How metal is building motorcycles? Ask Scorpion Child's Alec Padron...

Motorcycles are fucking cool. And Scorpion Child’s Alec Padron loves them so much he builds them himself

Holy shit. This place is insane. What do you do here?

“This is Revival Cycles [in Austin, Texas]. I work here, building full custom motorcycles. We also do restorations and preservations on old or rare bikes. It’s a badass toy box for guys like me.”

How’d you get into this?

“I’ve fucked around with bikes and cars my whole life – built them and fixed them and all kinds of stuff like that – but I started doing this professionally a couple of years ago. I guess I’ve been destined to work on these as a profession, aside from playing music, that is. I’ve been playing music since I was 13 and I’ve been in bands and touring since I was in my early 20s, so they’ve always both been there.”

Acid Roulette by Scorpion Child is out on June 10 via Nuclear Blast
