Tim Lucas, owner of Harley Haven, started out wrenching on a few of his friends' Harleys in his garage. Word soon got out and those few friends turned into many new faces and lots of traffic. It became impossible to park at our house and you usually had to move several motorcycles to get to your own. It was apparent that we had to find a location to open a real repair shop before the neighbors voted to kick us out of the neighborhood.

A good friend had a building in Cayce, not far from our home; we signed the lease, got the licenses and officially opened our doors in April of 1981. This aftermarket shop known as "Harley Haven" went from part-time to full-time for both of us. Scary with four children at home to feed and clothe, but successful. We eventually purchased the leased building, as well as the lot next to us and expanded the building. Not long after, Harley-Davidson® contacted us and informed us we could not use the word "Harley" in our business name. The shop name changed to "The Haven" and it was business as usual.

We then began to explore the chance of obtaining an authorized Harley-Davidson® dealership. After some time and much correspondence, the local district manager for Harley-Davidson® paid us a visit. The wheels starting turning, we purchased a lot, built a new building with the hopes that we might possibly become a dealer and were finally approved for an authorized Harley-Davidson® dealership in 1990. This was a dream come true for both of us. Needless to say, we requested the name "Harley Haven" for our dealership.

We eventually purchased the existing Columbia dealer and combined the two businesses into one. We outgrew the original building in Cayce even though an addition doubled our square footage. Plans were soon underway to find a suitable location and build a new facility. Property was located and purchased; then the fun began, designing the building. The new building "wish list", which we had kept for several years, was finally turning into a reality. In March 2006, we finally moved to our current location off I-26 in Irmo.

We are fortunate to be able to earn a living in a business that we love and enjoy as much as we do Harley-Davidson®. But the fact remains that we could not be where we are today if not for our customers and supporting staff. To all of you we say "thanks" from the bottom of our hearts as we celebrate our 20th Anniversary as a Harley-Davidson® dealer in August 2010.
