Owner, Gilby's Street Dept.

More Than 30 Years Experience

In business for over 30 years, Gilby knows his way around motorcycles, hot rods, painting, and pin-striping. He started pin-striping and lettering snowmobiles for friends when he was 13 years old. From there, he started to get paid as he did more semi-trucks and sign painting in high school. He started painting motorcycles right out of high school and was hired at Andersen Windows. While working at Andersen Windows, he still ran the pin-striping/lettering business and started a portable sandblasting business. He began sandblasting and painting heavy equipment for many years. In the late 1980s, he officially started his business and named it “Gilby’s Pin-striping and Lettering”. About 20 years later, he changed the name of the business to “Gilby’s Street Dept.” and has been growing since.
Gilby takes great pride in the shop’s quality of work and his dedicated employees. They also take pride in their work and a job well done. As a team, they are able to do all the work on a complete bike build in-house (except for chroming, cylinder boring, and head-porting) including: metal fab, welding, body work/restoration/repair, engine work, painting, and pin-striping. We look forward to servicing our current customers and drawing in new ones.
