MotoCantina: To kick things off, how about a little bit about who you are and what you do?
Von Banjo: I’m Jeremy Rushing “Von Banjo” and I guess I’m a bit of a redneck renaissance man…haha. I’ve done many different things in this life. Everything from auto paint and body, knife making, window tinting, wood working and turning, building and repairing instruments, graphic design, this list goes on man…Now I’m mainly pinstriping a lot of bikes and helmets. I’m a part of the Biltwell Custom Helmet Artist Program, so I paint a lot of Biltwells and I really dig those guys and their helmets.
It’s about doing something cool, original or different. That’s art… remaking the same shit is manufacturing.
