MotoFactory closed?

Rode by MotoFactory on SE 50th this afternoon during what would be their regular hours. Locked up tight and the gate chained.

Google Maps says "closed permanently" but I can't find any reference to it actually shutting down or a reason for it anywhere else. Their website is intact and says nothing about it. Anyone know what's up there?

Wow, telephone, what a concept. It's like banging the rocks together.

OK I've called. They still do restorations, builds and customizations on an appointment basis, they've just closed the front door to walk-ins. I let them know that Google's information is a little overstated.

Sorry, I just mentioned what I would have done personally. Can't always trust Google.

Just had this same issue with the place where I work.

Google maps has us showing up as closed. We were able to fix it same day.

Hopefully the guy is a little computer savy and can get it updated with google as yeah, most people are going to use google maps...

No, I was being self-deprecating -- and slipping in a Douglas Adams reference. I'm long out of the habit of using the phone for things that don't require the other person's immediate attention, and I forget other people aren't the same way.

TBH I was also sort of curious to see if someone on here who knew them would respond; they come with a strong recommendation from the folks at See See Motorcycles, but I haven't worked with them yet.
