Stanley(1925-1983) & Thera (1925-2019)
Established business in 1958
Stanley served the Canadian Army during WWII as a tank battalion service technician in the European Theater. Having been born in the US, he relocated state side after the war where he met Thera. He became locally known for tinkering with motorcycles. Before long Harley-Davidson contacted Stanley and Thera to see if they would like to open a dealership in Batavia. At that time until Stanley's passing the business was always a part time endeavor while Stanley was employed full time as a Genesee County Deputy Sheriff.
Darryl's parents first opened the doors on the business in 1958. Stanley passed down his knowledge of motorcycle repair to Darryl. Darryl's main rides are a 2012 CVO Road Glide and a 1988 Sportster with sidecar in tow. There was a time when Darryl only worked part time for his parents. At that time he worked as a tool and die maker.
Debbie's parents started the business way back in 1958 when the Harley-Davidson Motor Company set him up with a Dealership and a $1,500 worth of parts. Despite Stanley's passing in 1983 the business continued to grow and she was able to leave her position as a lab technician at a local hospital to handle motorcycle sales full time. She and her husband ride a 2018 115th Anniversary Tri Glide.
Tom has been with the company for many years. He likes to play a silent roll in the business
