The County Bikes Motorcycle Shop is a building I built for Arealight's Motorcycle contest but with a few adjustments, is now a shop in my layout!

County Bikes is a motorcyle store in Albany, New York. Founded in 1978, the shop sells brand name bikes that are shipped from County Bikes Storage, also in Albany.

A neat and functional shop in a nice color scheme. I like those cool biker characters in front of the shop too.

A very nice MOC, samthelegoman1! :thumbup:

This looks very nice and authentic! I even like it how you added the stickers so that it looks much more detailed and realistic.
When I saw the first pic which is a bit dark I immediately thought about some dubious figures selling something in front of the shop. :laugh:

Very well done! :thumbup:

I love it!  What's great about this MOC is the smaller sized building.  Lego should offer a small collection of little shops like this.  They would be fairly easy builds, but nicely detailed, and offer a lot of playability.  Great job!  I'd like that little WWII Indy motorcycle at 50% off please.  

Let's see, does the shop buy old cycles as well?

The shop is amazing, but I cannot see any brick-bilt bike...
I found curious the diverse of yellow and fleshie minifigs.

Thanks everyone.  I actually had the color scheme from the church in Town Plan.  I broke it and thought- what to do with these pieces?  I decided to make a shop of some sort.  I knew that the set didn't come with many same color pieces, so I had to use a lot windows.  I heard of the Arealight Motorcycle contest on Kaminoan's and entered it.  I won 3rd place! :grin:
I eventually broke it :hmpf_bad: and am now turning it into a modular town building (compatible with CC,GG, and MS).

Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

This is a great little shop Sam. I like Rad Rudy with his welder and welders helmut. Nice details!

I agree Brickster, if LEGO offered some small town sets like this, they would probably sell like hotcakes!
