Currently operating as a motorcycle service business in the city’s inner south, Greaser’s is hot on the heels of Brisbane’s Moto Arcade, behind the Kustom Kommune in Melbourne, Rising Sun Garage (Sydney) and Spadille in Perth where anybody can build the bike of their dreams using the tools, workspace and in-house experts of the facility.
Current proprietors of Greaser’s motorcycle workshop Gerrard and Josephine say they have seen a dramatic increase in bike owners coming to them for a better understanding of
motorcycle maintenance that they were struggling to keep up with demand.
They have therefore kickstarted a crowd-funding campaign to generate a cash-injection to set up a new inner-city DIY garage.
Similar to their interstate counterparts, the Greaser’s business model includes an annual membership allowing members access to garage space and tools to work on their own
motorcycles, with the aid of training classes. In addition, there are plans for regular events, organised rides and a rockabilly themed eatery.
“We’ve been hatching a plan to create an innercity hub and community for Adelaide’s motorcycle lovers for a while now,” Gerrard explains. “By partnering with other
business and individuals we’re hoping to build our collective expertise to help each other out and have lots of fun while doing it.”
