John Senopole's Spine Crusher

 

In today's ever-changing, fast-paced world, communication has moved from emails to direct messaging. One would go nuts trying to keep up with everyone's needs, myself included. Once in a while, you open a dm from a person who wants to share their latest build with you. I was thrilled when John Senopole reached out via our Facebook page. I immediately asked John to allow me to feature his bike and give us the lowdown on his shop, Cycle Passions, located in Freehold, NJ.

 

 

"I started Cycle Passions LLC in 2004. I was tired of the mega multi-dealership mentality, where the mechanic is nothing more than an assembly line parts-changer, and the customer is just another number on a key tag. I think back to when I was a kid and my parents would stop for gas at the local station. The attendant would come out; he knew your name, he washed your windshield, checked your oil, and sent you on your way feeling happy. That is how I think it should be. Your motorcycle is a very personal part of you, you and your bike deserve personal attention." As you see below, the Spine Crusher is pure class built by a person who takes pride in his work. If you live around Freehold, NJ, be sure to visit Cycle Passions. Enjoy!

Very cool, I've always liked sporty choppers.

In a world of Haifley Bros. hard-tails, a Paughco frame just makes me smile. Nice job.

Very clean. Even down to the wiring there's attention to detail.
