Bishop's Performance is now closed
Like many of you, we have been trying to cope with our own financial struggles over the past few years, and our business has been feeling the pain as well. The economic climate in the Detroit area has been particularly bad, operating expenses and product costs have increased, and it has been increasingly difficult to find good help. Now, serious health issues have forced us to make a difficult decision, and it is with great sorrow that we announce that we are closing down Bishop’s Performance.
This has been a heartbreaking decision to have to make, but we simply no longer have a choice. Among other health issues, Bill ("Hammer") has been suffering from degenerative disc disease which has caused increasing back and neck pain for several years now, and has finally reached the point where he can no longer work. With luck, he may be able to resume porting heads some day in the future, but we just don’t know ...
Even though Bill has retired, I am still around, working in the parts department at Motor City Harley-Davidson in Farmington Hills, so if you need parts or accessories for your Harley, be sure to come and see me! =o)
We are going to keep this site active for the time being so that we can continue to share the many photos, videos, and dyno graphs that we have accumulated. Bill and I extend our heartfelt thanks to all of you, our customers, family, and friends who have supported us over the years. It was a fantastic ride!
Sincerely, Amy Bishop
