PERHAM, Minn. – Riders have a new option here for motorcycle service, customization and off-season storage.

“We’ve taken a high level of fabrication, design, quality and building techniques and brought that to rural Minnesota,” said Kurt Peterson, who opened Lil’ Evil in May with partner Greg Larson.

The lifetime enthusiasts named the shop after a bike Peterson built years ago. “The guy who made the chassis for a bike I was building said, ‘we will need to build it a little heavier because you ride a little evil,’ and the name stuck,” he told the Fergus Falls Daily Journal.

The partners bought the facility after finishing a build over the winter.

“We’ve been involved in the industry for 20 years, and we decided it was time to open a shop,” Peterson said. “It was important for us to do it on our own, and the community needs it. We wanted people in the community to have a place to feel like they could call their home shop.”

Lil’ Evil will provide a service and storage option where customers can drop off their bikes for the winter, and Peterson and Larson will winterize, store and prepare motorcycles for riding when spring rolls around.
