Welcome to Hoban Brothers Motorcycles, your premier destination for all things Harley-Davidson in the heart of East Central Wisconsin. Nestled within the picturesque Irish settlement town of Osman, our family-owned full-service Harley-Davidson service shop has been a cornerstone of the motorcycle community since 1980. With a prime location between the bustling metropolises of Milwaukee and Green Bay, we proudly serve enthusiasts along the scenic Lake Michigan coastline.

Our Story

Founded in 1980 by the Hoban family's unwavering passion for Harley-Davidson Motorcycles, we've spent over 40+ years honing our craft with complete engine rebuilds for 45", Knuckleheads, Panheads, Shovelheads, Evolutions, Twin Cams, and Milwaukee 8 Engines. This journey of knowledge and experience led to the birth of Darkhorse Motor Company's Crankworks division, dedicated to delivering unparalleled lower end services/products and providing the unshakable foundation for top engine builds, both on the track and the street. Our Hoban Brothers Racing Team has seamlessly merged with America's premier Road racing series, racing on Harley-Davidson & Buell motorcycles for 25+ years, celebrating multiple victories and podium finishes. Our most recent feats include competing with a Harley-Davidson Road Glide in the Moto-America King of the Baggers racing series and the Bagger Racing League.

Our story commenced in 1980, intertwining with the inception of Hoban Brothers Motorcycles and a legacy that thrives today. Nurtured by an abiding affection for Harley-Davidson Motorcycles, our journey set sail on a mission to offer unparalleled service, exceptional performance parts, and masterful craftsmanship. As time has passed, our culture has matured, embracing heritage, championing innovation, and embodying the very spirit of the open road.
