Joel is turning his love for motorcycles into a money-making venture,
opening his own bike store in his New York home town.
The finishing touches are being added to 20th Century Cycles in Oyster Bay, Long Island.
The shop will sell bikes and accessories and serve as a hang out
joint for fellow two-wheel enthusiasts. The singer’s new venture is named
after an exhibition he staged in New York last year to show off his own
impressive collection of fast rides.
The music icon has long been obsessed with motorbikes old and new. In 2005, he set up a restoration business with friend Rob Schneider to rebuild old cycles, and he is frequently seen riding
around his hometown on a vintage British bike from World War II.
