We are doing work right
now for some pretty "fancy" customers ....
some of which require confidentiality agreements,
so we are not at liberty to discuss names.
However, even if you are not a Hollywood star,
we would love to talk to you about restoring your classic motorcycle!
In 2006, Cyclemos moved from its downtown Nashville location to the picturesque mountain town of Red Boiling Springs. Every road leading to this quaint little mountain town (known for its historic bed and breakfasts) winds through rich farmland and beautiful mountain ranges. The motorcycle riding in this area is some of the best Tennessee has to offer!
Mike Silvio, owner of Cyclemos Motorcycle Museum has been involved with antique motorcycles since the age of 14 when he inherited his uncle's restored 1936 Harley-Davidson Knucklehead. Besides the Knucklehead, the Cyclemos collection includes a vast array of American motorcycles dating back to 1915.
Here is a list of some of the motorcycles
currently on display:
1946 FL Harley-Davidson Knucklehead
1944 E Harley-Davidson Knucklehead
1936 EL Harley-Davidson Knucklehead
1960 Harley-Davidson Topper
1947 G Servicar
1939 UL Harley-Davidson Flathead
1947 Harley-Davidson Knucklehead Bobber
1948 Indian Chief
1942 WLA Harley-Davidson Military
1944 Cushman Airborne Model

Excerpts from an article by
This is without a doubt not your typical independent motorcycle shop with an overabundance of chrome gadgets and bolt-on Harley accessories that one would find dressing up the walls of a motorcycle shop. You truly step back in time when you pass through the threshold of this new facility.
The gift shop is adorned with what one would have typically found in the forties or fifties dealerships, and every square inch is covered with some sort of motorcycle goodie of significant age.
If rows and rows of pristine museum quality motorcycles is what you are after, then this may not be your place. However, if you are interested in "The Real McCoy," then put this on your list of destinations.
I had an opportunity to share some rare downtime with Mike after he let me tear up the freshly-cut lawn with an original 1936 Indian flat track racer. We sat on the sprawling porch next to a 1947 police Servicar and talked about the new facility. Incidentally, the porch alone is worth the trip. I soon found myself healed from the strains of civilization by the babbling creek that surrounds the property and the cool, fresh country air.
"Our philosophy is preservation and education," says Silvio. "We stand to learn so much from history ... and those who created it. As time goes by, there is an ever decreasing number of American Veterans, Racers and everyday riders. Their knowledge and experiences are dying every day. It is our goal to capture and preserve these precious memories and relics from our country's past for future generations to come." (Did I mention that Mike is only 32 years old?)
"I also believe that these old machines need to be seen and heard! You don't have to twist my arm too hard to hear and see 'em run!" I witnessed this selflessness when Mike fired up a 1948 WR factory racer to the delight of the museum guests.
Well let me tell you folks, when I prodded Mike for information about what the expansion will look like, he just grinned and said, "You'll have to wait like everyone else, but I promise you it will blow you away! I know this place isn't huge, and we'll never have more than 40 bikes on display. But for us, we offer you the whole package!"
If it is anything close to the lobby, I am certain he is right. Mike and Jen have that knack for what we all yearn. The place really is something, and I can't quite put my finger on it! It must be the combination of the friendly atmosphere, and yes ... of course ... the old motorcycles!
