It was a sunny Saturday afternoon in early March when a man walked into the shop on Park Avenue and announced that he needed a motorcycle repair.
The shopkeeper didn’t know how much he wanted to pay for it, but after seeing the guy drive by, he went along with it.
“I said, ‘Why do you need a motorcycle?’
He said, `I want to buy it.’
So we went into the store, and he brought out a motorcycle,” says Steve Stolzenberg, owner of Star Shopping.
Stolzy’s motorcycle was on display in a small display case, which was filled with the shop’s merchandise, including a T-shirt with a picture of Stolz and a sign with the words, “Get a motorcycle.”
“We thought, ‘Oh, he’s buying a new bike,'” says Stolczek, who has been selling motorcycles for nearly a decade.
He eventually paid about $500 for his new bike, which he says was the nicest, most reliable, and most fun motorcycle he had ever owned.
“The motorcycle was a real joy to ride.
It was super comfortable,” Stolzey says.
The bike he bought for $500 is now worth about $8,000.
And while the business is now closed, Stolzi and his wife, Trina, have started a new business that sells bikes for more than $10,000 and they hope to open it soon.
“We had a great ride, but now we are going to take it back and do a lot of repairs,” Stoli says.
He hopes to bring back a few more of his old bikes.
For Stolzniewski, the motorcycle is his passion. “
If you are looking to buy a new motorcycle, and you need one of these bikes, then just go and look around,” he adds.
For Stolzniewski, the motorcycle is his passion.
“It is my passion,” he says.
“When I first started, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do with my life.
My wife and I decided to have kids.
And now we have three kids and two grandkids.
So it’s not just about what we are doing now.
It’s about our children’s future.”
Stolza is currently the owner of a motorcycle shop in the heart of Manhattan.
He says he would love to open a bike shop on West 46th Street.
But he’s worried about competition.
“With a lot, a lot more bikes, there is no competition,” he said.
“And we don’t have a lot to sell.”

“There are so many of us out there,” he tells us.
“My wife is going to be the owner.
She’s going to make sure everything goes according to plan.”
