British Customs: When did you start riding?
Jason Fragale: Outside of garage built mini-bikes, serious riding started at age 40 (when my maturity level started to match my pain threshold)
BC: What was your first bike?
JF: 1977 Yamaha XS1100 stripped and built to a cafe racer
BC: What is your background/interest in motorcycle customization? Family hobby, self-taught, trained pro, etc?
JF: My tinkering is self-taught, started with cars from early age (67 Chevelle keeps my bike company). I know just enough about bikes to be dangerous. Hurrah for the experienced wrenchers on YouTube to get me out of jams!
JF: I’m really into aesthetics and overall vision, keeping it simple but making it functional and comfortable to ride. All of it leading to a visceral experience.
BC: What things outside of motorcycling inspire you?
JF: The arts, power of nature, life experiences.
BC: What are your goals in the coming year?
JF: Drop off the grid with a long distance ride that never touches a main highway.
