A certified repair shop serving all makes and models, 58th Street Customs builds and maintains gleaming, two-wheeled roadsters for future sessions of pavement-carving. Low-riding choppers and high-end sport bikes stop in for services such as basic tune-ups, brake service, or a detailing of chrome-plated piping. Mechanics restyle bikes in accordance with stylistic preference or the reading of tea leaves floating in a mug of oil, in addition to adorning cycles with dramatic and custom paint jobs.
The experts at 58th Street Customs can partner with an extensive list of name-brand vendors such as West Coast Choppers and MGS to find a missing part, or use these vast resources to design and piece together a singular, one-off bike design. The gearhead utopia welcomes all vehicles in the motorcycle family, including any scrappy little scooter or Yamaha that thinks it's a piano.
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states.

Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, factory maintenance services, batteries, belt replacement, and fluid services.
Gettel Nissan's certified technicians restore vehicles to vital versions of their new-car selves with thorough automotive treatments. An oil change leaves steely steeds moving as smoothly as a lounge singer on rollerblades.

Gettel Nissan's relaxing atmosphere allows patrons to kick back as they wait for the one-hour treatment to be completed. Enjoy complimentary refreshments while catching snippets of news and sports on the flat-panel TV or using its reflection to ward off surprise ennui attacks.
