The motorcycle trade takes hold in the city | New


CENTERVILLE –– Whether it’s a need for a used motorcycle, winter bike storage, a complete rebuild or a tire or battery change, residents have now a place to turn.

Rumble Motor Sports, located at 2030 Main St. in Centerville, opened on April 1 after moving from Spring Lake Park, where it has been located since its founding in 2012.

“This place was getting way too small to do what we wanted to do. We didn’t have a large parking lot, we didn’t have space to expand, we weren’t off a main road, ”said co-owner Gary Spanier. “A lot of our clientele comes from this area… Centerville, Hugo, Circle Pines, Lino Lakes, Blaine – and it’s a great location with Main Street.

Gary co-owns the business with his brother Curt; his son Matt is a mechanic / technician. Jason Clampit of Kokesh Motorcycles is also a mechanic / technician, after Rumble Motor Sports bought the business from Clampit four years ago.

“Matt was really the catalyst because he was going to Bemidji State University and decided he wasn’t going to be the businessman. He’s always loved working with his hands, ”Gary said. “We have collectively decided that we should enter the auto industry.”

What started as a “small repair shop” has grown into a full service shop. They can do oil changes, transmission, brakes, electricity, installation of accessories, exhaust, batteries, handlebar installations

and more. The company offers many used motorcycles of all brands available for purchase and offers a full line of leather and accessories. The company is also a Dunlop Pro dealer, which means customers get bigger discounts on tires.

“Our labor rates have not changed since our opening. We have all the latest and greatest service manuals and diagnostic equipment. Anything you can imagine doing, we sure can do, ”Gary said. “People go to these outlet stores and they have been paying too much and without their motorcycles for so long. This is one of the main reasons we opened this business.

They pride themselves on getting motorcycles in and out on a timely basis. “There is no traditional two week wait for your motorcycle. We don’t want to keep them here, we want you to have them, ”Gary said.

Honesty is important. “We don’t want to tell people things that aren’t true, so we never want to promise too much and not deliver,” Curt said.

The company also offers winter storage from October 1 to April 15. Rumble Motor Sports will store the motorcycles at its Spring Lake Park site in an air-conditioned building. While bicycles are in storage, customers receive a 10% discount on any service. Battery offers are also plugged in so that the batteries remain fully charged.

While preparing for the opening of the building, Gary and Curt kept everything local, including the paving, electricity and garage doors. “This has always been the goal. How can we support the community and thus build lasting relationships? Curt said.

Rumble Motor Sports also does ATV repairs and next spring the company hopes to build another building to start selling them.

The company will hold a grand opening on June 24. She is also planning to host a Support Our Troops event in July or August with the Army recruiting office in Blaine. For more information visit
