Wrench Works

After meeting at Cycle Source's Big Mountain Run earlier this year, my pal Josh and I became instant friends, amazing how some things work out in life. He pulls into the parking lot of the Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley, NC where we were camping, and idles up right beside my bike and we start chatting. Since that day we have never missed a beat and along the route we have hatched some plans about future bike builds along with a parts line. As Josh will quickly tell ya he is a wrench and loves nothing more than to make a perfectly functioning machine run even better. As things progress within Rusty Knuckles he will become the go to guy for tech tips on engine modifications and mechanical reliability. In this regard, we figured now would be a great time for a sneak peak into what we have been plotting on. The parts line is going to be called Wrench Works and our logo is being filed for trademark as we are that confident with the name. We have a littany of parts that should be ready for the Smokeout next summer. We aren't going to produce the simple things either, that's just too easy. Our parts are going to be focused on the human factor of comfort and tightening up the mechanical reliability, stay tuned.
