MG Cycle is located in Albany, Wisconsin, in the south central part of the state of Wisconsin, about half way between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi river. Albany is the second location for MG Cycle, and we've been here for over 10 years. MG Cycle began in 1996 in Brooklyn, Wisconsin, about 10 miles north of the current location. The original location was a rented 40 foot by 40 foot steel building that formerly housed an automotive and agricultural tire dealer, gasoline filling station, and in it's later life, a modest attempt at a convenience store. At the time we found that empty building, the MG Cycle business plan was to focus both on motorcycle service and on sales of parts and accessories for Moto Guzzi motorcycles. After a few years, it became evident that the parts and accessories side of the business was what the market really wanted. In particular, it was the mail order parts and accessories part of the business that was calling for more and more of our attention.
The parts department outgrew the original building sometime in early 2000, and later that year we secured a mortgage to construct our own warehouse style building in the next town to the south, which placed us on a fresh lot in what was known at that time as the
MG Cycle is owned by two Moto Guzzi enthusiasts (Rick and Gordon) who began riding and wrenching on Guzzis in the 1980s, which is starting to seem like quite a while ago. We know some of you guys are proud to be using the same valve cover gaskets for longer than that, but for the rest of us, 30 years is good chunk of time.
