If you ever had the chance to spend some time with Scott “ T Bones” Jones, you come to realize that he’s a man of few words. He prefers to let his custom motorcycles speak for him and boy do they! Scott spends hours, sometimes days customizing a part to take his motorcycles to the next level. His building process is part mathematician and part madman as seen on his latest build, Sneak Attack. The craftsmanship was over the top, which helped him attain the Born Free 5 Best of Show award and the trip to Yokohama from Mooneyes. Business is booming at Noise Cycles but for Scott, family time is where it's at.
