Noise Cycles humbly churns out a wide variety of finely-crafted, interesting motorcycles. While many builders or shops have an indentifiable format, Scott "T-Bone" Jones' style is more flexible and he has broad range that shows both craftsmanship and diversity. His black gennie Shovel won Best California Bobber and Best in Show earlier this month at the David Mann Chopper Fest in Ventura, CA. That machine is luxurious in detail and was never without a crowd around it at the show. Meanwhile, this understated beast sat quietly in front of the Noise booth. In a sea of metal flake peacocks it's simplicity made it a standout. The fact that it has a contemporary (by our standards) and reliable power plant that's often over looked by today's top builders made it even more interesting. Why not? Evos are plentiful, fun to ride, and as this bike proves - they make great donors for custom bikes.
