No Warning: Multimillion Dollar Motorcycle Business Closes Unexpectedly

Midwest Cycle Center is located off of highway 65 behind Lambert’s. Just a couple days ago their lot was full with motorcycles and cars. Now the doors are locked and the voice mailbox is full.

Over a dozen customers say they have unfinished business with Midwest Motorcycle Center.

“I paid one thousand dollars down,” said Toni Nehls for KY3. Nehls just bought a seventeen thousand dollar Harley.

“I don’t have a title so I can’t get a license for my bike. I have paid for gap insurance. I won’t have that now. The bike has seven thousand miles on it and now we don’t have a warranty,” she said.

KY3 contacted the city of Ozark and asked about the status of the business licence and was told the license was never renewed for 2017.

“They’ve been an accredited business with us. They show a three and a half million dollar a year revenue stream. People don’t go from a multimillion revenue stream to shut the door and walk away … that’s weird. That’s very strange. We don’t see that very often at all,” said Jon Anfinson with the Better Business Bureau.
