ERIC BESS // KNIFE & FLAG INTERVIEW: MECHANIC APRONS
K&F INTERVIEW WITH ERIC BESS: MECHANIC APRONS
// K&F: Tell us a little about yourself and your trade.
// ERIC: Being a mechanic is a "Thankless Trade". Motorcycle work is not withoout challenges and has a lot of reward. I really enjoy bringing things back from the dead and repurposing them into a modern version of something classic.
// K&F: What apron are you currently wearing and why was it the perfect mix of form and function?
// ERIC: I'm currently wearing the Knife and Flag Tiger Camo Apron. Keeps the clothing and person out of harms way and plays to the name sake of Flying Tiger. I like the adusting clip feature of the pain, I don't always have to tie something behind my back or refit it to me.
// K&F: Out of all of your tools, which one is your favorite and why?
// ERIC: A simple ten millimeter wrachet and box wrench because I use them more than anything else.
// K&F: Who are some of your favorite fellow tradespersons to follow on social media?
// ERIC: Tony from anaolog motorcycles out of Chicago, he's one of my buddies that does shows with us. Kevin Dunworth from Dunworth Cycles, super nice guy who will come and fix things for you- both industry guys.
// K&F: If Knife & Flag were to add more to their lineup what would you suggest?
// ERIC: Something more heavy duty
