Acknowledged by the motorcycle industry as the "father of metric customizing," Baron has succeeded in blurring the lines between Metric (imported) and Harley (American) motorcycles, thereby pushing forward the evolution of the industry. Since 1996 John Vaughan-Chaldy has been building custom motorcycles and designing the ancillary products necessary to create them. His award-winning, innovative, customized creations are credited with driving the public's awareness of the customizing potential of "metric" motorcycles.

"It's not what you ride, but that you ride, and it's not what you build, it's that you build!" states Baron.

For the past ten years industry periodicals worldwide have proliferated public awareness of the Baron's name, work and reputation to individual enthusiasts and manufacturers of metric motorcycles; i.e. Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Triumph. This exposure has created opportunities for Baron to appear as an industry expert on several motorcycle shows aired around the globe. John's sense of humor, easy-going manner and "average man" persona has made his appearances memorable and gave rise to his popularity among riders and corporate executives.

Capitalizing on these attributes, Executive Producer Danielle Spandau of "Metric Revolution" selected to select him as host and industry expert for cable television's newest reality motorcycle show. Set to air spring 2007 on ESPN2, the 13 week series will feature 22 of the nation's best custom metric motorcycle builders competing head to head in three classes: Pro Cruiser, Pro Sport Bike and Rookie builder.
