Carl's Cycle Supply was formed in 1982 as and has been providing excellent service to their customers ever since. Carl Olsen has been riding and working on Harley Davidson Big Twins since before he graduated from high school in 1971. He grew up restoring antique cars and tractors with his father in North Dakota. Carl has an AA degree in advanced machining and over ten years experience in machining, he also taught vocational machine shop for six years.
In 1998 the shop out grew the hobby status and turned into a full time job. Matt was raised in the shop and has quite a reputation for knowledge on all facets for details of numerous different machines. Some of Matt's accomplishments are the Smitty award at Davenport, numerous restorations of lightweights, 45s, knuckleheads, and the first ever AMCA Youth Coordinator. Carl and Matt not only build great bikes, they ride them as well. They've ridden their restored bikes to numerous A.M.C.A. road runs and antique meets. From local meets that are only a couple of hundred miles away, to cross country trips that sometimes log thousands of miles, these guys ride old bikes and know what it takes to make them road worthy. Together they have restored numerous complete, high point A.M.C.A. bikes.
They strive to make all of their restorations 95+ points on the 100 point AMCA scale, but if a customer so chooses they can modify and /or customize his personal antique machine. All of the bikes that the shop produces are updated internally using state of the art technology, but maintain the charm and character of the original design.
