The idea for Cyclepedia began February 2, 1999 – just a short time before the big Indy motorcycle show was set to launch. It took many years of planning, failed starts and mistakes but by 2006 Cyclepedia Press LLC was up and running in a drafty old barn located in the mountains of North Carolina. Inspired by years of conversations with do-it-yourself mechanics who were frustrated by the availability of accurate repair information, Len recognized an unfilled niche in the powersports industry: the distribution of repair information online. Beginning by researching and evaluating existing technologies he approached traditional print publishers with his ideas and quickly realized he was going to have to go it alone. Len purchased the first Cyclepedia vehicle for teardown, hired a professional service technician and writer and picked up his camera. Within 3 months Cyclepedia had its first customer.
In 2007, Cyclepedia licensed and began distributing KTM repair manuals online. Shortly thereafter the company moved to a 5,000 square foot warehouse and hired additional staff. The repair manual library rapidly grew resulting in requests from professional repair shops to bundle them into one product which became known as Cyclepedia Pro.
In 2011 Cyclepedia won a Nifty-Fifty Powersports Business Magazine Award as one of the top 50 coolest products in the powersports industry. Soon after Cyclepedia began a partnership with KYMCO USA to produce OEM Service Manuals & Dealer Training Modules. In 2013 Motorcyclists Magazine mentioned Cyclepedia as one of the top cool products at the American International Motorcycle Exhibition.
Cyclepedia is aggressively expanding its library of motorcycle repair manuals and related services. As of today, Cyclepedia has over 150 online manuals for sale and tens of thousands of useful repair specifications in our database.

“An innovator and enthusiast, you can tell the first time you work with Len that he loves what he does. His latest venture into online service manuals is just an example of how Len is years ahead of the guys that should be doing this. Great guy, industry leader, forward thinker.” – Mike Jackson, CEO, World of Powersports (June, 2010)
“Len is a true visionary in the field of digital communications and he foresaw the paradigm shift that the rest of us print dinosaur moto-journalists had no idea was coming, back in the very early 1990s. His latest venture into online repair manuals is a clear indication that he is still on the cutting edge of what’s next. I think this time I will pay attention when he is casting pearls of wisdom before swine like me!” – Robin Hartfiel, Editor/Publisher, Dealernews Magazine/Advanstar Communications (July, 2009)
Tens of thousands of Cyclepedia customers have made Cyclepedia.com what it is today. We appreciate your business, encouragement and support. Here are some of our favorite customer testimonials:
“Love your Kawasaki Ninja 250 online manual service. As a professional auto tech, I’ve seen good and bad manuals. Yours is very good, has excellent pictures, and handy torque specs and hints. The hyperlinked topics relevant to a repair are great. I haven’t noticed any holes in the info covered…better than a lot of manuals I’ve seen. Being on line is very handy too. No worries about dragging a paper book from home to work or to a friends. The price was half of a paper factory manual, a great value. Keep up the good work. I’ve told all my friends with bikes about your site. Super product.” – M. King
“Thanks for producing the Cyclepedia Honda CRF450 manual. Thus far I have been able to give my bike a complete tune up, which is very complicated in my opinion, and am looking forward to doing much more. Cyclepedia has made the difference in me having enough confidence to work on my own bike. Thanks.” – S. Hussey
“Unfortunately, over the years I’ve learned that online subscriptions typically don’t live up to expectations or are not as advertised. However, your Suzuki DR200 online manual far exceeded my expectations – I am VERY pleased with the photos and step by step instructions. Your online manual has already saved me time and money. Keep up the good work.” – J. Noeske
“Your Honda CRF450 online service manual is a superb publication. I’ve never seen anything as well done or comprehensive. The color photos are sharp and clear, as well as superbly detailed. Absolutely the best money I’ve spent on any type of manual ever, and I’ve been spinning wrenches for 35 years. Thanks a million!” – T. Glander
