Rocky Point Cycle (RPC) was established and opened for business in June of 1982 on Rocky Point Road in Gainesville, Florida; with significant waypoints in Ohio and West Virginia we are now located in Hudson, Massachusetts, about 35 miles west of Boston, and have been serving our customers for over 10 years at this location. The current owner, William (Bill) Blake, is an active motorcyclist with over 55 years of saddle time. Bill has won many awards for his builds both German and British; his builds emphasize reliability; a natural for RPC’s guiding principles.
