History of The Vic Shop

How we got here and where we’re headed.

The Vic Shop’s owner Rylan Vos started working on Victory’s in 2002, The Vic Shop was formed in Rylan’s garage in 2009, and lead technician Gabe Grenell was added in 2012 after a move to our current facility. Together, Rylan and Gabe are The Vic Shop. Both of them are native Iowan’s, both natural gearheads.  Together with his wife and two children, Rylan lives on a rural acreage near to the Shop. Gabe, along with his wife and young child live in nearby Des Moines. Gabe went to a trade college to work on the “other” American V-twin, but has only worked on Vic’s since graduation and hire at The Vic Shop!  

Future plans call for an all new, purpose-built shop to be constructed down the road from our current location. The new shop will allow us to continue to provide the best possible service to your Victory with more shop space, a dedicated dyno room, and a showroom to sell “better than stock” Victory bikes from. Plus, a more convenient location, closer to Interstate 80.
