What builders inspire you? If you were commissioned to carve the mount Rushmore of bike builders who would you put on it?

The late Indian Larry. I always liked his style of bikes and after meeting him in sturgis the year him and Billy Lane did the buildoff together, he was deffinately a great asset to the bike scene.

Denver Mullins for his style and innovation, Sugar Bear for some of the sickest front ends ever and Jessie James for the total craftsmanship he brings to the table

Rene, even as good of a fabricator as you are... I'm sure you are aware that none of us including artist live in a total vacume. To respect and be inspired but others is not the same as idolizing. I know your a big fan of the crazy orange style!

Since I'm totally ripping off his style for my next build, I'd say Bob Cecchini is an inspirational builder for me. And, since I'm a 70's Chopper kinda guy, I guess my Mt Rushmore would look like:

Denver Mullins - Bob Cecchini - Jeff McCann - Arlen Ness

Ben Hardy designed and built the bikes for the easyrider movie besides a shit load of other bikes Even sugarbear took alot of inspiration from him for his builds. Theres so many of the really old time builders it's tough to pick.
