Under The Hood: James Crowe

James is a laid back guy, soft spoken and very humble. Growing up as a ski and mountain bike kid in Whistler B.C., has certainly left it’s mark. James is constantly seeking adventure and pushing himself to advance. On this visit James was manufacturing some parts for a Canadian rally-car racing team, so his work is not limited to motorbikes. His love for motorcycles and travel have taken him all around the country, and every year he makes it to Bonneville Salt Flats for speed week. According to James, Portland is very similar to Vancouver, BC, but the custom motorcycle market is much bigger in the US, and it’s also cheaper to run this type of operation in the US. James works on bikes for various customers, always one project at a time with complete focus and devotion. If you catch him around town, most likely he’ll be wearing his red flannel shirt and sitting on an old air-cooled BMW boxer which he regularly uses to haul firewood for camping trips.
