    Anyone here know Jake Thompson or know if he’s still in the game? Or where he’s working these days?
    He set up the rear shock on my Banshee and it’s worked very well.
    I’d like to see what he can do with the front.

    Last I heard he was working in the Dakotas doing QC for some oil refinery's. the company would fly him back and forth every weekend. It has been a couple years since I talked to him though. Did you try any of his old phone numbers?

    Honestly, no. It’s been at least 9-10 years and I remember he was sort of floating around a bit after he left that shack he was renting at Denton.

    Time flys when you are having fun :) I left Riverside in 2006 and I thought he had been out of Dentons place a couple years by then.

    He was there in 07-08 until just before they closed the doors.

    He did my kawi 450 years ago, broke out the bottom dampener bolt and tried to superglue it back on, when I noticed I called him out, it was a $130 piece. He blocked my number and I couldn’t find out where he was/worked, F that fat douche

    Larry, Todd from TCS went back to Race Tech last I heard.

    You should see if he is still there.
