  1. Jim has a degree in mechanical engineering from Florida Tech and has worked over 20 years with CNC machining. While Jim spends most of his time in the machine shop, he hopes one day to find time to finish a café style rebuild of his '79 Triumph Bonneville.

    How many years have you been at OCC? I've worked at OCC for nine years.

    What was your favorite bike build at OCC? The electric drag bike is my favorite OCC build. Even after delivery of the bike to Lawless Racing, I continued to support the bike in efforts to break the existing world record and continue to improve on it by making and refining parts and systems on the bike.

    What was your favorite prank? During the 2012 Biker Build Off, we PJD'd a junk car by "riveting it out." After leaving it at his shop, they redelivered it to OCC, but we were ready for them and egged the PJD crew as they drove into OCC. They left behind the original car and one that they had crashed into it. We took the PJD car and lifted it with a forklift on top of the original riveted out car, at which point I got into the bottom car and drove it onto a car trailer. We drove it back to PJD and crashed the double-stacked cars through his locked front gate.

    What would the guys say is your most annoying habit? I always have an answer for everything.

    What's the coolest thing about working at OCC? I love all the cool techy nerdy stuff I've gotten to do: flying a fighter jet and helicopter, firing virtually every weapon in the U.S. Army arsenal at Aberdeen, traveling to places like Alaska and Malaysia and getting to tour some amazing factories and military installations.
