GOSHEN — The perfect meeting between form and function is the goal when Janus Motorcycles builds a new machine. The old-school motorcycles don’t just look like something out of the 1930s because designs at that time were beautiful. It’s that designs at that time, and today at Janus, let motorcycles do the job well and in a simple way.
Janus doesn’t exactly make custom bikes, but customers easily personalize their new ride through the manufacturer that sits in a small building in downtown Goshen, right between City Hall and The Electric Brew. About 95 percent of Janus bikes are made following the buyers’ personal wishes, rather than made to be put in a showroom where someone might like it enough to hand over thousands of dollars.
