We are very fortunate to have an amazing team of people who have a true passion for motorcycling and the motorcycle family in which we all live.
Dave grew up around motorcycles. With three uncles and family friends into motorsports (and motorcycles in particular), it has been a life-long passion. His first street motorcycle in 1991 (which he still owns) is a 1973 CB 350 twin. Since then he has worked in many motorcycle shops - from Harley in Scottsdale, AZ to Confederate Motorcycles in New Orleans, LA where he helped bring the Confederate Wraith to fruition. After Katrina and relocating back to his hometown of San Diego, he started Cerberus Motorcycles out of the garage in his house, primarily focusing on rebuilding and restyling vintage Japanese motorcycles. As a master mechanic with a unique eye for detail, he is the man that keeps this place running. He's got a head full of knowledge and is at any moment willing to share. As the founder and co-owner of Cerberus Motorcycles, Dave has built the right team to bring his dream to fruition.
LADY IN CHARGE
Jennifer has been interested in motorcycles since she got together with Dave in 2010. She flew out to Tennessee to meet up with him and ride on the back of his CB750, but found it was only a one-seater. So she put her master seamstress skills to work making her first motorcycle seat so she could ride on the back! When Dave moved to San Diego she encouraged him to open his own shop. Dave started working on bikes out of the house and Jen made seats on quite a few of the bikes. But as they got more referrals, they grew out of their location. Now as Cerberus co-owner she is working on motorcycles, keeps the shop running behind the scenes and makes amazing food for Cerberus Saturday!
BODY WORK + PAINT MAN
Ernie has had a lot of moto-life experience...working on his own dirt and street bikes since he was a kid helped him master all the skills he uses in the shop. After frequently stopping by the garage just after the shop opened, dropping off amazing artwork of motorcycles and riders, one day Dave asked him if he could do body work. A man of few words, Ernie responded simply, "Yeah."
So began Ernie's legacy of wonderful, amazingly detailed body work on motorcycles here at the shop. He still brings in amazing hand-drawn works of art which can be seen throughout the shop's walls. Ernie is an integral part of our day-to-day operations, and we couldn't do it without him.
