The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

Established in 2008, this unique, full service motorcycle shop is located on scenic Highway One in southern Mendocino County.  Nestled in the historic coastal town of Point Arena, the shop specializes in vintage to modern European motorcycles, though all major brands of bikes are welcomed.

 The unusual shop name reflects a love of the Robert Pirsig book, as well as a belief in Zen Business Practices; Quality Services at Fair Prices. Rejecting the predominant business paradigm, which tends toward exploitation, The Zen House owners, David Harris and Kelley Litle, work to establish mutually beneficial, long-lasting relationships with their clients.

 These business practices, combined with Harris' mechanical knowledge and skill, draw a wide variety of motorcyclists to the shop.  New customers are often astounded at the diversity of motorcycles and the variety of on-going projects they find at The Zen House!! 

 Motorcyclists across North America bring in their rare Italian bikes for restorations, engine rebuilds and performance work.  It is quite common to see a vintage Ducati Desmo, or a modernTT race motor being assembled.  Rare Mondials, Motobis, and Aermacchis are all common sights at The Zen House; as well as the beloved vintage British standards.

 The shop also draws in riders from the Bay Area, Marin and Sonoma Counties for routine maintenance on their Moto Guzzis, Ducatis, BMWs, Cagivas, Triumphs, KTMs, and Husquvarnas.   Many of these Zen House clients schedule their services to coincide with a long weekend on the coast, enjoying the many attractions of Point Arena.

 Local Mendocino County residents and world travelers are pleased to find the Zen House carries all the motorcycling products they may need for their Hondas, Harleys, Yamahas andSuzukis; from oil, batteries, tires and filters, the shop has what motorcyclists need, all at affordable prices.

 The Zen House has established itself as one of the premiere northern California motorcycle shops.  Next time you are in the vicinity, stop by and experience ZEN, you'll be glad you did.
