Emily was born and raised in the Black Hills, specifically the famous city of Sturgis.  After a life changing motorcycle accident, Emily decided to embrace a life with motorcycles, instead of running from it.  She's found a home at the counter of Black Hills Cycles.  Emily has her motorcycle permit and working on getting her motorcycle license, so she can ride her own.

Josh - Wrench



Josh has been riding and wrenching for almost three decades.  He owned Power Factory Custom Cycles in Portsmouth, Virginia for several years, and studied under the master, Mr. Eddie Boomhower.  Jason and Josh are lifetime friends, and it only made sense for him to join the team up at Black Hills Cycles.  Josh owns a couple custom bikes, and a hot rod FXR we call "Fast & Ugly".

Dave has deep roots running in the motorcycle industry.  Originally from California, he found a home in the Black Hills.  As the founder of the original Black Hills Choppers, Dave's hard work and experience has stood the test of time.  He owns several motorcycles, including custom Baggers, a Triumph Bonneville, and many frame-up customs.  Dave is also the publisher for industry shaping publications, American Bagger & Urban Bagger Magazines.

our team

It's as simple as this:  We just LOVE motorcycles!  For us, it is still about RIDING the bikes, and it always will be.  Click on the button below to see more about what we do.


We are a locally-owned and operated small business, and we strive to create familiar surroundings for our customers.   We get the "Ma & Pop Shop" thing.  It works for us, and we like it that way.  We think you will too.  We explain what we are doing and why.  We want you involved with the decisions made about your bike.

Every customer, every job, is important to us. We don't just NEED your business, we WANT your business.


At our shop, you are not just another number.  We know our customers by name.  You actually get to talk to the mechanic that works on your bike.  You don't have to wait two weeks for an oil change.

We have worked hard to establish and maintain a great reputation in the motorcycle industry.

Our customers live and ride in the same community that we do. We know you have choice of where to take your bike for service, upgrades, and repairs.  From our Dynojet 2001 Dynamiter, to our everyday hand tools, we use the best there is . 

We use only quality parts and accessories. We've done our homework, and we know what works, and what is crap. We support American companies, and American craftsman. And we stand behind what we sell, and what we do.
