JOPLIN, Mo. – Joplin cycle dealer Cycle Connection is changing ownership, and its name.

The dealership will become Hideout Harley-Davidson after owners Scott and Nancy Hutson complete the sale, which is expected by month’s end. Most of the dealership's employees are expected to stay on with the new owners.

The Hutsons told FourStatesHomepage it was a difficult choice to make after more than 42 years in the business. "It was a tough thing to tell our staff. There were tears. It was emotional and it's almost as if there has been a little bit of a death or separation here and I'm sure by the 31st it's going to be even a little more so," said Nancy Hutson.
