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. Now it’s 2018 and we have yet again outgrew what we thought would be enough space, thanks to you! Our brand new facility is 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 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.

The Crew

William “Sparky” Tindall

(Shop Management)

I am a returning employee of Chariots of Fire. I worked for Jan and Reine from 2005 to 2009 when I went to the USAF. I was injured while deployed in Afghanistan, shortly after returning home the USAF medically retired me. Upon my retirement from the military, I was offered a returning position as the parts manager at COFC, I am thrilled to be back, where I can make new acquaintances and reconnect with the people who I interacted with years ago.

Amanda “Rosie” Lotter

(Helmet/Apparel Management)

I’m originally from Chicago and moved to Lincoln County in 2016. I’ve been the Counter Clerk here since July of 2017 and couldn’t be happier. I manage whatever I happen to come across on the retail end of the shop. From sizing you for that new helmet to organizing paperwork, I’m always ready to help keep our customers satisfied with a smile on my face.
