Midwest Custom Cycle Works - closing

I just got a phone call from Paul Bihm informing me that his shop has closed, and he will no longer be servicing any motorcycles or doing Traxxion installs.

He told me he isn't going to be working on bikes anymore, so I assume the Florida shop is also closed.

Well that stinks....at least for me. Paul did my Traxx install and always rode my bike down to him for my fork services.


Paul if you see this, I wish you all the best.

Paul did my Traxxion service and I really enjoyed working with him. Wish him well in retirement.

Very sorry to hear this, Paul was someone counted on for excellent work by many GL1800 owners. Best wishes for a very nice retirement.
