Bikers PHD has existed since 1994 for a singular purpose:

To help Harley riders ensure that their bikes will run smoother, go faster and last longer, period!

It’s a company that recognizes that owning a Harley encompasses a lifestyle that thrives on performance, is passionate about the growl of a finely tuned engine and loves the freedom that comes from opening up the throttle and enjoying the open road.

It’s because of these facts that owner, Gary Cave, has filled his business with people that not only work on bikes, but that are Harley riders themselves because who would know better how to optimize the performance of a client’s bike than people that live to get the most out of their own?

From custom head work and cylinder boring to engine repairs or even complete overhauls, Bikers PHD has the experts on staff to take your Harley to the next level so it becomes even more a reflection of YOU, and so you can get out there and do what you really want to be doing…RIDE.



Gary is what is known affectionately as a genuine “Speed Freak”. Motorcycles have been his passion from the moment he was a kid and, out  of a need to tinker, he took his dad’s bike apart in their garage. After  the yelling subsided, he put the bike back together and when it never  ran better or faster he was hooked on coaxing the best out of his own  and other people’s rides.


Vinnie is a factory trained Master Technician, there isn’t much he  hasn’t seen when it comes to fixing up and riding motorcycles. We think  of him as our in house shovelhead guru and drag bike aficionado.
