Custom Builder Kim Suter Is Back And Opens A New Large Shop In The Heart Of Kansas City

kchotrodsCyril-Huze-With-Kim-SuterIn 1995, Kim and wifey Cheryl opened a motorcycle shop in the back of a gas station. Over the next 13 years, their passion for building custom motorcycles grew bigger as they were creating better and better custom bikes acknowledged by the industry. Both were very familiar faces on the show tour.

Then in 2008, during the worst time of our severe US recession, seeing less opportunities to progress in the industry, they felt, like many other well known builders at the time, that they should close their business.

But today, Kim and Cheryl are back with a renewed enthusiasm, opening a new shop housed in a 6000 sq. ft building which was previously a big truck repair shop. Kim told me, “This time, the shop has the old school feel with the high tech equipment, like a Hot Rods and M/C shop and unlike the super large boutique dealership we’ve had in the past. The shop has a 3000 sq. ft retail showroom stocked with the hard parts and inventory that customers need, and another 3000 sq. ft area for service, repair and of course, the full blown customs we have always been known for.”

So, the builder known as the “Big Inch Boy” is back in the industry. Pay him a visit and say hi on my behalf at , 1701 Fairfax Traffic Way, Kansas City, Kansas 66115, Tel: 913-621-2060.

    Welcome back. The economy may be better but the way to do business has changed. Also true for custom motorcycle builders.

    This news almost makes me kind of sad we left Kansas City .. KCMO that is … not KCKS where Suter’s new digs are . Almost 😉

    As to the economy and doing business in the 2010’s ? First of all .. the economy isn’t .. really any better that is . In fact for the middle class its currently a heck of a lot worse and falling as we speak . Therefore the only way to succeed as a new business these days is to be a Lean , Mean , Fighting Machine . Keeping costs to a reasonable minimum while not sacrificing quality . A nice balancing act if you can accomplish it

    I think the days of having to refinance your house to pay for a custom motorcycle are over for most people.

    Hopefully, their new shop will be able to offer affordable upgrades as well as the high-end builds for the select clientele.

    Good luck Kim!!
