MEET THE JUDGES: JEFF DECKER
Artist / Sculpter / Motorcycle Historian
World renowned artist, sculptor, and motorcycle historian. Passionate about cars, motorcycles or anything mechanical that started out well made and has endured the test of time. Jeff acknowledges his deep passion for the subject matter. Jeff inherited the love of all things motorcycle from his father, Allan Decker, who not only owned one of southern California’s largest collections of flathead speed equipment during the 60’s but was an astute mechanic understanding the lines and proportion of the machines.
