The Vic Shop held a Grand Opening Celebration and Ribbon Cutting at their location at 33 Ellefson Drive in DeSoto on Saturday, May 20 with community leaders, citizens, loyal customers and friends present.
Owner Rylan Voss specializes in repair and customization of Victory and Indian motorcycles as well as sales and parts. He started in the business in 2002 as a mechanic at another shop and in 2009 opened his first shop in Minburn.
Rylan decided to relocate his business to DeSoto because of DeSoto’s commercial development and close proximity to the Interstate. He is a performance specialty shop working on unique or specialized rare bikes. His shop is a destination for the true rare bike enthusiast and he draws customers by word of mouth from all 50 states as well as overseas. Ninety percent of his business is from out of state.
Saturday’s celebration included bike owners from all over including Michigan, Missouri and Kansas, all who had come to celebrate this great new shop and store, who also spent the weekend staying in local motels and enjoying local businesses.
