NEW SHOP UPDATE!!
Site preparation and construction on the new shop has begun. The
driveway and parking lot areas are taking shape. The building permit has
been granted and I have begun excavating for the footers. The original
plan was to have the new building up and be open for business in Spring
of 2013 but the harsh weather this winter has delayed things. I have put
construction on hold until the weather breaks and I will continue
to share space at my current location at Jim's Motorsports for the 2013
season. I will continue working on construction as time allows this
spring and summer and will devote my full attention to it this fall.
Check back for progress reports as the construction progresses either
here or on the O'Brien's Motorcycles FaceBook page.
I've been sharing space with Jim's Motorsports on Route 34, four miles north of the Thruway, between Weedsport and Cato, for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. I will continue to finish out the 2013 season working at this location.
The 2010 season was spent at the original location on Oakland Road in Weedsport while I was scouting out the best possible locations for the new shop.
In 2009, after 27 years, I decided it was time to make some changes. The land was sold and the building came down at the Route 5 location that I was at for so many years. In order to assure the best quality of work and customer service, the decision was also made to no longer have any more employees. From that point on, I have been doing it all myself. The emphasis is now on the service work. Inspections, oil changes and tire changes will still be done while you wait with no appointment necessary.
