My story

When I started my cycle shop in 2004, I had no idea what to name it. My dad suggested "Pistol Pete's." Honestly, I didn't care what the name was; I wanted to build high-performance motors and work on bikes.

Over the years, I'm fortunate to have built a reputation with my customers and peers, and it has created a lot of personal and professional growth.

With growth comes change, and I’ve decided to make two significant changes to my business. The first is the name change from Pistol Pete’s to Nowaskey Extreme Performance. I believe that every Harley-Davidson® cycle that leaves my shop has my name on it, so changing it to my last name makes the most sense.

The second chapter of my story is the announcement of the launch of Nowaskey Performance Products, with the first being a set of remote reservoir shocks. There will be more information coming, but I can say that they are unrivaled in the performance industry.
Finally, many changes are coming so if you want to stay up to date, follow me on social media.
