Meet The Vintage Spoke Family

Post by Admin on Fri Feb 26, 2016 3:55 pm

The Vintage Spoke was founded in 2007 by Mr. Chad Chebultz. Located in Abilene, KS, what started out as a hobby, soon grew to become a very successful business; selling vintage motorcycles and re-furbished (obsolete) products. For most of Chebultz's life motorcycles had been a part of his life in the past; a successful flat-track racer (traveling with his family and supporting his children in racing) with three national championship wins under his belt. Then it all changed with an accident in Paducah, Kentucky. Chebultz suffered a head injury and decided that along with seeing two close friends injured, that was enough for him.He quit riding but still considered motorcycles art. He came to Abilene explaining, "I was driving through from Texas and thought he was on Highway 77 but had actually ended up on Highway 15." Chebultz shared, “I came into the middle of Abilene and saw this town and thought, yeah man, this is 1950. This is ok. I went home and told my girlfriend about Abilene and we were looking over here within two weeks. Next thing, we’re here and it’s been a good place for us ever since.” In 2007, Mr. Chebultz was in the collections business, however shortly after cut-backs he was subsequently laid off. Chebultz found himself in a bind, so he went back to his passion for the art of motorcycles and started what would become The Vintage Spoke, with one bike. Chebultz explained, "My neighbor had a motorcycle for five hundred dollars and I had lost my job. My money was running out. So I thought, “ I wonder if I can buy that bike?” I knew it had to be worth more than that. So I bought it and I think it sold for $2100 and I had a $500 investment.” Chebultz reinvested his profits and the business took off from there. As the builds and business grew, Chebultz saw a need for parts for older motorcycles and found a way to manufacture these through partnerships with other companies. As his business grew, so did his reputation, and within a few months KEDO, a German-based manufacturing company, contacted him and offered him to be the North American dealer for their products. Chebultz has been very fortunate with his passion of building motorcycles and has a business that now employs a small group of friends, and family; including their children. He sells both restored, and replicated, motorcycles as well as new parts for vintage motorcycles.
