WheelsOfGrace.com | Volume 11 Issue 6 | 15 W.O.G.: First and foremost let me begin this ar cle by telling you once again: THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE SIR! CAP.: You're very welcome and thank you for your support. W.O.G.: I remember when we met. Back in 2019, at a Chris an event in Las Vegas. Hard to believe it's been almost a year. Time flies when a Pandemic is upon us. In the middle of the a ernoon, in the hot Las Vegas heat, when everyone was out on a ride, I and a couple of others stayed behind. That's when I heard you roll in and I did a double take. You know the kind we used to do at the beach during Spring Break? CAP.: Wow! I didn't know that but I'm sure my cult 45 2 into 1 exhaust helped. W.O.G.: As my wife says I can talk to anyone, and I did not hesitate to begin a conversa on with you. You must have felt like, "who is this guy asking all these ques ons?" But when I see a bike like yours, with such beauty and detail, I don't only admire the cra smanship and the unique built, I think in magazine editor's mode: photos, images, story, close-ups… So tell us a li le about you first. Where were you born? CAP.: Los Angeles California. W.O.G.: Where did you grow up? CAP.: Up un l the age of 14, I grew up in a cool neighborhood in the San Bernardino Valley then my parents moved us to Las Vegas. W.O.G.: Tell us a li le about the young Fred Tilly. Let's say from birth to 18 when you became an adult. What was the kid and the teenager Fred Tilly like? Was he the same as he is today? Same interests, same passions? CAP.: All in all I can say I had a great childhood. I was born to very strict parents and I have two older brothers and one younger brother. My father worked very hard and my mom stayed home to take care of us kids. Even though they were very strict, they did their best to keep us happy. Of course we didn't have the Internet or cell phones back then so my li le brother and I a er school, were always outside riding our bicycles or our skateboards or playing in the front yard. Every Fourth of July was awesome... the whole street would come out and celebrate together with lots of food and great fun. During Halloween, every kid in the neighborhood was out; it was an awesome carefree me, which I'm afraid kids today will never understand. Christmas me was the best though! We would go to church for Christmas mass but before leaving the house my mom always came to the car and said she had to run back inside to use the bathroom.
