Ron Czeiger

After gaining a BA in Professional Writing from the university of Canberra, Ron decided to indulge his passion for motorcycles by exploring the technical side. His introduction to the industry began in 2000 at a small workshop in Artarmon, where he was part of a pit crew for a privateer team in the 6 Hour Endurance Race at Eastern Creek. After half a year he moved to the city branch of Action Motorcycles where his repertoire expanded to accommodate larger capacity sportsbikes. Circumstances led him to help his father build a house in Bowral while he worked at Bowral Motorcycles.

Finally, a fellow TAFE student introduced him to the manager of the world renowned Ducati specialist, Gowanlochs Motorcycle Engineering. This position gave him another opportunity to go back to the track, where he spent his weekends spannering for the second place winner in the Formula Extreme Pro-Twins class of 2003, Mike Soderland on an Aprilia RSV Mille. After three years concentrating on engine rebuilds and performance modifications, he completed his apprenticeship. After 6 months working as a qualified tradesman, he began the development of Flywheels Motorcycle Engineering.

He graduated at the top of his class at TAFE and was among the top five in NSW, earning him a Trade Certificate with Distinction in the field of Light Automotive (Motorcycle Mechanic). For his efforts, the Institute of Automotive Engineering presented him with a shield for outstanding achievement in 2004, He was also awarded for the "Most Outstanding Apprentice" by the Motor Vehicle Repair Industry Authority.
