Motorcycling Replacing "Weecycling" in Roxbury

ROXBURY, NJ – When it comes to motorcycle shopping in Roxbury it's been a case of lose some, gain some.

On the losing side of the equation: The closure of Trebour Motorcycles, a multi-brand dealership that was on Route 46 in Ledgewood; the demise of Garden State BMW Motorcycles, which was in the building now housing Castle Printing; the shut-down of Legends Harley-Davidson farther west on the highway.

On the up side: The Cycle Exchange, a used motorcycle store at 1395 Route 46, is hoping to become bigger.

The Cycle Exchange owner Nolan Forlenza is renovating a 2,500-square-foot building adjacent to his company’s current 10,500-square-foot structure. The building being reworked was formerly occupied by the Weecycled Consignment Shop.

Plans call for using the building for additional showroom and vehicle preparation space for The Cycle Exchange, a proposal currently being handled by the Roxbury Township Board of Adjustment.

Forlenza is seeking variance relief and amended site plan approval. He wants to re-stripe the parking lot (to regulate 1-way traffic flow), erect new signs, create new doors and accesses to the building, install some new lighting, create handicap access and renovate the façade.

The plans also show that all traffic will enter and leave using the driveways in front of the main building. Nearly 1,300-square-feet of pavement currently in front of the former Weecycled store will be removed and the area bordering Route 46 will be "topsoiled, seeded and mulched." He is also asking the board to allow him to display and sell boats at the main building.

Construction crews are already at work inside the former Weecycle building, performing a complete interior renovation. "We're making it all new inside," Forlenza said.

Forlenza said he also wants to replace - with something larger and prettier - a dilapidated, small building he owns adjacent to his main store on east side. The building once housed a carpet or floorings business.

"We look forward to knocking that down," Forlenza said. "We want to beautify Route 46 there."

They might want to rethink that.

When it snows, it's the perfect opportunity for parents to take the newest driver in their ...

It Began With Filling Your Tank; Now They Fix Your Grandson’s Car

When we drive east on Route 10 through Roxbury, many of us might remember a Shell station at the Randolph border next to the golf range. It was in that station that Nancy and Peyton Knight began their long history of auto repair in the township.

That was 1983 and soon the Knights’ business grew and expanded. The humble gas station gradually morphed into a state-of-the-art ...
