The buzz around Portland is all about the new shop opening in Freeport. Tim Kennedy has put together a dream shop-8400 sq. ft. on route one. Our own LouieQ will be running the service Dept. Tim will have his collection of vintage race bikes in the showroom for drooling purposes. he'll have Rev'it gear, a big TV with race DVD's, parts dept and the right kind of attitude thats so rare in the shops around here. They will specialize in custom work and have the facilities to do it. Anybody who knows Tim knows he does not do things half assed. Opening in about two weeks.

I like the sound of Not Half Assed. My place is 20 minutes from Freeport. Tell us about the shop. Modern, vintage, both?

Just past the Big Indian by about 3/4 mile across from j J Coombs shoes there is a long metal building that used to be an indoor flea market. Shop name=The Motorcycle Shop. Kennedy has raced LRRS for some time, Guzzi and Ducati enthusiast. Owned a Ghezzi-Brian until recently as well as a 750 F1 Ducati that was in jus- uncrated, never started condition. His Dad Peter is an old pal of the Great Coy. Tim bought all of Chris Minks' vintage Italian small disp. bikes last year. Has a Rumi that was at Laconia as well as many other drool inducing machines. Lou rode his MT125 last year at NHIS. My understanding is it will be a shop run by racers who understand Vintage machines. They'll work on vintage and modern, race and street. USCRA members get a discount. The shop is VERY impressive with all Snap-on tools, Sheet metal brakes and other things beyond my understanding. Just imagine your ideal shop set up and this is it. And with LouieQ running the service department....Tim has big ideas and the wherewithal to make them happen. You should drop in when you're in the area. Tim is a friendly, welcoming guy who does things right.
Hey where is your place in New Gloucester? I ride out there all the time and have come to depend on the rest room at Pineland.

Hope that shop is successful. There are too few shops that understand older bikes anymore and are willing to order parts. Sounds like they have the right people in place.
