Motorcycles and cars have been a passion of Josh’s since childhood and that passion helped him graduate from WyoTech’s ASM, Collision Refinishing, Street Rod and Advanced Street Rod programs over a decade ago. Right after school, Josh started working in high-end hot rod shops while building bikes on the side. After working hard to hone his skills he decided to start his own shop, Cry Baby Cycles and build motorcycles full-time. Over the past ten years, Josh has accomplished many things including several prestigious hot rod awards, bikes featured in The Horse Magazine, Cycle Source Magazine, Easy Rider Magazine, Revolution Magazine, Freeway Magazine, four-time invitee to The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show, Peoples Champ contender, Born Free Invited Builder, multiple awards at Sturgis Bike Week, two-time invitee to it’s ‘Concours d’Elegance’ show, two bikes featured in David Uhl’s paintings, Chopcult Tech Article contributor and featured in Wrench Against the Machine’s TV show. More recently, Josh was the lead fabricator and shop manager at Orange County Choppers. Now Josh is bringing all of his passion, talent and experience to American Metal!
