Jim Musser, president of Knusaga and the designer of the SportCycle, has an extensive automotive engineering background starting with General Motors. There he advanced from Research Engineer, to Chief Research & Development Engineer to Assistant Chief Engineer of the Chevrolet Division. Later he was Engineering Vice President of White Motor Corporation before forming Knusaga Corporation.

Of particular value in this vehicle project was Jim's experience gained while heading the Division's racing programs while in Chevy R&D. This period was chronicled in the recent book "Race Car Vehicle Dynamics" by Bill and Doug Milliken, published by the Society of Automotive Engineers.
