Eric Bess – Flying Tiger Motorcycle

Eric Bess - Flying Tiger

Eric Bess is the owner and operator of Flying Tiger Motorcycle, a St. Louis-based full-service sales, repair and service shop that also does custom-builds. Before opening Flying Tiger in 2010 with his wife Theresa, Eric worked for Kawasaki as a demo ride leader and held tech-services and quality-assurance positions. His passion for vintage Japanese motorcycles is evident in his unique custom-builds – and his expertise and eye for detail are unmatched. 2017 marks Eric’s first year building for Rebels Uncaged, the Rebel Yell custom motorcycle program.

Flying Tiger’s build for this year is a 2005 Kawasaki ZRX 1200 named Milo. It’s a modern sport bike that retains a classic cafe brat look. The flyscreen and undertail may look familiar – they were made from genuine Rebel Yell whiskey barrels.
