    Rick James should apply. I think he built the virtually same styled bike over a decade ago.I’m having a fair degree of difficulty working out how if they have a custom bike works they need someone to actually do the custom bike works.

    Interesting videos on the Arch Moto-site that tells a little more of the story. Interesting….

    Looks like a fine opportunity for a young hungry jack-o-all-trades builder-type to get his or her feet wet to me. Funky looking scoot…. with a lot of production changes slated. Best to them.

    Later Jay

    p.s. I dig the bike the way it is

    I hope they do well in their search and new venture.
    Note: People with these skills and their own tools is likely self employed.

    Beautiful piece of workmanship! I could do without the dirtbike/sportbike height of the rear fender. Must be impossible to get any gas into a gas tank made of a solid block of aluminum ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Congrats to Gard for attempting a production bike in these difficult economic times. The prototype shown on their website looks very rough and crude with no real design elements, no functional concept, or coherent theme. They need more than just a fabricator. It doesn’t look ready to compete against Confederate, Motus, Roehr or Ecosse.

    BTW, did Ecosse go out of business? We haven’t seen or heard from them in a while….. but if I had the money for an American Big Twin performance sportbike that handles and is comfortable to ride, this is what I’d want to buy:

    Jim Gianatsis /”The prototype shown on their website looks very rough and crude with no real design elements, no functional concept, or coherent theme”.Having looked at the frame design,I’d have to agree.I think this bike is trying to be ten cool bikes all rolled into one and ending up neither fish,nor fowl nor hog in the process.They need a chassis designer and then tack on all the arty bits later.They should get a good chassis guy like Sandy Kosman to work for them.

    Cracks me up how a post about a great job opportunity becomes a platform for DB’s like Jim Gianatsis & Terence Tory to voice their opinions on the style of bike that Arch is manufacturing. Who cares what you guys think! The title of the post wasn’t ( What’s your “expert” opinion)

    The point is, they are reaching out to the motorcycle community looking to hire an experienced fabricator. If you check out Arch online, it looks like an awesome working environment and it looks like the future employee will have some bitchin machinery at their disposal. That alone should have talented fabricators sending their resumes in! Added bonus, get to work along side Gard & Ryan Boyd. Two extremely talented bike builders and all around cool guys.

    DR:” Who cares what you guys think!”,Obviously you do,or you would not respond.Sandy Kosman should apply for the job.Thanks for your opinion DR.
