    i began my career in motorcycles after graduating (in 1994) from the american motorcycle institute (AMI) with harley davidson certifications. unexpectedly, i became heavily involved in professional ¼ mile motorcycle racing and became the crew chief for drag racing legend rickey gadson (1995 to 1999). i primarily built and tuned motors for the prostar 600cc supersport and the 750cc superbike classes. after my tenure with team kawasaki/muzzy i continued pursuing a passion for performance and worked at the cycle shop in philadelphia from 2000 to 2005 where I further developed skills by working with Carl Stieffenhofer. in 2006 i returned to my roots and opened w.a.c. cycles, focusing on bringing new levels of high performance to american v-twins.
since 2013 i have served as a professional technical advisor for the mirock, idbl, virginia motorsports park, atco raceway, and starting in 2018, the xda points series held at the maryland international raceway. 



i was born with a love of anything that goes fast, engines, and their ability to move us at incredible speeds.  one day i wandered in the door of wac cycles and asked will king if i could spend my free time there as an apprentice. it was here at wac cycles, i discovered a love for harleys and anything else with two wheels that goes fast. i decided to attend wyotech in daytona, will king’s alum. i studied and graduated with honors as the president of the eagle technicians with certifications in harley davidson and as a member to the national technical honors society.  
joe's hunger to learn coupled with his generations inevitable influence on the future of the motorcycle industry is an important asset here for us at wac cycles.
