DETROIT, Mich. – Local riders got a peek inside Motown Custom Cycles over the weekend at an open house.

Owner Dave Arzola and the 1959 Harley he's owned since he was 18 years old greeted visitors Saturday to the 30-year-old shop. He's hoping to make the open house a local tradition.

"We're just trying to get everyone together before the end of the season," Arzola told the Detroit News. "I'd like to see us have an open house at the beginning and end of each season."

Motown Custom Cycles specializes in Harley-Davidson but customizes all bike brands.

"We do custom builds from the ground, up," said shop fabricator J.R. Richards. "We do all kinds of bikes and we even fix up scooters and mini-bikes for the kids in the neighborhood."

The free open house featured live entertainment, food and a show of custom motorcycles. Trophies were awarded for the best sportster, bagger, custom and import bikes.
