A new motorcycle repair and maintenance business in Dixie is introducing itself this weekend with an open house/bikini bike wash.
F&A’s Cycles, 64 Cornwall St., will celebrate its opening next to TooLaMah with food, entertainment and clean bikes. The wash costs nothing, though tips and donations are encouraged, according to an announcement.
The business is owned by New Hampshire transplant Frank Hebert, who also offers tire changing, oil changes, tuneups and more on all makes and models.
His new business shares space shares the building with TooLaMah, a retail shop featuring handcrafted jewelry, beads, crocheted items, gifts and more and owned by Hebert’s mother-in-law Audrey Renaud. The building used to be home to Dixie Cycles.
Hebert is the main mechanic at the shop, but also gets an assist from his daughter, Alex, who knows her own way around bikes.
Hours of operation at the shop are 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Sundays and Mondays are reportedly said to be days for riding. The open house will take place Saturday, and Hebert has requested no drugs, alcohol or weapons on the premises. For more details on the shop or event, call 386-8982.
