Rev. Jim Goodrich –
Preachers Hotrod Cycle Design
If Moses is remembered for parting the sea, Rev. Jim Goodrich will be remembered for parting the iconic Cafe Racer ideals with the completion of his RC Engineering Cobra Motor powered CB750 salt-flat racer comprised of Honda and Harley Davidson go fast parts all crafted by his hands in his private workshop. Having been around motorcycles and all things that go fast since he was 8 years old, Rev. Jim has established quite the following and a cache of knowledge when it comes to fabrication, design and engineering. Preaching the religion of speed he lifts his cane to the sky every day in the hopes of guiding the lost and wayward flock that is the modern youth in the motorcycle community.
