Pigg Pen Cycles—which services and customizes Harley-Davidsons and builds some ground-up motorcycles—has been in Leander for eight years. The company has seen many changes in the city.
“The growth of the city has just been incredible …” said Ryan Green, who runs Pigg Pen Cycles. “It’s just incredible how everything has just blown-up; more and more people are coming through, and all kinds of people—a lot of fun.”
Green co-owns the company with his father, Doc, and Dale Mather, an investor partner. Green said Doc runs the front of the shop while he works on motorcycle maintenance, repairs and builds.
“I’ll have my kids in here; they’ll be running amuck. So you can see three generations of the Greens …,” Green said. “So I hope that customers come in and they feel that they’re part of it as well.”
Pigg Pen Cycles supports its community, especially through programs that have to do with dogs, children and veterans, Doc said. The business hosts a benefit event called Hogs for Dogs each year and proceeds go toward Texas Humane Heroes in Leander.
“The Hogs for Dogs benefits, those are absolutely the best times,” Green said. “We get out there, and everybody loves to support these animals and this cause.”
Back at the shop, Doc said Pigg Pen Cycles primarily focuses on maintenance services with proficiency in wreck repair. He said they also extend safety tips for both first-time and experienced riders.
“We’re very much into education,” Doc said. “The way I’ve always said it is an educated rider is a safer rider. He knows his machine better.”
Green said the quality of work at Pigg Pen Cycles keeps customers coming back, and he encourages anyone interested in the work they do to stop by the shop.
“We’re a family; come on down and check us out,” Green said. “[Whether] you’re in the motorcycle industry or … you’re just curious about these things, we just love to talk about them.”
