The Trott family has been in the motorcycle industry for 90+ years. After starting out in Birmingham, England they moved the business into London. My great grandfather, Fred Trott I, and grandfather Fred Trott II, sold anything from Triumphs, BSAs, Arials and Vincents to Vespas, Lambrettas, James, Nortons, etc. Really, anything they could get their hands on. My Father, Fred Trott III, moved from London, England to San Antonio, Texas in 1969 and went to work at Cycle World on Broadway. They were The Honda, Triumph and Harley dealer in town. Then, in 1978, Fred left Cycle World and opened his own motorcycle shop which is, to this day, known as The Motorcycle Shop. We have been selling all types and makes of used motorcycles, scooters, dirt bikes, atvs, and sometimes watercraft ever since we opened. The Motorcycle Shop has and always will be a family owned and operated buisness. The family now consists of Fred and Gwen Trott, my brother, Fred Trott IV, (who moved back to London, England to start his own motorcycle shop), and my wife and I, Jason and Jenny Trott.
In the summer of 2000 we started a new venture by taking on a new scooter line known as Kymco scooters…and boy has it taken off! We keep in stock their whole line of scooters, motorcycle, and a few of their atvs. Since then, we have also taken on 3 other lines of scooters: Genuine Scooter Company, CPI and Qlink. We usually have about one hundred different scooters in stock. We also continue to sell used motorcycles and scooters and whatever oddities we can get our hands on.
The Motorcyle Shop has held numerous motorcycle runs and rides throughout the years. It seems to be that our most popular one ever is now our “Spring Fling” scooter ride! This past April was our 6th annual ride at which we had over 115 scooters participate. In the summers, we have a Wednesday night ride out to Specht’s Country Store near Bulverde. What started out as a weekly ride on motorcycles years ago has now switched to, you guessed it, SCOOTERS! If you haven’t made it out yet, we meet at The Motorcycle Shop at 6:30pm Wed. evenings. Give us a call!
