Restoring vintage motorcycles leads to change in career

Shasta Smith shares the story of her Vintage Monkey motorcycle shop


Shasta Smith started riding motorcycles as a teenager. Although she had a profession as an interior architect, she also was restoring vintage motorcycles in her garage.

A friend suggested she share her work via the internet and that led to an audience and the establishment of Vintage Monkey, a restoration company and motorcycle exhibition center with a 2-year waiting list.

The Wall Street Journal shares her story in this video.
