QUESTION – You do not have to have a huge shop, you don’t have to have a cnc machine, you don’t have to have a paint booth… But you do have world-class bike builds.

Interview Brian Schaffran

Owner Skidmark Garage

Interview with Brian Schaffran of Skidmark Garage - Wrenching, Drinking, Riding --- Repeat

Schaffran runs a non-profit garage, he doesn’t mean to…

COMMUNITY GARAGE - Working on your bike with a bunch of guys that are also working on their own bikes. Having a beer. Hanging out. Helping each other work on bikes. Going for a ride afterward.

It's about building our own little culture of tinkering with our old bikes - the camaraderie that is cemented once we overcome a hurdle - and celebrating each tiny victory along the way.

Owning and riding a vintage bike means working on it. Wrenching on that bike in good company is a win/win.

Biker Etiquette Questions

  • Iron 883 or forty eight? 
  • Can I ride my Razor Scooter on the highway?
  • Do guys notice if you put on 5 or 10 pounds? Or are they just concerned I have a heartbeat?
