Please...as a woman that runs a custom shop..the service end is what keeps you afloat..women equally enter the shop to have a bike built as men do..it is your reputation that sellds the bikes..not pretty T-shirts in the windows..they want to know who and what is behind building that bike safely...your insurance...God, everyone thinks they can build bikes nowadays..alot more to owning the shop than looking for shoppers for the front room...LOL...and get ready to nowt ever have time to ride once you are known!!!....LOL
One of the things I've been very disappointed in is clothing. All of the cute little Harley and Chopper tank tops with spaghetti straps are made to fit flat-chested women. They would look much better on us well-endowed women. Where can we get the sexy tops?
I'm just about done with my website, online store myself. MOTORCYCLE MADNESS & MORE I cater to the motorcycle lovers, my store is everything motorcycle related, biker tshirts, leather, riding gear, novelties, cards, gifts, etc. & I'm working on parts & chrome now! If anyone cares, I'll keep you posted!?
You Rock Girl!
Ever try eBay stores?
A good way to advertise what you have to offer.
I'm sellin junk on eBay now.
It's been my luck to run across the unusual junk, thats what sells for me.
Hope your sales take off for you Ladie, pleases let us know of your sucess ok?
WideOpen~ GO FOR IT! I like the others, find it hard to find a shop that unless I am a spitting hard ass biker, to give me what I am looking for. Excellent idea. Keep us posted!!
EastCoast~ I would like to hear more about your line too!!
as when the grand opening is im working with a couple of partners so we can pull this this idea off here. give us some time seeing its not chep to get all the s#$t we need to make it work but when we do i will let everyone who e-mails me know.
thank you all for your responses. i am in arizona. i have also thought about teaching how to do work,service and build bikes also seeing that i am a hi-perf teacher on h-d's here. if anyone would be interested in weekend lessons on how to do so please drop me a line
WTG wideopen. I think it would be a great idea also. There are two bike shops here in town and I have taken my bikes to both. Both shops are dingy, cold, dark. That would be my first suggestion.
And, add some ladies apparel, leathers, wintersilks, gloves, helmets, stickers, patches... you know how ladies love to shop!
Best of luck to you!!!!!
I read about a shop down in Miami that does this... owned by a woman... It's doing great, I can't remember the name of the shop, but I recall it was on the water...used to be a marina I think... but last I heard it was going strong and getting bigger.
Wide open, that would be great, every time I find a good harley shop they go out of business or move far away, I would love to be able to find one dependable person to help me out with my HD,really I wish I could do it all myself, haha but you know women, no just kidding alot of woman know alot about bikes, I wish I knew more.
