Ron and Lew Elliott House

About the Artist/Site

Brothers Ron and Lew Elliott opened their motorcycle shop, SuperCycle, in 1971. They build motorcycles (including one commissioned by Elvis Presley and given to him exactly one year before he died) and sell custom bikes, parts, leather gear and accessories; the shop is ornamented with numerous examples of all of these objects, as well as wooden tiki sculptures, vehicle and gas plaques, and more.

Their home, which is next to Supercycle, is a three-story wooden A-frame, which the Elliotts and their wives renovated. It includes several theme rooms, including a scuba-themed room and a replica of their mother’s 1930s dining room. There is a birdcage built into the wall, a party room with band stage and full bar, a darkroom, a wall with thousands of pinned-up photos of their friends, a laser-lit interior waterfall, and a sculpture garden.

The house is not generally viewable by the public, but the shop is open regular business hours.
