My name is Jon Crush and I currently live in Miami, Florida.  I built this bike in Venice, California, where I was living for the past 12 years, but recently moved back to Miami to be near my family. I am 40 years old and have been customizing two wheeled machines since my brother and I got our first Honda 50 mini bikes at five-years-old. About a year ago I was laid off from an Aerospace Metals sales job and my girlfriend convinced me to start a custom motorcycle business and Crush Cycleworks was born.  The silver Triumph, named The Shining Twin is the first Crush Cycleworks product.  It is named after the twin characters in the Stanley Kubrick film The Shining and for the double entendre implications.  This also hints at the possibility of a sister bike to be built in the near future.

Let me start off by saying that I am honored to be writing up a couple of bikes in this issue built by two of the most genuine, positive, down to earth individuals I have met in my five years with Barnett’s. I have been privileged to know Dale Walksler (See ‘36 VEL in this issue) for a few years. But in the past few months I have also had numerous occasions to meet and chat with Lee Wimmer, owner of Wimmer Performance in Murrell’s Inlet, South Carolina, the builder of Shades of Blue…one class act.
