Rob’s love for motorcycles began at the age of eighteen with his first bike, a 1986 Honda Shadow. He didn’t know how to ride but he was determined to learn, it of course didn’t make his Mom too happy. During breaks while working at his Dad’s gas station and garage in Yonkers, NY, Rob would push his Honda Shadow into their small parking lot and walk it with the clutch out until he was confident enough to put his feet up and start riding. Experiencing a profound sense of freedom, Rob’s love affair with motorcycles was born.

A few years later Rob arrived in Ocala,Florida with his second bike, a 1988 Honda Hawk GT. Soon after, Rob’s parents helped him purchase his first Harley Davidson, a 1981 FLT. Meanwhile examples. He followed that with a 1979 Harley Davidson FXE, a 1998 FXDWG and then a 1999 FLSTF which he is still riding today, 18 years later. READ MORE

“Today I had my front and rear tires changed to Dunlop American Elites. I talked to 3 other shops to view their shop, their mechanics and to get a price. Walking in and talking to Rob and to Mark, made me forget the other places and Rob and I worked out a deal. Mark did a great job and let me know by showing things to me such as my brake pads and so on….not that I needed any more work but just the condition of my pads and bearings….it is refreshing to have work done where they don't search for more work to do, but honestly inform you of your situation. Mark did the work in an effective and efficient manner and was very careful how he worked around my cycle….I was impressed. Rob is very knowledgeable about anything you may need done and will work with you to make it happen….I highly recommend them for parts and service and anything else you need. !”

“As a lady rider you can occasionally find yourself wondering if a mechanic is just trying to make a commission rather than truly giving your bike the service it needs.. another great reason to go to a shop like Rob Lebowitz's Brick City V Twin.. honesty and integrity! Rob has looked out for me over the years when others would have taken advantage! I've been riding for over 32 years and I'm grateful to have known Rob the last decade. Takes the worry of getting ripped off out of the equation! I recommend to all of my friends and especially my female riding friends!”


“I've watched my husband from the time we started dating take his bikes to the shop for service or a problem & if Rob wasn't there we'd go back another day. So when I wanted to surprise my husband with a gift for his bike I went to Rob & he made it happen. Making any change to someone's bike is a difficult task it's a personal thing but we still love our front wheel that Rob helped me pick out.”

“I have lived in Ocala area since 2000 and bought my second HD from the dealer Rob worked at because of his reputation. Rob is one of the most caring service people I've ever met in my life. I used to write for Dixie Biker, Rider Now and Scooter Goods magazines and whenever I ever needed anything I'd call Rob and he'd be right there to help me. I'm proud to say that I will take all our bikes to Rob from this day forward since he's opened his own shop he's been good to us and I will be true friend to him. Highly endorsed.”


“Every experience I've ever had with Ponytail Rob has been positive. He has gone above and beyond to make sure my bike was serviced, repaired and modified. He's also made sure that I was satisfied with the work being performed. I highly recommend him and I'll be bringing my 06 FXSTI to him.”


“My brakes on my street glide felt spongy and I was going out of town but had a big ride upon return. Rob not only arranged to pick up my bike but also noticed I had a nail in my tire and had it all fixed and returned for to my garage in time for my return and my ride. Great service! ”


“Rob and I built a winning motorcycle for me. Rob ordered all the right parts that worked well together and took care of the bike as though it was his own. It took second place in the Rats Hole and first place on Boardwalk. Want it done right call Rob.”

What all got me interested into cars? The main people who got me into fixing and working on cars was my uncle and my cousin but there was also a famous actor who got me into it and his name was Brian O’Conner because he would drive fast cars and he knew how and what every part of the car does.

There was many people who got me liking cars and working on them. Some of those people were my uncle,cousin,actors and whenever I went to car shows I liked to see the cars. When I would go look at cars I would rather look at the low riders and old school cars. The reason I like those type of cars better is because I like the way they look sound and the way they are meant to just be cruising with. My uncle got me into cars because the way he would have his cars and trucks and he would ask me to help him every time he didn’t have any help. My cousin got me into it because he would always have me with him in his fast cars and he would have his parts new and fixed and I liked the way they looked. The way that actors got me liking cars was because they would either use new fast cars or they would use old school cars. Also my step dad got me into the old school type of cars because he would work on old trucks,cars and motorcycles and we would go see the low riders at the shows. I would prefer to drive in a old school car rather than a new fast car.

This paragraph is about who got me into being interested into cars and why I let them lead me towards cars. The quote “Within every desire is the mechanics of its fulfillment” said by Deepak Chopra. At first i wouldn’t want to be working on cars but after time i liked to customize and fix cars just for fun.
