While we are dedicated to the sport of Motorcycling, we are also dedicated to our environment. We handle and dispose of all used and/or un-needed petroleum as well as glycol base coolants in accordance with all OSHA regulations, EPA regulations / guide lines, local, state, and federal Laws.

About us:

As for myself I've done it all, worked in lumber yards, cleaned parking lots, stocked shelves, and flipped burgers as a kid. From there I drove a long haul truck for five years where I started to get my first taste of mechanic work. After driving, I worked as a tire changer and changed oil on long haul rigs until I worked up to pulling transmissions and rebuilding drive lines. After that I worked for South Eastern Container as an operator of a machine that pumped out a half million P.E.T bottles every 12 hours. I got fed up with that and went to work as a driller's helper with a drilling company out of Middle TN. There I worked my way up from drill helper to drill operator, and finally job boss on a few jobs. From there I went full time with the National Guard working on helicopters. I started out with the UH-60Q model Blackhawk (Medivac) program and moved onto the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior where I was certified to repair power train components on all 4 models of the U.S. Army's rotor wing aircraft. I have 2 deployments; one in support of the Ranger training Battalions based out of Ft Benning GA and Operation Enduring Freedom were I was based out of Mosul Iraq. I am now retired from the Military and I am working full time with Willis Cycle Works.

As for my wonderful wife Lynn, she is the reason Willis Cycle Works reopened after our last deployment to Iraq. Upon our return I received phone call after phone call of riders wanting there motorcycles worked on. I turned them down and recommended other shops until Lynn pushed me to reopen the shop and I'm glad she did. Lynn is a graduate of U.T. Chattanooga, a veteran of Desert Storm (the original push into Iraq) as well as Operation Enduring Freedom, has an accumulation of over 28 years in the military, and does a great job putting up with me. She is now retired from the National Guard. If your looking for a home or need to sale your house please feel free to call her at 865-599-4236. You can find her web site at
