Woody's Mission Statement
We have been in the wheel repair/restoration/build business since 1973.
At Woody's Wheel Works, we believe in the art of the wheel.
As much as a love for wrenching, we are driven by a philosophy that the wheel is nothing less than the most important invention of all time whose utility is seen in all things, big and small. Since the evidence of the first wheel in ancient Mesopotamia it has worked its way into the soul of humanity. With soulcraft we preserve the harmony between man-and-machine, and this awareness inspires the quality and performance that has made Woody's Wheel Works legendary since 1973.
Such an important part of the locomotion process deserves the attention of true craftsmen. We are committed to providing our customers with the ultimate in wheel services and products along with superior customer service and satisfaction.
We understand what makes wheels work.
Woody has been practicing the art of the wheel since 1973. His approach to the process was forged by his experience in Marine Corps aviation, where excellence is the standard.
"In the Corps, I had to fly in the aircraft I worked on, so I had to make sure they were 100%. There was no way I was going to go up in something that had less than a 100% chance of coming back".
He takes the same approach to wheels.
"I won't let a wheel out of here that I wouldn't race on myself. It's the only way I know."
Knowledge gathered in our racing endeavors over the years is passed on to our customers in the form of continuing innovation and creativity applied to our daily work. Woody has always had a love for motorcycle racing, #11 was a force to be reckoned with on the track. Although he no longers haunts the circuit on his own bike, he still sponsers racers in several categories. This connection to the track fuels the continuing search for better ways to accomplish the goal; stronger, safer, better.
In his years as a road racer and sponser of racers, Woody developed the concept of changing the lace pattern on spoked wheels to eliminate breakage. The concept of SuperLacing was born and bred on the racetracks of Colorado and eventually the world.
"I still have guys racing on wheels I built years and years ago. SuperLace is my gift to the motorcycle world - a world that has brought me so much."T.G. "Woody" Witte - Master Wheelsmith
