SEATTLE’S VINTAGE MOTORCYCLE SHOP

MotoShed specializes in Servicing, Restoring, and Customizing Vintage Motorcycles.

MotoShed is owned and operated by John Lovin and Ritsushi "Richie" Miyazato.  We don't wax too philosophic and get misty eyed, but we sure like old motorcycles.  We focus on pre-1980’s Japanese,  but we work on most anything old and carbureted. We have a soft spot for Sportsters and Ironheads and turn wrenches on modern Bonnevilles all the time. We do tires and oil changes on most bikes, but we try not to work on modern Sport Bikes with plastic fairings, it’s just not our thing.

If our shop can't do what you need, we will gladly point you in the right direction.  We are also fluent in Japanese!

 
 

Hours: 

We are open all weekend

10am - 9pm Tuesday-Friday

12 - 6pm Saturday & Sunday


MotoShed also shares space with  Larson Upholstery and The Wick Motorcycles and Coffee.
