WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn. -  Roadsmith Trikes, with factory retail stores known as The Trike Shop, has announced the retirement of company founder Dick Lindholm (right). In addition, the company is consolidating two factory store locations in the Daytona Beach, Fla., area where Lindholm resides. 

The closure of the company's Destination Daytona location in Ormond Beach will allow Roadsmith to consolidate staff and services in a single location while maintaining the company’s original store on Beach Street as the retail showroom and full-service facility for trike conversions and service, according to the announcement.   

Lindholm's son, Doug, along with business partner, Jim McGurran, will continue with the primary management responsibilities of the company.  "Retirement of the senior Lindholm will not, in any way, affect the company as Doug and Jim have successfully been running the day-to-day operations of the business for quite some time and are currently experiencing one of the best years in the history of the company," Roadsmith said. 

Roadsmith Trikes is based in White Bear Lake, Minn., where it manufactures and distributes trike conversion kits for Honda, Harley-Davidson, Victory and Indian motorcycles. The manufacturer has more than 100 dealers in the U.S. and Canada.
