Ryan Scott: Founder
Ryan has ridden bikes of every size, across every type of terrain, on three continents. He started BlueCat motors a decade ago with a simple vision: to keep cool old bikes on the road. Thousands of bikes and two locations later, BlueCat Motors has established itself as a place where old, sick motorcycles leave healthy and howling. If it’s got two wheels and a motor, Ryan’s probably ridden it before. Ask him about his eclectic bike history and especially his baby, a classic Triumph Bonneville.
ROBB: Lead Mechanic
Robb was raised by coyotes in the desert southwest on a steady diet of bearing grease and ground up tire rubber. As such, he’s now the quintessential bike whisperer. With a head full of mechanical knowledge and gasoline in his veins, Robb has been working on motorcycles for three decades now. A suspension and engine tuning specialist, Robb can not only get a motorcycle running properly, but get it dialed in and performing better than it was when it left the factory.
His name is Jeff, but we call him Rumpal. He’s nicknamed after the right hand man of the Maharaja of the Bundi Province in Rajasthan, India. Rumps started at BCM years ago as a mechanic’s apprentice and now he’s one of our most seasoned wrenches. A Minnesota native, when he’s not out riding his Honda CB350 cafe racer, you can usually find Rumpal lakeside in front of the campfire.
Lance: Parts and Service Manager
A fully capable mechanic in his own right, when he’s not turning wrenches himself, Lance handles the logistics of getting bikes fixed. He knows what bikes are getting fixed, when, and he can quote part numbers off the top of his head. It’s kinda scary, actually. Listen for the signature scream of his Yamaha RD350.
