Our History - Although Rusty's Cycle Werx has only been in business a short time, owner/chief mechanic Jon Dean is no stranger to the world of motorcycles. Around the age of 10, with his sister Lori's encouragement, he graduated to riding her Honda 50 - then her 175,her 350 and finally her 750! Thank you Lori!

The first bike that was Jon's was a 1947 Triumph 500. His first Harley was an FLH Shovelhead.

Jon's passion for motorcycles led him to work in sales for Kegel's Harley Davidson in Rockford, Illinois. Kegel's HD is  the oldest factory authorized Harley Davidson dealership in the world! Eager to work with his hands, Jon's creative side took over and he began building custom motorcycles for several shops that he co-owned in Illinois.

In 2007 Jon ventured to Tucson where he found the year-round riding addicting. He went to work in sales for Harley Davidson again, both at the Tucson dealership and in Sierra Vista....but found something missing in the corporate world.

Jon opened Rusty's Cycle Werx in March 2015.

Jon's passion for and deep seated knowledge of motorcycles shows in the quality of workmanship, attention to detail and concern for your safety which is infused in every bike he works on.

Jon's goal at Rusty's is to provide the best hands-on service and work in town!

No excuses...no BS. You and your bike deserve no less!
