Here at Ted's Motorcycle World, Inc. of Alton, Illinois we're proud of our tradition of bringing quality products and services to the St. Louis Metro Area...and rightly so. After all, we've been at it now for over 35 years!
The doors of Ted's Motorcycle World first opened in July of 1966. Original owner, Ted Burelson, and a staff of two employees manned the store until 1974 when consistant growth mandated the work force be increased.
The business continued to prosper, and four years later, Ted made the decision to take on a Honda franchise as well, beginning with 1981 model year bikes.
In February of 1997, Bill Stewart joined the staff at Ted's as General Manager. In December of 1999, when Ted announced his decision to retire, Bill opted to purchase the business. He and his team have helped Ted's Motorcycle World continue to realize a steady growth...in more aspects than just sales. Bill is often heard proudly boasting about the "biggest" sales team in the Midwest -- he also gladly invites anyone to bring in a scale if they think he's kidding!
All joking aside, business is still booming and we're still expanding to meet the growing needs of motorcycle enthusiasts throughout the St. Louis Metro area. We now employ a workforce some 30 people strong. In August of 2003, we opened our new BIGGER and BETTER facility -- we've got some wonderful surprises in store for you! But what's important is that our tradition of pride in the quality of our products and the services we provide is still evident in the way we deal with each and every customer that walks through our doors.
We invite you to come on in and have a look around. We think you'll be pleasantly surprised!
Don't let the name fool you. There's more to this place than motorcycles. You're sure to be pleased by our great selection of quality products including clothing, collectibles, gift items and more!
