ENF COMMUNITY MOTORCYCLE GARAGE

Building more than motorcycles through education and action in the custom motorcycle scene. 

" When I built my first bike, I was living in an apartment, trying to stay sober and get my life back together. I rented a small garage a couple of blocks away to build that bike. It sucked. It had two power outlets and no heat in the winter. I had no tools and no idea what the hell I was doing, but I loved being there. I pieced that bike together and felt so good about it during that first ride. It changed my life and my purpose. I want to make it possible for everyone to feel that way." - Cory Manning, Founder, ENF Community Garage

EnF Community Garage INC is a 501(c)3 tax deductible non-profit entity operating in Richmond VA.  Our mission is to encourage the motorcycle community to realize their own unique gifts of confidence and self-reliance.  Riding a motorcycle requires both of these qualities, and is a clear distinction in those who "get it" and those who don't.  Riding a motorcycle is not for everyone, but for those who "get it" there's nothing else like it.  Taking those qualities a step further, we encourage riders to pick up a wrench and learn how to repair and maintain their own motorcycles.  Learning these skills is not only empowering to riders, it's the act of lifting the veil to view the world from it's mechanical parts; parts that can be fixed, changed, and made better.  In a society full of disposable objects, wasted time, and meaningless relationships, we encourage fixing ones that are fixable, and building ones that last.  

We provide the tools, the space and the knowledge for you to maintain, repair or build your own motorcycle.  We are open to the public and offer hourly rates as well as monthly memberships.  When you use the community garage, attend a workshop, or make a donation, your money goes right back to your local motorcycle community in the way of tools, space, materials, events, etc. to keep our doors open for you.  Come check us out!
