Jocelyn Renaud was conceived near Havre-Aubert in the Magdalen Islands and saw the light of day on
June 11, 1972 in the Montreal suburb of Verdun. He is a grand descendant of a first sea voyager and pirate
who very possibly set foot on Canadian soil long before Columbus and the son of an industrial mechanic and
housewife mother. Better known as “Jesy”, This engineer and designer, and also the owner of Classic Steel in
Châteauguay, Quebec, is proud to present his new creation entitled “The Tintamarre”.
His bikes have earned him many awards, including several first place finishes for such bikes as Hellriser, Sound
Seeker, Scorpio and Miami, Jesy was also received an award from the prestigious American Rider Magazine as
Best Engineered Product of the Year throughout North America for his Scorpio handlebars.
Producing Tintamarre was a six-month activity from the first day of planning to the final result. At first glance the
bike looks very simple, but don’t be deceived. The closer you look, the more you discover the details. The gas tank
is not covered with spikes, there is no mammoth sized tire or stretched chassis that screams “look at me, I’m hardcore”
! This bike is much more discreet. The real beauty of this machine is its clean lines and perfect proportions.

This machine formed with the finest materials that this
planet can offer was handcrafted predominantly to combat all
possible oppressions. With its take-no-prisoners stance and
intensely defiant rule 18 proves it will destroy all intrusions.
18 – A symbol for life !

This is one of those bikes that you build and that takes on
a life of its own. Sure every custom bike has its own identity
and then there are some that flaunt it. This would be
one of those builds.
So we all agree the bagger industry has taken over and
it’s one of the fastest growing trends since the over
22-inch wheels on SUV’s and custom cars. They’ve had
their time to show off and now it’s the two wheeled version’s
turn to take its place on the boulevard .You don’t see custom
bikes like this on the streets every day because most
of them are too delicate to really
ride hard or are only good
for short trips to the bar and
quick sprints to your buddy’s
place. This bike has put on
thousands of hard miles back
and forth to Sturgis North
and Sturgis South, and every
chance it gets it begs a rider
to grab the bars and hold on.
This is one hell of a ride !

This trike started out with a phone call like any other. “ Hey Keith, it’s Gord,
how would you like to build a trike for my girlfriend Sarah ? ” And like many
projects this one got a little carried away.
A 1995 softail frame was stretched, raked to 33 degrees and tailored to
include a single down tube. Then a mystery design trike rear suspension
was bolted up to include two 18 x 10 Foose wheels with 300 Metzeler
rubber. It started to look like a hot rod so instead of buying a “ me too”
prefab body kit we handmade a model-A pickup truck box and fenders. It
was very time consuming but well worth it in the long run. Gord wanted a
Springer fork so out of his stash of parts came a new Springer and GMA
caliper. A Hawg Halter front wheel and rotor were mated up to the front end.
