John Staud

Show Host

John has been immersed in all things motorcycle from an early age.   While recalling his early motorcycles, John said " When your a young kid with limited funds you have to build and fix your own project bikes. You learn a lot disassembling and repairing tired old bikes".

Many years and bikes later he opened Staud Cycles in Fairfield Ohio.  His passion still burns to turn a raw frame into a show stopper, and his trophy case backs that up.  He is truly a talented builder.
