About

Kersting's Cycle Center sits between the tiny Indiana towns of North Judson and Winamac about 110 miles due north of Indianapolis. "We're in the country, so it's us and horses and Harley® H.O.G.®," Jim says, adding that some of those horses and hogs have served as payment over the years. "I've taken them in trade before, everything anybody wanted to trade," he says. "I still think it's a pretty good system. There's always someone wanting to buy horses and the pigs got put in the freezer."

In 1960, he married Nella, and they began work on their dealership's new home. "We built it out of cement blocks, and it was 28 feet wide and 70 feet long," Jim says. "The first 30 feet on the west end was our living quarters." Jim and Nella's two eldest children, Sandy and Randy, were born during the seven years the Kersting's lived in that building. The youngest, Jason, was born after they moved into a little home in North Judson.

Thing's have changed a little since 1960. Kersting's Cycle Center has grown to 27,000 sq. ft. of showroom and service space. We carry Harley-Davidson®, Yamaha®, and Excelsior-Henderson® motorcycles. Kersting's also offer a full line of used vehicles. Our service departments are staffed with factory trained technicians specializing in Harley-Davidson®, and Yamaha, motorcycles, dirt bikes, and ATV's.

Kersting's needs every bit of space it can find because of Jim's vintage collection, which boasts more than 100 bikes...and is still growing. "I've got them from Ariel to Zundapp," he says. "No duplications. They all run, too, even the ones up in the rafters. All I have to do is put in gas and oil. I don't want them if they don't run." When you come to visit Kersting's Cycle Center, just ask Jim to tell you about his latest favorite in the museum. He may even start it up and take it for a ride out in front of the store. Admission to the museum is a $5.00 donation and it's a great way to spend the afternoon cruising through yester year.
