Aaron, Mike, and Ronnie came together in late 2015 to form Coastal Empire Moto. Ronnie and Aaron had been working on bikes together for a couple of years before this in a rented storage space; Mike was building bikes in a tiny shed in his backyard. The three got together and hatched a plan to start a full-time shop, found a building, and they haven't stopped building and repairing bikes since.
Aaron brings to the table over twenty years of design and metal fabrication experience. Coming from the financial sector, Mike brings business acumen combined with years of bringing vintage Hondas back to life. The guys call Ronnie The Bike Whisperer, as he seems to be able to identify any problem with a bike in a matter of seconds. Combined with having worked on motorcycles since he was a kid, he also has a background in sales and management.
