Since leaving high school ten years ago, Joel has worked in the Automotive industry and for most of that time at Big Boar V Twin. He is a fully qualified motorcycle mechanic after completing his apprenticeship early in his career. With the vast array of different work that comes through the door at Big Boar V Twin, Joel’s experience is growing weekly under the expert guidance of his father, Glen.
Servicing many different brands of Motorcycles, Dyno tuning, performance engine builds and upgrades, restorations and general maintenance and repairs is his daily routine.
His passion however, is Dyno tuning. Joel is a wizz when it comes to computers & tuning software! From the custom builds the team make and the bikes that come in for upgrades and improvements, Joel goes to work, getting the best performance out of each ride using the latest technology available today. He can tailor make each tune to meet the individual client’s needs. Instead of just downloading a map from the internet like other workshops, he custom builds each tune to meet the requirements of each bike. Joel takes into account the climatic conditions and what the bike is being used for. Some clients want a race bike with maximum power off the line, others want improved fuel economy and all round smooth running. Whatever it is you need, Joel can achieve it!
His father Glen says, “ His grandfather was a mechanic, I’m a mechanic, he became a mechanic and we are all motor nuts.”
He comes from a long line of mad mechanics with fixing things entrenched in his family makeup.
