Interview with Jeremy Cupp

Interview With Jeremy Cupp at BikerMetric… Cupp is the mastermind behind LC Fabrications of Grottoes, Virginia.

TR: When you started, did you plan on fame, fortune, or just enough to own a clean home while providing for some hot babe and the kids you made?

JC: Ha Ha… no. Fame and fortune equals less time to work on bikes, which is the whole point; to make an honest living and feed the kids by messing around with bikes all day. Can’t think of much more a man could want.

TR: Oh man. When I get a tat I’ve meditated upon it for six months. That’s my motto. Except for the times I didn’t. You wanna build a bike for me? I know exactly what I want! Okay. End of the world prophecy prep time. It’s December 20th, 2012. Are you loaded with canned food, ammunition and alcohol, or do you think numerous prophecies of the world’s end on the following day are bull***t?

JC: Well, the real truth of that matter is that no one shall know the day nor the hour, but if you fools are right and Dec. 21 is the day of Armageddon, me and mine will already be gone! Besides, ever stop to think that when the Aztec calendar guy is making this thing for thousands of years ahead of time that he eventually decided, “screw it. If they make it that far they can finish it?”

But Wait, there is more…

The Old Black is the latest build out of the LC Fabrications’ garage, it was designed and built by Jeremy Cupp this year to compete at the AMD World Championship in Sturgis. He decided to really take Sturgis back to its hill climbing roots and so he set about building a hard-tail, twin-drive modified Harley-Davidson with a springer front end and a classic, chain-wrapped rear tire. Results? He took 2nd place with this wicked-cool custom sled.
