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. That too was soon not enough and he not only brought in another employee, he busted down a wall and took on a double lot with a showroom. Their he found his groove and built many custom bikes, and one hell of a motorcycle shop, Kalamazoo Choppers. 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.

At Kalamazoo Choppers we believe in old fashion customer service, not always with a smile but always with every ounce of our heart and ability.
