Barnstorm Cycles

Jake Cutler is the co-owner and operator of Barnstorm Cycles in Spencer, MA.  With parents who took their wedding vows whilst sitting upon a chopped Triumph, Jake was doomed to be a motorcycle enthusiasts from the day he was born.  In 2004, he and his father Doug decided to take their small home shop, located in a old re-purposed barn, and open it up to the public.  They have been building, riding and wrenching under the name Barnstorm ever since.  Jake has spent his entire lifetime getting his hands dirty simply because it's in his nature, but when forced to label, fancies himself a problem-solver and/or fabricator over all other titles.  When he is not at the shop, Jake likes to spend time with his wife Amy, his family, his three dogs and of course, riding motorcycles.

Benefit show for Sarah Winslow

On August 1, 2015 the lovely and talented Sarah was hit by a drunk driver while on her motorcycle in Rhode Island. VERY luckily, Sarah's injuries were not life threatening, but she did suffer a number of broken bones (femur, shoulder, pelvis, among others) and a significant soft tissue injury on her thigh. She has had numerous surgeries, a very long hospital stay, and will be sustaining future time in physical therapy/in-patient rehab to get her up and moving around again. So far folks have been very generous with a gofundme account (, but to take things a step further to help her out with some of the financial burdens that befall the severely injured while in hospitals/rehab, AND to give an awesome person a fun time out with friends, we've put together a kick ass show at Cuisine en Locale, in Somerville, MA on 10/10/2015.

Landspeed Knuckle:Part 1

So, I bought the 41 some 6-7 years ago (maybe more?!) from my good friend PQ as a box of parts and over 2 years he and I built it back into a powerplant.  From there she lived in a simple rigid set up that I rode often for most of those years, clocking  well over 20,000 trouble free miles.  Over that whole time period however, I never actually finished the bike.  It was always just a temporary deal, holding me over you could say, until I felt I was ready for the next leg of the journey.

Well, after letting this poor lady sit for almost a whole year, I decided it has been long enough.  I'm starting in on this Landspeed dream while I can!

I'm not really 100% sure of the scope of the project just yet, and there are a ton of details yet to be determined, but I'm starting,

Today I am setting some goals for this project, to hold my self accountable.

1) setting a deadline of one year from yesterday to have a running & riding prototype.  If i'm doing it, I want to push my limits, and I want to do it right.

2) While the quest is indeed about speed, for me it also just as much about actually showing up to the salt flats with a 100% purpose built bike and running it.

3) Enjoying the whole process.  So much of my life is motorcycle related, but 99% of it is work-for-clients.  I do not want to stress about this project, no matter what.  I work on my own stuff because I can, and because I love it.  I welcome this as an opportunity to re-connect with my machine.  Things will not always go as planned. I will have problems. But I love problem solving, and look forward to solving issues they arise.  

4) The experience as a whole will be new for me. The locations, the faces, the history, it's all territory I can't wait to become acquainted with.

 The old set up...
 Saying goodbye
