Iron Horse Motorcycles truly began as a Mom & Pop operation. When Mr. Soichiro Honda (1906-1991) first began franchising in the U.S., as American Honda Motor (AHM), Mr. William H. "Bill" Sherrin opened this Honda dealership in 1965—one of the first in the country. Bill's wife and children were an integral part of the business. He also dabbled with small Honda cars and with small aircraft.
And then along came Mike Heafner, current owner/CEO/corporate president of W. H. Sherrin, Inc. DBA Iron Horse Motorcycles.
