Nothing can liberate you from the ordinary like the growl of the engine and a couple of trustworthy tires. We love to ride, so we’ve made it our mission to help keep the Twin Cities rolling. Above all, we’re focused on service. Because we love all kinds of bikes, we work on just about anything. Japanese and European. Vintage and modern. Turn up to one of our Third Thursday events and you’ll see a cross section of the machines we work on. As much as the bikes themselves, we love the riding community that’s grown up here in St. Paul and Minneapolis.
So bring us your bikes. We’ll fix them, tune them, or remake them. Whatever you need.
Our shop is located at 460 N. Prior Avenue in St. Paul, Minnesota. That location informs our whole approach in what we do. We are midwestern motorcycle mechanics. We put in the hours. We do the job right. We say anyone can make a bike look good, but making one run well takes skill, experience and just a little bit of art.
We do it all. From routine maintenance to barn-found restorations, we can take care of you and your machine. We take pride in providing quality service and as enthusiasts ourselves, we understand the attention to detail required to keep your machine on the road. Our specialty is Japanese and European brands, but we also work on Victory and we’ll take in a vintage Harley on a case-by-case basis. Here’s a list of our supported brands.
We like Brian over at Motorcycle Towing Service. Call (612) 834-1981.
We are located at 460 N. Prior Ave, just off interstate 94, in Saint Paul, MN. We’re but a few blocks from University Ave, on the same street as Menards.
Tuesday-Friday: 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM
Saturday: 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Closed Sunday and Monday except by appointment
Ryan has ridden bikes of every size, across every type of terrain, on three continents. He started Blue Cat Motorcycle a decade ago with a simple vision: to keep cool old bikes on the road. Ten years, thousands of bikes and two locations later, Blue Cat has established itself as a place where sick motorcycles leave healthy and howling.
His name is Jeff, but we call him Rumpal. He’s nicknamed after the right hand man of the Maharaja of the Bundi Province in Rajasthan, India. Rumps started at BCM years ago as a mechanic’s apprentice and now he’s one of our most seasoned wrenches. A Minnesota native, when he’s not out riding his Honda CB750, you can usually find Rumpal lakeside in front of the campfire.
A fully capable mechanic in his own right, when he’s not turning wrenches himself, Lance handles the logistics of getting bikes fixed. He knows what bikes are getting fixed, when, and he can quote part numbers off the top of his head. It’s kinda scary, actually. Listen for the signature scream of his Yamaha RD350.
Look at your calendar, find the Thursday column and count down three weeks. On the third Thursday of all the warmer months (and sometimes during winter) we open our doors after hours to host a two wheel block party. The action starts at 6:00 PM and goes as late as it goes. Usually we’re able to line up a food truck (yay tacos!) or other grub goodness, so show up hungry. We mean it when we say everybody is welcome. If it’s got two wheels and a motor, we want you to bring it out and show it off. Nowhere else will you see a vintage ’50s BMW parked grip-to-grip with a Honda cafe racer on one side and a race-modified Benelli moped on the other. It’s always a blast and we’re really proud of what the event has become. It’d be special if we only did it once a year, but we do it nearly every month. Keep an eye on our blog for scheduling. Then bring your bike and say hello!
