Ryan Van Wey

Founder

Growing up around motorcycles and watching my father work on his choppers in our family living room was the blueprint for my future. I remember a time when the local newspaper came to interview my father about his motorcycles, I must have been in my early high school years, the lady writing the article was pretty shocked she wasn’t pulling up to a nice shop, instead to an older house with the kitchen converted to a work station with a chopper sitting on a chunk of railroad tie. It was that exact chopper that gave me the same passion as my father had when I was growing up. I rode that chopper everywhere with no seat for months, unpainted, loud and ugly. It was the beginning of the next 20 years and more.  The more connections I made the more opportunities I had to buy and sell the bikes that I love. This eventually led to Vanilla Cycles. We are a small operation and we find the right units at the right price. We buy them, maybe ride them for awhile, and sell them. Its the main focus of what we do and what we believe in.
