|Welcome to Werkstatt Motorcycles!
|WERKSTATT IS CLOSING AFTER 21 YEARS. THANKS TO EVERYBODY THAT HAS SUPPORTED US SINCE 1994!
After 21 plus years of raising Werkstatt Motorcycle Repair, LLC, from a one-person-operation to a full-fledged motorcycle repair, service and racing shop, I am changing the business structure of my shop effective January 2016.
Werkstatt Motorcycle Repair will no longer be open to the public, but rather I will concentrate on repairs for personal clients, teaching motorcycle repair to individuals on a one-to-one basis, and other motorcycle related projects in the wider Bay Area.
This new structure will allow me to take a personal sabbatical to be a full time mother raising my 3 year old son and 4 year old daughter. The change will take effect by January 1st, 2016. We will accept the last repair requests at the 3248 17th St, San Francisco location by December 1st, 2015.
Beginning 2016 I will take private clients only. Please email me at Jennifer@werkstattsf.com to discuss any mentoring, teaching, or repair work desired.
I want to thank every friend and client that has touched my life in the last 22 years for the wonderful experience I had with the motorcycle community of San Francisco and beyond. It has been a rich and rewarding time.
From starting my business in the back of a welding shop to employing 6 people, from doing my first track day on an old Kawasaki in 1998 to becoming 2nd place in the first TTXGP International Electric Racing Series in 2010, and from barely speaking English, pointing at parts of the motorcycle to becoming one of the first woman owned motorcycle repair shops in the country, I wouldn’t miss a day of it.
With one crying and one laughing eye I am leaving for my sabbatical. I am hoping to stay in touch with many of you, please don’t hesitate to email me for any questions, inquiries or help at Jennifer@werkstattsf.com.
Sincerely, Jennifer Bromme, founder
