With years of business and engineering experience under their belts, the pair leaned into their greatest passion: motorcycles.
Together, they opened A Bikers Garage in Roanoke in September 2008 in an effort to fill a gap in the market, Redenbaugh said.
“If you wanted an oil change on your Harley, it might take a week,” he said. “There was [not] a place for same-day service.”
While the business does not sell motorcycles, it does provide a full spectrum of maintenance services for all types of bikes.
Typical service on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle entails lubrication of the engine, transmission and primary drive, which A Bikers Garage performs for $199, Redenbaugh said.
Under the direction of senior technician Jeff Dunn, A Bikers Garage covers routine maintenance all the way to full engine builds for Harleys, including upgrades and customization, Redenbaugh said.
For other types of motorcycles, such as Yamaha, Kawasaki and Ducati, the garage provides primary and interval maintenance work on tires, brakes, clutches and customization for accessories.
“If you’re a real enthusiast, your bike becomes individualized to your particular taste and style,” Redenbaugh said. “Our sole focus is service and accessorizing so that you can get the bike to be what you want it to be.”
As enthusiasts themselves, employees at the garage are focused on supporting the motorcycle community, Redenbaugh said. Whether it is a refresh of the engine or a transmission upgrade, the goal is to help customers get more performance out of their bikes.
“We strive to be the best motorcycle value in Texas, and value is much more than the price of an item,” he said.
