Portrait: Shea Nyquist

Shea Nyquist is a BMXer turned chopper builder. If the name looks familiar, it's because Shea's brother is Ryan Nyquist of X Games fame. 

Shea builds some crazy contraptions, and he's not afraid to ride them. 

As you can see, Shea is a fan of the Asian powerplant.

That being said, don't think for a second the man can't or won't build an old Ironhead when the mood strikes him.

Shea doesn't follow any guidelines regarding style, power or geometry. Instead, he follows his heart… that's what Napoleon Dynamite did, and look where it got him. Keep the good times flowing, brother…
