Nate Beveridge is our newest service tech and we are glad he is with us! He and his wife recently moved to Libby from the Coast Range Mountains of Oregon, where he had been a motorcycle specialist for the last nine years. He owned his own motorcycle repair shop for several of those years- where he preformed not only general repairs, but also vintage motorcycle restorations, custom builds and powder coating. The last three years he specialized in BMW motorcycles. He went to college for electronics and drove a semi for six years before going into motorcycle repair full time. In his spare time, Nate and his wife Megan enjoy backpacking into wilderness areas, camping, riding motorcycles, fishing, and exploring. If it’s happening outdoors, they’re interested. Nate also plays music, collects records, and restores vintage stereo equipment. Nate and Megan love being in Libby, and look forward to integrating themselves further into the community.
