Sorry haven’t posted in so long. Does anyone ever really look at websites anymore? We have been so busy making Kalamazoo Choppers the best it can be and truthfully it’s a pain to update this thing so, if you really want to keep up with what we are doing you should first check Instagram. I am an addict and am always adding new pics. Then I also update Facebook and Twitter. So follow us on all three, I will usually post different stuff on all of them.
This Sunday June 29 from 11-3 is our open house party! It always seems like it’s gonna rain on that day but you really should try to be there. We have a lot of new and exciting things happening right now. We now have a tattoo studio inside the store. Come down and meet Marc Hairston, he will be the artist along with some fantastic and world famous artists making visits. We also started carrying womens shirts, we have lots of stuff for you ladies also like jewelry, headwear, and eye protection. So far we are having the best year ever so thanks for the business and see you this Sunday!
As many of you already know last winter we took on a very special project. We have a customer that had an idea bike (not a theme bike) that he said could win bike of the year if we could build it. Well we did, and it did win 2013 bike of the year not to mention several other very prestigious motorcycle awards throughout the year. The bike was also featured in Easyriders magazine for their Dec. issue and was chosen for the cover, which is just about as hard as you can hit a ball in the bike building business. We are very proud that all the hard work we put into this beautiful machine was recognized and rewarded. We also want to thank the owner of the bike for the opportunity and experience of building this awesome bike. And for letting us have it back to show our customers what is possible when you believe nothing is impossible. So if you would like to check it out, it will be here for about a week so come in soon. We also have copies of the magazine for purchase while supplies last.
We are ready to beef up your twin cam. This year we are going to offer power packages for all twin cam motors. We have a very good set up for both 88 and 96 inch models. First we have for 07-13 96’’ the cam power upgrade for $1100.00 out the door (that’s at least $300 off in season price). Second we have a great package for the 99-06 88 inch models that not only provides great performance but will upgrade the old problematic cam plate set up with the new hydraulic system for $1750.00 out the door. Also back by popular demand, Big Bore upgrades for both motors as well. 88’’to 97’’ or 96’’ to 106’’ for $1500.00. For details on any of these upgrades or any project you are considering call or stop by the shop. Also take advantage of our new winter work incentive program which can save up to $300 on storage for any of these services.
In May of 2003 Andy Boersma began to realize his dream, he opened a little shop on Lovers Lane behind Fawley Door. He changed oil and tires, and did service work for people tired of the stealership. That little corner shop was quickly out grown and he moved to the other side of the building and added another hand to keep up with demand. Every year the last Sunday in June we open the shop to you our valued customers and enjoy the day. Good music, good food, and good company. This year is special for two reasons first we are now in our new location at 9820 Portage Road and second it is our 10 year milestone. We are very excited to show off all the hard work we put into the new shop. We are looking forward to seeing all of you that have made Kalamazoo Choppers what it is today. So join us Sunday June 24th from 11am to 4pm at 9820 Portage Rd. Ten years wow that’s worth celebrating, nice work Andy. Here’s to 10 more.
Yesterday, April 13th, Gov. Snyder signed into law public act 98 of 2012 which gives motorcycle riders 21 and older the choice to wear or not wear D.O.T approved helmet. There are some stipulations to choose not, but that choice is now yours. It seems rare these days for government to let the people take care of there own safety, so hats off (or helmets off in this case) to Gov. Snyder for freedom of choice once again. A detailed description of the law can be found at www.legislature.mi.gov Thank you, ride free and ride safe.
