Adventures of a Shop Girl
Hey everyone, this is Janelle…newest contributor, and new pal/rider with the guys here. I’ve been riding for about a year and a half, as long as I’ve had my 1971 cb350. A couple weeks ago, I decided I should finally start learning about my own bike, and the vintage cycles that I love. I hit up Adam Cramer at Liberty Vintage, and just like that I am the new shop girl there! I am totally stoked to learn everything I can about old cycles, especially since my own leaves me stranded sometimes…how can I stay mad at her though?
So, I was thinking that there might be some riders out there (maybe girls?!!!!) just getting into riding or vintage bikes, that like me, are eager to learn more. I’m gonna share some of my motorcycle shop weekends with you while I’m doing it. I hope to meet more of you on rides this summer.

Seat is finally 100% done. Took about 2 months from conception on paper to finished product. It was my first time doing metal stuff like this. The seat def has some minor imperfections… but it has character. I designed the pad, and had someone upholster it for me.
