We are committed to promoting the sport of motorcycling while increasing the awareness of Harley-Davidson® products and services.

Following an extensive racing career, which included winning the Daytona 100 mile race in 1963, Buddy Stubbs started Arizona Harley-Davidson. On July 16, 1966, Buddy Stubbs Arizona Harley-Davidson became the Valley's only Harley-Davidson franchise. 

In the past 48 years, the population in the Phoenix metro area has exploded to over 4 million people. Although five other dealerships dot the landscape, Buddy Stubbs remains the only Harley-Davidson dealer within the City of Phoenix. Our store, originally located on McDowell Road, moved to 13401 N Cave Creek Road in 1985 to better serve our customers. In March of 2005 we relocated into our current 47,000+ sq ft dealership at 13850 N Cave Creek Road (1.5 miles north of Cactus on the West side of Cave Creek Road).

Buddy Stubbs continues to own and operate the business with the help of his two sons, Frank and Jack. Buddy Stubbs and team realize customer satisfaction is top priority when running a successful business.
