GREAT NEWS!! We are now open for business at our new shop! The new address is 385 S. Main St in Brewer, Maine, right across from VanRaymond Outfitters.


Welcome to PanikSwitch Cycles – Home to Bangor, Brewer and Central Maine’s favorite downhome, downeast and down-to-earth Motorcycle mechanic, builder, chopper, powder-coater, tire-changin’, oil spewin’ motorcycle fanatic!


At PanikSwitch Cycles, we pride ourselves in being one of the very few shops in Maine that services and repairs most ALL makes and models of motorcycles, ATV’s and snowmobiles.

Stock, custom, choppers, bobbers, stretched, cut, lowered..we can make your baby purr like a kitten or roar like a rabid lion. We take every precaution to make sure that every aspect of your motorcycling and is safe, and reliable. Not many “mechanics” have the meticulous eye for detail that we have. Attention to detail is the most important factor in riding today. No matter what the call, we can deliver! Anything from simple tire changes, tune-ups, oil changes, bearing replacements, electrical, charging systems all the way to stretching or hardtailing the frame, custom ride height adjustments, stock or aftermarket part replacement, PanikSwitch Cycles is the place Central Maine goes to to get it done.

We specialize in customizing your bike the way that YOU want. Not by just bolting on grips and air cleaner covers, but by modifying your bike to look like no other. Unique isn’t buying a pre-built bike that someone else thought was “cool”. It starts by buying a bike, new or used, tearing into it, then reassembling it with a plan in mind, a mission to make everything work together. Bolt ons’ are for the rich and casual riders…we’re not rich, nor do we ride casually! Getting us to store our bikes away for the winter would take an act of congress bigger than Obama-Care.

Winter is coming folks! Get your snowmobile serviced BEFORE you hit the trails!

Short story for an overcast day . . .I’ve been riding since 1971, have owned more bikes then I should have ( just kidding to many is not possible ) and while searching for a battery Monday for my BMW after being told by 4 other’s anywhere from 3 days to a week at best I’d giving up, and only by chance stopped at their shop not even thinking battery just saw a bike on a hitch being unloaded ( nice hitch mounted carrier ) not only was I told they could probable have my battery in tue at the latest wed . . . . I was not home very long when the phone rang battery’s in ! It’s refreshing to find a shop that goes the extra mile so we all can ! ! ! ! ! ! !

  3. I’m looking for a motor cycle mechanic that can come to me and fix a dirty carb on a 1983 kawasaki kz 750 ltd. I just got the bike and have had to do alot of work on it. It was at first glance and ride what i thought a nice bike. but…. i was not told the real truth about the bikes condition. again i trusted another person. im trying to take a one time vacation for two weeks and go to my old home town 425 miles from here and want to be safe. is there a mechanic out there that can help me? Thank-you. Paul

  4. Yessir, We can! Call us to setup an appointment for us to look at your bike, and we can go from there. Thanks! JD

  5. need to know if you guys can take a look at my 2013 special addition hayabusa it fell over taking it off my lift and has been scratched up can you paint plastic and repair cracks in plastic ???

    1. Hi Tony – We refer all body repairs for custom machines to Boyds Custom Art in Glenburn. He does fantastic work, and can make it look like nothing ever happened, for a very reasonable cost.

    1. Not exactly sure if it’s something we can tackle, but if you can bring them in, I can take a look-see and let you know. Thanks! JD

    1. It all depends on what needs done. Give us a shout during normal business hours (Tues-Fri 10-6, Sat 10-5) and let’s see what needs done! JD

  6. I have an old motorcycle that I’d love to repair and start riding again. I don’t want it to be customized and changed a lot, I just want it be run again. PanikSwitch Cycles performs those services as well, right?

  7. Just found u on the internet. Are u in Brewer or Hermon? I see u work on all bikes. I have a 2006 Road King. I need a tire mounted and balanced. I have the wheel off and will bring it and the tire in. Is this something u will do? Thank You.

    1. Yessir, we can do that. We are located at 385 S Main St, in Brewer. Right across from VanRaymonds. Drop it off anytime during regular business hours: Tues-Fri 10-6, Sat 10-5.

  8. Hi there i was wondering if you could do the frame of a 99 yamaha yz 250 and how much it might be? Thanks Heather

    1. Hi Heather – What are looking at having done to your frame? Powder coated? We’ll have the new, bigger oven in place in about a week or two, and should be able to do your frame quite easily. Ballpark price (since we don’t have a pricing plan in place yet for frames) will be dependent on how much prep work is involved – Bare frame would be about $450, any prep work is additional, such as stripping the old coating off.

  9. Hello, I have a 2004 suzuki GSXR 750 that was layed down causing one of the left rearset mounting tabs to snap. I have the other half of the broken tab and I’m wondering if you are able to weld it back on or fabricate a new tab. Thank you.

    1. Bring in the mount, and we’ll take a look at it. Might be less expensive and easier to find a good used one to replace it though. Sorry to hear of your plight. JD

  10. hav a NEW 2014 tao tao 50 scooter an cant seem to get the dang thing started . it must be something small i us cant fig. it out an bout ready to toss the thing in trash. any ideas, if brought in cud u figure it out??

    1. Hey there Josh – Sorry, but we don’t work on scooters. You might try Bangor Motorsports or Friend and Friend in Orono. They may be able to help you better than we can. Thanks! JD
