In awarding All Pro Motorsports winner of the Top 100 Best Independent award, one judge says the store resembles "an old-time motorcycle shop with a modern retail attitude." And taking a look at pictures of the shop's showroom one would know that it isn't a franchised dealer. Divided into cruisers and sportbikes, the showroom display 150-plus models at any given time. The dealership retails more than 500 used bikes a year. Each of those bikes left the floor with All Pro's 30-day, unlimited-mileage warranty. While the store doesn't have an F&I department, it does have good working relationships with local banks and credit unions and assists in getting customers financing.
Employees are hired to perform specific jobs; however, all are eligible for bonuses, commissions and additional hourly pay for work performed above and beyond their required job. Another perk includes a yearly all-expenses paid vacation for every employee and spouse/significant other. In 2008 the crew flew out to Las Vegas for a four-night, five-day stay at the Monte Carlo. The service area houses five work bays, one of which is reserved for detailing. The shop also has tools to work on all makes and models from 1970 to the present. Go-fast fans can use the shop's dyno testing facility. Besides service, the store offers complete body work and upholstery work.
