#86 Shane Masters
Hello, I am Shane Masters one of three riders known as Team Rip Rap Riders. I will be riding a 1925 Indian Big Chief.
My love of antique motorcycles started over 40 years ago, while growing up in a family of motorcycle riders and antique motorcycle enthusiasts. My grandfather rode his motorcycle to every state in the U.S. As long as I can remember my father has owned motorcycles and along with his friend John Steelman, I caught the bug of riding and collecting motorcycles.
In my teens we restored a 1927 Harley Davidson Single, which I still own and ride today. I also have a passion for vintage cars, owning a 1927 Model T roadster. I am a member of The Road Devils Car Club, Ohio Chapter and Vintage Iron Motorcycle Club, Ohio Chapter. People ask me why I would want to attempt to ride an antique motorcycle across the United States from one coast to the next. My reply is always, who wouldn’t want to experience the U.S. on the open road with the wind in your face on an antique motorcycle!
I would like to give thanks to my teammates Brent Mayfield and Jason Wadzinski and extend a special appreciation to John Steelman without all of his contributions to this experience I would not be able to accomplish a lifelong dream.
