Below are the 12 semi-finalists and a link to download each of their renderings and sketches.
Alfredo Juarez
Alfredo has had a passion for motorcycles and their inner workings his entire life. Always tinkering and welding, he bought a MIG welder in college and started building his own tools and experimenting with metal fabrication. Now as a Mechanical Engineer for NASA, he continues to build custom motorcycles and tinker on his projects as a pastime and form of expression. Alfredo’s expertise is used on some of the most advanced projects in the world, and he wants to try his hand at a Scout Bobber.

Christian Newman
The devil is often in the details when you look at a bike Christian has built, and it’s all details. Spending his days engineering mining equipment, he has access to a huge variety of tools and the expertise to use them. While a couple of the bikes he’s built in the past have seen some media attention, he fits the spirit of this competition to the T. He wants to utilize the Scout Bobber’s dynamic chassis with some old-school custom components and raw metal fabrication.

Matt Landman
Matt Landman is an executive with one of the nation’s most notable jewelry companies by day, and a builder of old-school rigid choppers by night. Matt wants to build a vintage style tank-shift Scout utilizing original Indian components that have been modified and restored to fit his design. We’ll see if Matt’s experience in high-end accessories and detail pays off when it comes to motorcycle building.

Ben Davis
Indian Motorcycle’s history has inspired a lot of customs, and for good reason. When Ben looks at the Scout Bobber, his inspiration comes from vintage board trackers Indian Racing used to dominate the circuit many years ago. Ben wants to build a ridged frame from scratch and fabricate a Druid-style girder front end for a truly one-of-a-kind build.

Ross Latimer
Ross Latimer is a union pipefitter and welder out in Warrenton, Virginia. Spending his days welding massive pipelines, Ross spends his off-time working with much smaller and more precise pieces of metal. He wants to build a full drag-style bike in the spirit of pro-stock drag racers with an extended swingarm and chassis, as well as a long wheelie bar to help maximize the power to the ground.

PJ Grakauskas
As a family man from Ohio, PJ splits his time between work, his kids, and his 10×12 shed in the backyard. While all of his neighbors know he’s the guy to go to with your internal combustion problems, he’s been dreaming of the opportunity for a personal project like this for ages. For his build, PJ wants to build a race-inspired full-fairing Scout Bobber—making almost every component by hand, in-house.

Kyle Kaifesh
Growing up in a precision machine shop, Kyle was born for this level of work. When he was 14, his father started a custom bike build and Kyle was instantly enamored with the process—he knew he would have to build his own bike someday. Now with over 15 years of experience and a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Kyle has the skills and knowledge it takes to make it happen. For The Wrench, he wants to build an aggressive, short-fendered salt flats inspired Scout Bobber.

Ashlee Wegner
As a 16-year veteran of the Marine Corps, Ashlee is pulling from his military experience with a fighter-jet inspired Scout Bobber build. He is proposing a military flat green, stripped-down custom with Flying Tiger-inspired graphics. A one-piece seat and rear fender combination with a mini sissy bar and riveted details will help complete the aeronautic look.
cid:image008.png@01D3CFE0.D9720AB0
 
 
Brian Ragle
Nobody has ever accused Ryan of slacking off. As a father of three and owner of a financial firm, he started a small co-op garage for himself and a few of his buddies. As if all of that wasn’t enough, Brian wants to build a full custom-framed Scout Bobber for The Wrench. Judging by his design and current workload—he doesn’t plan on sleeping much.
cid:image009.png@01D3CFE0.D9720AB0
 
 
 
Jon Lefevers
Jon Lefevers is a full time painter from Jonesborough, Tennessee who is ready to get deeper into a new build for The Wrench. For this project, he wants to follow the American tradition of V-twin choppers with a heavily modified rigid-framed Scout. With a heavy workload of cars and bikes, Jon is going to have to work some late nights to pull of the most engaged build he’s ever attempted.
cid:image010.png@01D3CFE0.D9720AB0
 
 
Kyle Kompas
When it comes to fixing things and wrenching, Kyle isn’t about to pay someone else to do his dirty work. When he is done with work at the Royal Enfield dealership, he heads back to work on his passion projects: building motorcycles and restoring a mini-mansion built in 1892. For The Wrench build off, he wants to transform the Scout Bobber into a full adventure bike, capable of going long distances off-road and overcoming any obstacle.
cid:image011.png@01D3CFE0.D9720AB0
 
 
Cody Brouwers
With a handful of clean and often-ridden choppers under his belt, Cody Brouwers is heading into The Wrench with a different type of design—an aluminum faired cafĂ© racer. As a sign maker in Reno, NV, Cody has plenty of experience shaping metal, though never on anything quite like this. He aims to blend the classic styling of 70’s TT racers with the Scout Bobber’s modern performance for the ultimate custom cafe racer.
