With the riding season winding down, I’m feeling reflective. So much has happened and so much has changed down at BlueCat Motors this year. There were so many stories we could have told, even if I was only able to get to some of them here on the website. Big projects, small chores, restorations, rebuilds, …

Winter Storage 2011

With highs struggling to edge into the 50s, it’s hard not to feel fatalistic about the Minnesota winter. It’s coming. There’s no stopping it. We’re headed away from the sun at some tangential portion of 66,000 mph. So while riding season isn’t over yet, it’s drying up quick. That has us thinking about the exciting …

Autumn Throws Us a Bone

Autumn is my favorite time to ride. The fall of 2007 was when I took up riding in the first place, so every year it feels like coming home. It’s a season of change, and a season of uncertainty. Any given day from September on could be gorgeous, could be cold, could be wet or …

Beware the privateer

Times are tough. People are doing whatever they can to try to save money. We get that. It can be tempting to cut the occasional corner to save a little cash. However, when it comes to keeping your motorcycle in working order, cutting corners will usually cost you more in the long run. This doesn’t …

Here’s to the runner

Mainstream American motorcycle culture tends to worship the shiny — tends to follow the new or the unattainable. That’s not all bad. Some modern bikes are brilliant, and I love a good custom bike as much as the next guy. However, I can’t tell you how many custom bikes I’ve seen at events like Bearded …

Introducing Winter Service

There’s no fighting it, winter happens every year. For most of us, it means an end to riding season and the beginning of project season. The same is true for us here in the shop. Winter means personal and customer projects alike. It’s an opportunity to do the big things that put a bike out …

A year on our own

A year ago next week, Ryan picked up a set of keys for what would become the new BlueCat Motors. Moving from our old Vandalia location to our new shop on Prior Ave. has brought with it new freedoms, new challenges and lots and lots of change. Yet the more things have changed, the more …

The Mid-season push

It’s been a busy season so far, and things aren’t slowing down. There’s not a day goes by lately that a customer doesn’t bring us a bike for service. When you’re a repair shop, that’s the best kind of busy. Usually it’s nothing fancy, just a tune-up or a tire change, but in a way …

Whether it's a concourse bike, a resto-mod custom, or even your own take on the perennial Cafe Racer, give us a call at (651) 645-1172 and we'll get the wheels rolling.
