Chris every Thursday night on Shop Talk at your local Cycle Source Facebook page.
