“The Mighty Motor is made up of a group of people from different backgrounds living in different cities. Although we are all great friends and have a common passion for vintage motorcycles, we love the diversity of ideas that we get out of working together. We strive to provide all original content.”
“We started to blog in 2011, inspired by street fashion photography and other vintage motorcycle blogs. We had an idea to combine the two worlds and show our audience the bikes and the people that ride, build, sell and love vintage motorcycles as much as we do. It has been a collaborative effort with the people that we meet and it has been a great year.”
Chris Chin: “The Mighty Motor co-founder. Born in Malaysia but grew up and still based in San Francisco. Entrepreneur with a passion for vintage motorcycles. First vintage bike was a 1971 CB350. It’s amazing to me that a bike older than me can run so perfectly. In 2010 Shaik and I landed on a few of old bikes (1972 BSA Lightning, 1966 Triumph Bonneville, 1974 Ducati Mark 3, 1980 Ducati Darmah). After sourcing parts and meeting other bike enthusiasts from all around the country (and world) we heard a lot of incredible stories and saw many great collections. We started The Mighty Motor to share these experiences and stories.”
Elizabeth Gadbaw: “Editor and second shooter for events. From Washington, D.C. but have lived in California for the last eight years. Currently a law student at UCLA. Never been on a bike (or had any desire to get on one!) til I met Shaik. Now I can tell the difference between a Triumph and a BSA. That’s huge for me! I love hearing the stories and history behind the bikes, the passion that fuels collectors and casual riders to maintain and restore these old machines.”
Katrina Taib: “Design collaborator. Irish/Malaysian living in NYC as an interior designer. I am a life long friend of Shaik’s that recently joined the team as a guest contributor.”
