A Wichita-based motorcycle PG&A store is finding success with an unusual strategy: Owners Shawn and Kat Hunter comb the Internet and other sources for products they say other dealers just don’t carry.
For instance, Open Road Motorcycle carries a custom exhaust system for Honda Gold Wing motorcycles. “The big dealers don’t deal with it because it’s just [made by] a guy in his backyard, but he’s truly an artist,” Shawn Hunter told the Wichita Eagle. “There are a lot of unique products out there.”
He manages the parts aspect of the business, while Kat minds the apparel and jewelry department.
The Hunters also handle consignment sales, and say they would like to add motorcycle sales and service at the shop, which moved to a new location in February.
