Some folks say that when one door closes another one opens. That’s been working out well for James Davis and Bea Magleby, who opened Scotts Valley Motorcycle Service Center recently at the former site of shuttered iBike.
“The place just worked out perfect,” Davis told the Press-Banner. “The doors were all built to handle whatever size bike we could want to work on, and we all have plenty of space.”
The Northern California shop sports a showroom full of vintage Harley-Davidsons, antique Indian motorcycles and state-of-the-art street bikes. To build community, the shop puts on a free “getting to know your bike” class that covers pre- and post-ride inspections the third Sunday of each month. The owners also plan to start hosting Saturday barbecues.
“Our goal is to help establish a riding community that simply enjoys riding motorcycles, be it big bikes, crotch rockets or scooters,” Davis says. “We want to revamp the excitement involved with riding.”
