Scott Jones is an American talented customizer who founded the studio “Noise Cycles” in California. It is strange that we never wrote about the work of American artist. I propose to consider custom Harley-Davidson Panhead, 1952, which brought Scott award for “Best custom” at the event “Born Free 5 “(one of the largest custom – competitions in the United States).
Indeed bike turned out unique. This is particularly apparent in small details, but the overall layout, aesthetics and production of motorcycle parts are very good.
Scott Jones learned customizing from a good school. During the 18 months he worked with Jesse James, honing their skills. Then he noticed Ian Barry, with whom Scott was working on a project known “Falcon Ten”. About two years Jones reworked classic British motorcycles, and January 1, 2012 opened his own studio.
Basically, pictures of motorcycle made by Jose Gallina, speak for themselves. However, I think it is worth saying a few words about the assembly of the motorcycle:
Engine HD EL Panhead, 1952, 88 ci (1442 cm3)
Frame Panhead (late model) with a pendulum
A pair of S & S carburetors
Aluminum fuel tank (made by hand)
Steel exhaust system
Many other craft unique items, including a traverse 41 mm fork
Brakes Yamaha Racing TD3: 270 mm drum Front
Rubber Excelsior 400-19 (front) and Firestone 550-16 (rear)
Sonny Boy Paint painting
Scott Jones is planning to visit the exhibition “Mooneyes Show” in Japan to compete with the best Japanese customizers.
