On a recent road trip, I dropped by Classified Moto in Richmond, VA. He's got a pretty good business going supporting himself and family but it wasn't always wine and roses. After working 11 years in one of the top ad agencies in Richmond he was laid off. He'd already been building bikes as a hobby with a bike done that already had the foundation of the CM style. So with a lot of grit and fortitude, caution was thrown into the wind and a brand was born.
