American Bikes 4 You to move to Wichita

UPDATED — Andover-based American Bikes 4 You, which sells pre-owned Harley-Davidsons, is moving to Wichita and almost doubling its space.

“Right now we average just over 300 bikes a year that we sell,” says LoRisa Fouch. “We’re hoping to double that. We’ll be able to have more motorcycles.”

Fouch owns the business with her husband, Larry, who has sold pre-owned Harleys for more than 25 years.

The 6-year-old company is moving to 8,500 square feet at 12345 E. Kellogg, which is east of Lowe’s and Walmart where Suburban Equipment used to be.

Currently, the Fouches rent two buildings, which are about 2,300 square feet each, at 13916 U.S. 54.

LoRisa says in addition to getting more space, the move will allow them to own their building, which she says makes more sense.

Also, there’s a large, paved parking lot instead of the gravel lot the store has now.

Bradley Tidemann of J.P. Weigand & Sons handled the deal.

Earlier this year, the Fouches changed the name of their business from Harleys 4 You after receiving a letter from Harley-Davidson that said they should stop using the Harley name.

A remodel of the new building will take a couple of months, so the move to the new space won’t happen immediately.

Parts and service aren’t available now, LoRisa Fouch says, but they’re a possibility eventually.

“Right now we’re just going to keep it as it is,” she says. “We don’t want to branch out too far too fast because that usually cause problems with businesses.”
