Starr Cycle history

From 1990-2000 John Zender rented from the old Lakeside Harley Davidson building in Mankato. After closing the doors there, from 2000-2004 John shared the same building Starr Cycle is in today with Sherwood Motorsports. Sherwood sold the motorcycles and ATV's, and John owned and ran the service department. In 2004 John bought out Sherwood Motorsports and renamed the business Starr Cycle- a small Harley Davidson and Japanese repair shop. He offered service and sales of pre-owned units, then in 2006 took on Yamaha, KTM, KYMCO and Genuine Scooters. In 2011 John bought the Honda Powersports line over from Luther Honda (a car dealership) in Mankato. About a year later, John took on Kawasaki. In 2013 John signed the papers for Victory Motorcycles, and in 2014 John also brought in Polaris' Slingshot line.  Most recently, in 2016, John took on CFMOTO ATV's and Side-by-Sides. Today we have 15 characterful employees, 8 very fun brands and over 100 pre-owned scooters, motorcycles, ATV's and Side-by-sides in our building.
