Meet the Team

Chariots of Fire Customs first opened its doors as a full service motorcycle shop in March 2005 at its first location in Moscow Mills, Missouri. After undergoing 2 expansions, owners Jan and Reine Knobbe decided it was time to move into a larger location just a few miles North to Troy, Missouri in 2012. In 2018 we made the final move to our brand new facility just a couple more miles North from the old Troy location. 2113 Alexandria Crossing, Troy, Missouri is where we will be from now on. We built this shop from the ground up and look forward to continue providing great services to you for many more years to come. Be sure to check out our calendar for information about our annual show and other events.

Custom is in our name. Quality is in our products. Service is our reputation.
