2014 MotoLady of The Year: Sofi Tsingos
We’re coming up on four years of the MotoLady website, and with the end of 2014 I want to celebrate an extraordinary woman.
Sofi Tsingos is the brains behind GT Moto, works as a fabricator at Misfit Industries in Texas, and can ride like the wind. This year, she and her father built a Honda cafe racer under their new GT Moto Brand. Over the course of a year they documented the process, sold raffle tickets, took the bike to a couple shows, and the day eventually came to draw the ticket of the winner. They raised over $16,000 and donated it straight to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
So, this year, Sofi wins this MotoLady of the Year trophy I made (pinstriping by Wolf Designs, as usual).
It’s not every day you meet a person who possesses all of the qualities and talents that she does, let alone in a lady. She can weld, fabricate, and design, has lots of riding experience on street and track, and is a really quality human overall.
Here’s the 1972 Honda CB450 cafe racer she built for charity, photographed by Brandon LaJoie.
