If you find yourself near Indianapolis with a hankerin’ for motorcycle goods, stop by City Moto and peruse their stylish, wide selection. Corey rode the sidecar over to College Ave; here’s a quick review of this cool Indy shop…
Here’s some of the haul I left with (above), featuring some quality screened tees, sweatshirt, koozies, shop rags, patches, stickers and some backup helmet parts.
The brands of goods you’ll find are made up of internationally-known companies and locally-based creative folks. Both ends of the spectrum create their products with careful consideration of design and, in many cases, nostalgia.
To give you an idea of who they stock, here’s a partial list: REV’IT, Biltwell, Red Wing, ICON1000, Belstaff, Stylmartin, Deus Ex Machina, AGV, Bell, Lewis Leather, Held, Lee Parks, Schott, Roland Sands, Vanson, etc., etc.
Don’t go thinking this is just a hipster mart, there’s plenty of paraphernalia for edgy riders and fringe folk. From tees that make a statement, high-quality cuts of leather, and bike accessories, there’s something for everyone.
Who doesn’t like a well-stocked mag rack? City Moto has a wide range of creative publications as well as hardback books in their reading nook.
Shop owners, Kurt (left) and Joe are nice guys who’ve assembled and expanded their offerings in a classic brick-n-mortar, face-to-face environment. I’m sure you’ve heard the term Hoosier Hospitality; it’s alive and well here.
If you end up riding over to take a gander, bring a backpack, bungee cords, or saddlebags; you’re gonna be tempted.
It’s a great destination to aim toward; just south of the eclectic Broad Ripple and just north of the happenin’ downtown Indy. Check out City Moto on Facebook or stop in at 4911 N College Ave, Indianapolis, Indiana.
