Paynesville Minnesota. Zap Leather & Cycle: A rural motorcycle shop with leatherwear frontage and restoration/repair workshop behind. The owners Chuck and Tiff Koshiol gave me, my father-in-law Warren, and brother-in-law Dan their ‘nickel tour’ of the outfit. The front window display was a fifties Indian, and not your usual v-twin Springfield MA moto but actually a rebadged Royal Enfield. A taste of things to come. The back ‘shop was a great space for all aspects of two-wheeled work. On the stands was a cafe’d BMW airhead, another aforementioned Indian, a neat little flathead single of misty origin and a terrific Norton being ‘sorted’ for some lucky customer. Nice details to ensure everyday smooth running was assured. Eye Candy? Like Swiss chocolate!
