Rodney Green and Clark Thomas opened The Bike Shop in 2016 after disillusionment with their careers and noticing a void in the Birmingham market for service. Soon after finding the location, these two opened the hottest spot in Birmingham to service your bike.
Rodney started his career servicing automobiles at the tender age of 6, working at his grandfather’s full-service gas station. Since he was too short to clean windshields, he was tasked with checking tire pressures. As a master machinist for heavy diesels and race car engines, Rodney also worked as a motorcycle mechanic for a local dealer.
Clark started wrenching on Alfa Romeos and Jaguars in 1983. The next year he started working on motorcycles also. His experience covers automotive and industrial service from welding fabrication, project management, and occasionally jumping out of perfectly good airplanes.
The motivation to open The Bike Shop has always been to:
- provide honest, quality service at a fair price
- build a space to welcome the motorcycle community
- provide a positive influence in rider skill-building, confidence and growth
