Default American Muscle Cycle Works (Victory service)

I frequently ride rt 10/202 back and forth between MA and CT, I spotted this shop not long ago called American Muscle Cycle Works. I decided to stop in and see what they were about, I met Lee, one of the owners and master technician. The shop was in the midst of a redo, just finishing a major renovation and expansion but he took the time to talk with me, I like that. Lee explained his shop has been in business two years, they are a certified HD, Victory and Indian repair shop as well as a custom builder and a used bike sales shop. They are about 30 miles from me which is 20 miles less and much easier to get to than the now closed Vic dealer I bought my XC from was.
I'm glad I stopped in, it eases my mind to know there's a shop close by I can take my bike should it need any major repairs over the next years I plan to keep it.
For any other Vic riders in the western CT/MA area the shop address is: 651 Salmon Brook ST. Granby, CT 860-653-0306

The place doesn't have much to see, unless you have a burning desire to look at the few used HDs for sale.... I don't plan on going back for a visit, in fact I hope I never have to go back...ever. But its good to know the shop is there.

Pretty much for that reason. Nothing wrong with looking at used HDs for sale.
Just to let him know we're out there and glad he exists.

Its nice you found a place that could someday help out.
I have always wonder what makes a shop (certified) I know HD or Vic didn't send them paperwork saying there certified. Does it mean the guys have worked on these bikes and sapositlie know what they're doing.

When I see "certified", I expect that he went through some formalized training by the manufacturer. I am a certified Husqvarna Viking sewing machine technician for my wife's quilt shop. I've gone to the company and taken part in service training, and I have a piece of paper that says so.
