I met Daniel back in 2010, though I knew of the guy for many years as we have a couple friends in common. It was during the lead-up to his inaugural ATL to the Arctic charity ride to Deadhorse, Alaska that I finally had the opportunity to get to know him. As co-owner of Decatur Garage, Daniel (or Zolo, as some on the forums know him) turns his highly-skilled wrench on every motorized (and at times, non-motorized) vehicle imaginable.
Rolls-Royce to Porsche, Toyota to Ford, pick a make and he has probably worked on it. Seriously. From modifying four wheel drives to building race cars to prepping motorcycles. He even repaired and welded the frame on my ancient Fantic downhill gravity kart. He is a very talented mechanic, fabricator and tinkerer...as well as a great friend, offroad zen master and world traveller. Here are a few photos of his very cool custom trayback Tacoma and KTM 990 Adventure. Enjoy, and look him up if you need an excellent mechanic.
