Mike: Old School

I come from Houston Texas originally. I moved here about 11 years ago. I’m a fabricator and motorcycle builder. We build hot rods as well. Learned old school, got old school values. My grandfather actually taught me everything hands-on. So I work with my hands, that’s our tool. We have a lot of changes going on with our business. The motorcycle that we put seven years into building all the parts for has gotten canned, they pulled the plug. So all the money and time and effort we spent building parts is now gone. We’re having to revamp and diversity and build, which is exciting because we don’t know what’s around the corner. We’re going to go back to our old school roots, building hot rods and trucks. There’s a lot of change coming. I’m looking forward to it.
