Mike Kozda

General Manager

Hello! I'm Mike Kozda, a seasoned professional with 21 years of experience in the power-sports industry. A Tucson, Arizona native, I've always had a knack for thriving under its famously dry heat. In June of 2019, my family and I embarked on a new adventure, moving to Rockwall, and I couldn't be more thrilled to have joined the Harley-Davidson Family here.

When I'm not immersing myself in the world of Harley-Davidson, you'll find me outdoors, taking leisurely walks with my golden doodles, Molly and Chloe. These walks are often filled with laughter, as I can't resist sharing a dad joke or two with anyone willing to listen. Family time is my sanctuary, providing me with joy, grounding, and a constant source of inspiration.

Next time you're around the shop, don't hesitate to drop by and say hi. I'm always up for a chat, whether it's about bikes, the best dad jokes, or simply sharing stories about life.

THE STORY OF Black Gold HARLEY-DAVIDSON® - YOUR PREMIER NORTH TEXAS MOTORCYCLE DEALER

THE FIRST HARLEY-DAVIDSON® DEALERSHIP IN DALLAS

In the Fall of 1929, a brave entrepreneur opened the first Harley-Davidson® motorcycle dealership in Dallas, Texas and simply called it "Harley-Davidson® of Dallas". His name is lost to history. 

Searches of old Dallas business archives and the Harley-Davidson® Motor Company archives come up with nothing but a start date and general address of Main and Elm. A kind gentleman recently sent us information that the original address was 2824 Main St., on the Southwest corner of Oakland and Main Streets . 

Of course, the first Harley® motorcycle dealership in town would be located in Deep Ellum. The residential and commercial area East of downtown Dallas was first called "Deep Elm," but when residents spoke the name, it had a southern twang. It's one of the most historically significant areas of Dallas. Out of Deep Ellum came the area's liveliest entertainment, attracting early jazz and blues musicians and commercial investors.

THE PERFECT PLACE FOR HARLEY-DAVIDSON® near DALLAS

It just makes sense, doesn't it? The brave entrepreneur obviously prospered even in a time when the Great Depression rocked the nation. He bet on a winner, and what a winner Harley-Davidson® motorcycles have turned out to be!

The shop has been owned by a handful of people over the last 88 years, and they've all believed solidly in Harley-Davidson® motorcycles and the great country that birthed them. 

It moved out of that little shop in Deep Ellum, where we've been told by some "old timers" they used to hang out on Saturday, and lean over the chain that separated the Sales Department from the Service Department. 

Eventually, owner Eddie Conley moved the dealership from its downtown location to one on Plano Road in 1974. In 1985 it moved again to Shiloh Road. 

In 1999, then-owners moved the motorcycle shop north to Allen, Texas and everyone thought they were crazy... the only things in Allen, TX at that time were cow pastures and farms. Today, it's a thriving community with welcoming neighborhoods, world class restaurants and shopping, and one of the best school districts and High School football teams in the State of Texas.

Harley-Davidson® of Dallas Becomes Black Gold Harley-Davidson®

Harley-Davidson® of Dallas has moved to a newer, bigger, better facility, and gotten a new name. We'll still be your favorite motorcycle dealer in Allen Texas, but Harley-Davidson® of Dallas has become Black Gold Harley-Davidson®.

YOUR NEW HARLEY-DAVIDSON® DEALERSHIP

We've been part of the Dallas community almost from the very beginning. We've been proudly offering motorcycles for sale and providing motorcycle service for more than 88 years. Several of those were at our previous location at 304 Central Expressway in Allen. We said a sad goodbye to our old location, but we couldn't be more excited about the road ahead.

In 2019 we began construction to expand our facilities and make our Harley® dealership more accessible to our customers in McKinney, Rowlett, Rockwall, Plano and Carrollton. Our area is experiencing explosive growth, and we want to continue to supply the motorcycles, service and merchandise our customers are looking for.

THE BEST DALLAS HARLEY® DEALERSHIP HAS GOTTEN EVEN BETTER

The new dealership is closer to 121 to provide our customers with easier access and more convenience. Here are just a few of the things you'll find inside and outside our 50,000 sqft facility:

  • More room for motorcycles
  • A larger Motorclothes® area with additional merchandise
  • A new H.O.G. chapter room
  • An expanded service bay 
  • A collision room
  • Motorcycle rentals
  • A giant parking lot with contracted on-site training from North Texas Motor Safety School
  • Much, much more!

NEW HARLEY® DEALERSHIP NAME

When moved to our new location, Harley-Davidson® of Dallas in Allen, Texas began to operate under the new name Black Gold Harley-Davidson®. 

Early during the 20th century, prospectors discovered oil at Spindletop near Beaumont, when The Lucas Gusher shot oil 150 feet into the air for days. They called oil "black gold" because it flooded the area with wealth and made motorized travel possible across the nation.

Around the same time, William S. Harley and Arthur and Walter Davidson introduced the first Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. Both black gold and the legendary motorcycles are essential parts of our area's history.

We chose our new name to honor the past and look toward the future. We're excited about the changes, and we'll keep you posted as they develop.

BLACK GOLD HARLEY-DAVIDSON® MOTORCYCLE SALES

Black Gold Harley-Davidson® will still sell new Harley® motorcycles like the following:

  • Harley-Davidson Street
  • Harley-Davidson Sportster
  • Harley-Davidson Softail
  • Harley-Davidson Touring
  • Harley-Davidson Trike
  • Harley-Davidson CVO
  • LiveWire™

We'll also continue to offer used Harley-Davidson® motorcycles and custom motorcycles.
