Searching for the right bike for our 8 year old, my husband & I decided on the 2021 Honda CRF110... then came the problem of finding one before his birthday. We live near Dayton, Ohio and traveled to our more local shops only to realize what we wanted would have to be ordered and definitely would not be in time for our guy's birthday. Luckily came across Thortons from looking on CycleTrader.com and when I called to inquire about their available bikes, they had 2 of what we were looking for! Tracy was very friendly, knowledgable and provided the best customer service! We made the hour and 45 minute drive and it was well worth it! I would recommend this shop to anyone and everyone! Great selection, great people, great service... can't go wrong! Thanks again Tracy and Thortons, Boston was ecstatic to get his bike!! (Employee: Tracy Thomas)

Welcome to Thornton's Motorcycle Sales

Thornton's Motorcycle Sales began many years ago when John Thornton decided to sell and repair used motorcycles. He did this mostly as a hobby, as he worked third shift at a factory and did his "motorcycling" during the day. In 1970, John made the decision to make motorcycling a career. He built a very small block building on the property beside his home, and started business. The first franchise carried was Hodaka. Suzuki was added in the spring of 1975. In 1976, the business had outgrown the little block building, and a larger facility was built next door. (This "larger" building has been added onto many times. There are now approximately 24,000 sq feet under roof, including warehouse.) Several more franchises have been added over the years, including Honda in 1979, and Kawasaki in 1993.
