Wrenching for Over Twenty-Five Years
There’s a feeling of comfort and trust that comes with developing a good relationship with a local hands-on motorcycle shop. Being able to walk in and talk directly to a crew about what you’re needing done is something you can’t find too often these days. This type of service still exists at places like Roll On Cycle in Oakdale, Pennsylvania.
The shop is a family business that’s been functioning at the same location for quite some time. After getting tired of working for the man as a heavy equipment mechanic, Buck Williams started Roll On Cycle in 1995 out of his father’s car restoration shop. He had already been working on all of his friends’ bikes, and there were no other motorcycle shops in the area at the time. It only made sense to take the next step. Two of his sons, Zack and Phil, also take part in the operation today.
Zack mentioned that they do everything from maintenance and heavy motor work to custom paint. This includes basic oil changes, inspections, and even bike builds and restorations. “I started working here in high school, then took a little bit of time off before coming back,” Zack explained. “With Phil now painting full-time out of the shop, it recently opened up new opportunities. It’s nice that things are starting to come together now. We’re excited to see where it goes.”
Let’s face it—most of today’s big dealerships won’t touch classic bikes, so finding someone to rebuild or make adjustments to your old shovelhead can be tough. If you have a project in your garage that you’re stuck on or just can’t seem to get finished, give Roll On Cycle a call and see how they can help. With twenty-five years of experience, they’re sure to help get your bike back on the road.
