Our March 2017 cover bike is owned by Andrew Lamming, and we enjoyed shooting his 2014 Custom Chopper for this month’s cover. Andrew is from Kansas City, Missouri, and we had the opportunity to gather additional information about him and his Custom Chopper. We also had fun shooting cover model Rebekah on Andrew’s bike for this month’s cover. I’m sure you’ll also enjoy this month’s behind the scenes photos!

CC: Andrew, what is your occupation?
Andrew: I do auto and motorcycle body and paint.

CC: Do you have hobbies other than motorcycling?
Andrew: Yes. I also enjoy hot rods, blues music, and my grandkids.

CC: Why do you ride? 
Andrew: The freedom I feel on a bike versus an automobile, and the wind in my face.

CC: How long have you been riding? 
Andrew: I started riding when I was 10, so it’s been a while.

CC: What was your first bike?
Andrew: My first bike was a 1975 Hodaka Super Rat.

CC: How many bikes have you owned? 
Andrew: I’ve owned eight or nine motorcycles.

CC: How many bikes do you currently own? 
Andrew: I currently have just two. This one, and a chromed out 1989 Harley-Davidson Softail Custom.

CC: What do you like most about your custom chopper?
Andrew: Probably how it sounds when you hammer it. It’s got that big inch thundering roar.

CC: What is your dream bike?
Andrew: I can’t say. I have one, and I have lots of ideas for building another one.

CC: What is your most memorable riding experience? 
Andrew: It’s hard to say.

CC: What is your least memorable riding experience? 
Andrew: Waking up in ICU 21 days after being hit by a van. It cost me three months in the hospital and my left leg.

CC: Which motorcycle rallies & events have you attended, and which is your favorite?
Andrew: Sturgis and BBB in Fayetteville, Arkansas. My favorite is probably Sturgis because of the history and riding in the Badlands. That scenery is awesome!

CC: How many tattoos do you have?
Andrew: I have just one. It’s the #13, which is behind my left ear. It’s my lucky number.

CC: Do you prefer riding in a group or by yourself?
Andrew: It doesn’t really matter as long as it’s not raining.

CC: Who is your closest riding buddy?
Andrew: My son Zach, and our buddies Dominic and Troy.

CC: Thanks for the interview Andrew, and thank you for letting us shoot your bike for this month’s cover.
