Turning a half century-old service station into a groovy motorcycle shop is no small undertaking. We’ve come a long way since we first moved into our new space on Prior, but there’s still a lot to do. There’s big stuff and little stuff, but it’s all got to get sorted out. We stripped out what had to be a quarter mile of phone and electrical wires that were literally hooked up to nothing.


We’re going through city inspections as well. The Fire Marshal said we needed doorknobs on the entrance to our storage area, but that any knobs would do. So we made our own. What? You don’t have a camshaft opening your doors? It’s upcycling.


Our lobby and merch display area is fully torn down now. We’ve pulled down all the tacky ’70s paneling and found the original yellow paint underneath. Soon we’ll have the floors redone, the walls sorted out, and new displays for helmets and accessories. Stay tuned.
