Slo Johnson from "Philly Throttle" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

Slo Johnson (spelled without the "w") is a vintage Harley Davidson specialist, staple of Philly's rock scene and one of Liberty Vintage's most trusted mechanics. A product of the '60s who grew up glued to the sidelines of drag races and hot rod shows, Slo's vibe is comically part P-Funk, part Hendrix and part Eeyore from Winnie-the-Pooh.

As a teenager, Slo scored his first bike for an absolute steal at the price of $120. The only catch? It came in the form of a frame and five boxes of disassembled parts. Hooked instantly, Slo began flipping bikes all across the city and couldn't stop. Finally landing a gig at local bike shop in West Philly, he was serendipitously stationed next to a then-unknown grease monkey named Adam Cramer. That was 20 years ago and the two have been fast friends ever since — but not without their share of ups and downs. To Adam's dismay — but as his name implies — Slo works on Slo's time.
