Q
. What is it supposed to be on the show?
A. Marcus' Motorbikes: a motorcycle garage.


Q. Where is it supposed to be on the show?

A. In Shreveport, Louisiana.


Q. When did we see it on the show?

A. In Episode 9, of Season 4, "Let's Get Out Of Here".

    This is a motorcycle garage owned by Marcus, the alpha leader of the local Shreveport pack of werewolves - the one that Alcide joins.

    We first see it when Alcide goes there to tell Marcus that he wants in the pack.

    He admits that the only reason he wants in is to please his girlfriend, Debbie.  But Marcus is OK with that.

    Marcus then asks Alcide for a favor.  He thinks he has Sam coming over to talk, and he wants Alcide to be there.  Alcide says he's not into beating up guys he doesn't know, but Marcus assures him he's just trying to frighten him, and wants Alcide around because he's big & scary. So Alcide agrees to be there.

    We see it again when Sam's shapeshifter brother, Tommy, shows up at the garage, disguised as Sam.

    He walks in like he owns the place, proceeds to mouth off like a badass, and is promptly beaten to a bloody pulp by the pack members, before he morphs back into Tommy, and Alcide finally has enough and carries him out of there.


Q. What is it actually, in real life?

A. A custom motorcycle garage.  Just nowhere near Shreveport.

Marcus's garage

The location:
Marcus' Motorbike Garage






Q. Where can I find it in real life?
A. This is actually Powerplant Custom Choppers, at 7416 Melrose Ave, in Los Angeles.

That's on the south side of Melrose, about midway between Fairfax and La Brea.

From Melrose Ave, this address appears to be nothing more than a narrow doorway wedged between S&G boutique and a medical marijuana dispensary called "Buds".

But follow that narrow hallway back to the alley (south of Melrose), and here is what you find:


Powerplant Choppers


You can get custom-built bikes here, starting at $25,000 and up.

They have their own website, at www.powerplantchoppers.com.



   Here's a Google StreetView of the place.

   Here is an aerial photo of the location.  And here is a map link.


Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?

    AMike, of MovieShotsLA.com, tipped me to a source that led me to this particular location. (Thanks Mike!)
