Thank you for your cooperation!

Welcome to Motorcycle Performance. We offer top-level complete service on BMW, Ducati, Harley Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Triumph, Yamaha, Indian, KTM, and Royal Enfield motorcycles.

We service old motorcycles--dating from the 49's to the present.

Our range of services include everything from scheduled maintenance to complete engine overhauls. The same people that mount our 212 mph tires take care of yours. This is true for the brakes, chassis, and suspension work.

We bore and hone cylinders and rebuild cylinder heads--from quick freshening up of the valve seats to complete valve work.

Restore that new-bike feel with tires. We stock Michelin, Bridgestone, Dunlop, Shinko, Metzeler, Continental, Kenda, Pirelli, and more.

Paint and body work available...email for details.

AFTER HOURS

Motorcycles can be dropped off after hours. There is a key drop slot.
Please complete a service form (include a contact telephone number and email), seal the form and key in the envelope that is provided, and slide it through the door slot.

There are surveillance cameras that record outside activity 24/7. These are monitored throughout the day and night. If a motocycle is parked outside after hours, staff will make every effort to come and move the motorcycle inside the building.

SERVICE STAFF

The combined service experience here at the shop is close to 100 years of working on motorcycles.

Our staff consists of:

General Manager: WJ Shields began in 2001 as the parts person. Considered one of the best around, he has the knowledge to cross over parts from motorcycle to motorcycle. He is also a shop technician, so you will see him wrenching on motorcycles with the other employees. He has been riding motorcycles for about 62 years.

Technician: Patrick Zeigle has been a tech with the company since 2018. He is the shop welder, fabricator, and machinest. Patrick was raised around motorcycles and has been working on them since he was young. He is a Flat-track racer and has also broken a record on the Bonneville Salt Flats with a 1949 Harley Hummer 125cc.

Technician: Doug Whitmore has rejoined the staff here in 2022, after an absence of 20 years. He worked for Motorcycle Performance from the mid-1980's to mid-1990's. He has worked on motorcycles for about 45 years. Doug has been a drag racer since his early year (for about 40 plus years), and is currently racing nitro Harleys.

Every person that has worked for Motorcycle Performance (established by William Whisenant) has been taught by Bill, himself, and the staff are very proud to have been able to utilize his experience and knowledge to continue servicing motorcycles today and in the future.

Tech Tip!

Oil Changes Revisited

We revisit the topic of motorcycle oil changes, answering the question "Why is it more expensive than going to Jiffy Lube?"
