Ozark Harley-Davidson® Store History
Jack & Debi Fleming have been riding motorcycles for many years and even had their first date on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. Jack has been a motorcycle enthusiast as far back as he can remember and his enthusiasm for motorcycles is contagious. During the many trips and family vacations the Fleming family has taken, the local Harley Dealership was always sought out so a custom Harley-Davidson® shirt could be bought.
The Fleming family all worked together in a family owned trucking company in the Kansas City, MO area. In 1997 after having sold his share of the trucking company, Jack found out there was a Harley-Davidson Dealership for sale in Lebanon, MO. After a family meeting, it was decided to apply to become a dealer and purchase the dealership in Lebanon.
After many months of paperwork and waiting, Jack and Debi were finally approved by Harley-Davidson to become dealers. They purchased the dealership from Don & Pat Grimm and reopened the dealership under their ownership on September 1, 1998.
Having been on the other side of the counter for so many years, the Fleming family wanted their dealership to be known for outstanding customer service. They know what it's like to be in the customers shoes and they want to do whatever they can to help fulfill peoples dreams of living the Harley lifestyle.
In June of 2001, they were able to move out of the small, cramped building they started out in to the much more spacious building next to the Highway. They were able to expand their dream even further by opening a second dealership on May 5, 2005 in Osage Beach, MO.
From having started with just the four family members, this Harley-Davidson family has expanded to over 30 members between the two dealerships. This big happy family makes it their mission every day to make people's Harley dreams come true.
