|Service is more than a department at St. Paul Harley-Davidson® — it’s who we are... |
Boasting more than 250 years of collective Harley-Davidson® motorcycle experience and performance savvy, we are not just factory trained, we are real-world tested professionals.
In addition to outstanding maintenance and customer service, our model Service Department is also well known for custom and performance work.
St. Paul Harley-Davidson® is equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and affiliated only with the best services and products available for you, our valued customers.
SPHD has a continuous training program that keeps our staff up to date and some of the most knowledgeable service professionals in the industry.
We are fully staffed with fourteen factory-trained technicians (seven of whom are ranked as Master Technicians and/or Masters of Service Technology by Harley-Davidson Motor Company), four Service Advisors, two Service Parts Specialists and five Service Assistants. All supported by our Service Dispatcher, the Service Administrator, a Warranty Administrator, and Service Manager.
SPHD’s Service Manager is Brent Godwin.
Brent has had an impressive career with Harley-Davidson® and Buell® that began right out of High School as an entry-level technician. He quickly rose through the ranks and went on to work at several factory authorized dealerships and one aftermarket shop along the way.
Having performed nearly all roles a dealership has to offer and every phase of Service Operations, Brent left the dealer network in 1995 to become an instructor for MMI. There he taught the Harley-Davidson® late model and specialty courses for entry–level techs, antique restoration, engine rebuild & performance and factory PHD classes for dealership technicians.
Catching the eye of Harley-Davidson University in Milwaukee, he was offered a position at HDU as a technical trainer and curriculum developer in 1997. In the course of the next thirteen years Brent moved from HDU, to engineering and several managerial roles throughout the Quality, Reliability and Technical Service Division of Harley-Davidson Motor Company. Landing here at St. Paul Harley-Davidson® in 2010 as our Service Manager.
